I spotted this bike today in my Son In laws Car showroom in Bangkok, it's obviously a Harley Davidson, but does anyone have any more info on it as regards age etc.

    Looks like it's quite recent.

    Maybe made as some kind of interesting advertising curiosity to get people talking.

    Wouldn't like to climb any mountains on it.

    Or ride down the west coast of America on it.

    In fact, what do you think it's for?

    Astana's new TDF kit if you look very closley you can see the battery packs hidden just above the back wheels.

    HD will put their name on anything. And anything with their name on it will be bought by some lemming. The bike in the photo looks fairly recent but they have done a few different versions over the years. In my 52 years on this earth I have never seen one actually being ridden. They do attract attention in showrooms, pubs and museums though. :?

    i'm not a harley fan but i'd buy it as a fan of cycling, nice talking point.

    i was in hong kong a little while back and saw a bike on display at a car showroom used much like the bike above.
    loved that bike, no idea what it was but it was great - think cannondale hooligan, similar size with 20" wheels, it had single front fork and single rear chainstay- the rear wheel just cantilevered over the back, it was hub geared with a belt drive system all totally bling with loads of tricked out parts - absolutely amazing
