Low-profile rear opens the Road King Custom to the masses
Will be picking flies from your teeth as there is no screen as standard

Not tested

Inspired by the California beach scene, the Road King Custom oozes retro chic. Long and low with smooth clean lines in the true CA custom mould.

The low profile rear suspension and deep bucket seat combine to give the lowest seat height of any touring Harley.

The bullet front and rear turn signals, streamlined rider footboards, passenger pegs, brake pedal and smooth chrome tank console add to the factory custom appeal of the Road King Custom.
