Pure white Harley-Davidson Road King looks like an expensive, retired police bike

0


Where do police motorcycles go when they retire? Well, depending on the condition and other factors, they might go to the shredder, or under the hammer, or if they’re really, really lucky, somewhere peaceful like, say, Germany.

Harley-Davidson and the police have a long history together. In fact, it took only five years for the Milwaukee company to get under the skin of the first PD, that of Detroit, which began using two-wheelers made by Harley in 1908.

The love affair with law enforcement continues to this day, with the bike maker currently offer three vehicles for “Automobile officers and emergency personnel”. These are variations of the Electra Glide, Road King and Iron 883.

The one you’re looking at here is a Classic Road King, modified to some extent by a German custom shop called X-Trem. We don’t know if he served in law enforcement at the time, but it does look like one who retired from active service on the Old Continent to enjoy his later carefree years.

Wrapped in a pure white paint scheme all over the body, and sporting chrome and black elsewhere, the bike has been beefed up with a host of custom extras.

We get a new brake system with abs, a new fork, Arlen Ness footboards and footrests and a bespoke case system. The front wheel is a large 21 inch piece, there is a new exhaust system to help the engine breathe and an aftermarket seat to take care of rider comfort.

Usually, X-Trem doesn’t say how much it charges for its builds, but close examination of the massive lighthouse reveals the price of this thing. It reads 35,990 euros, or more than $ 42,000 at current exchange rates.
