Custom Harley Softail Breakout Is a Real Standout

With a nice mix of speed and appearance parts, this Softail Breakout is even more muscular than the original.

Without question, one of our favorite Harley bikes is the Softail Breakout. A bit of a departure from your vintage cruiser or touring machine, the Breaktout is a more muscular, lean two-wheeler. With plenty of power and a fat rear tire, it’s more of a throwback to the drag bikes of lore, something that brings real presence to the streets. And this nicely modified 2014 Softail Breakout, which we spotted in the Harley-Davidson Forums Marketplace, takes that concept to the next level.

At first glance, you’ll undoubtedly notice the factory goodies. The 103-inch V-Twin and beautiful Morocco Pearl Gold White paint, for starters. But there’s much more than that beneath the surface, that’s for sure. Using nothing more than genuine H-D parts, the seller gave this Softail Breakout the full-on Stage 1 treatment to enhance both looks and performance.

The former is helped along thanks to a Mustang Fred Kodlin Solo Seat, H-D black levers, LED headlight, and loads of extra chrome. Additional H-D appearance parts include footpegs, shift peg, brake pad, and burst grips. Black axle covers, Custom Dynamics Bullet Ringz, and Black Twisted Inverted mirrors round out the visual upgrades.

To up the performance ante, the seller went to a few different familiar places. A Vance and Hines Big Radius exhaust gives the bike a nice look, killer sound, and a few more ponies. The same can be said for the H-D Screamin’ Eagle Chisel air intake. Toss on a Screamin’ Eagle Super Tuner, and you’ve got the makings of one nice (and speedy) ride.

It’s quite an attractive package for someone looking for a muscular Softail Breakout with goodies already added. And it’s also a nice example of the many killer bikes you can find in the H-D Forums Marketplace!
