Start with personal style

The 1200 Custom motorcycle comes equipped with chrome five-spoke cast aluminum wheels, a black engine with chrome covers, and Vivid Black paint, but you customize it to suit your style by adding Classic laced wheels, or Cool Blue Pearl paint and a colour-matched side cover kit. How about the unmistakably menacing addition of the Willie G™Skull Collection, or the luxurious touch of the Harley-Davidson® Diamond Ice Collection? No matter what your personal style might be, from traditional to flashy, the H-D1™ Bike Builder let’s you choose the wheels, paint, engine trim and other Retailer installed options to turn the – 1200 Custom motorcycle into a rolling expression of who you are.

Choose performance options

Your bike’s looks aren’t the only thing available for customization. The HD-1™ Bike Builder also lets you choose your 1200 Custom motorcycle performance options as well. Engine components, exhaust and intake can all be mixed and matched to provide you with a truly custom motorcycle.

Focus on Fit

Whether it’s your first time on a bike or your 51st, you want to be comfortable and you definitely want to be safe. Making sure that your bike fits you correctly can help you achieve both.

With HD-1™ Bike Builder, different combinations of foot control location, seat and handlebars on the Harley-Davidson® 1200 Custom motorcycle can be selected to adjust the fit of the motorcycle to a rider’s stature. This impacts more than just the look of the bike, but also your overall comfort.

Function

How you equip your bike for the miles ahead significantly impacts your comfort and convenience. Saddlebags, windshields, luggage racks and passenger back rests all help you get the most out of your ride and keep your options open.
