From front to back the Road King Special gets the full blackout treatment, powertrain covers, mufflers, headlamp nacelle, and fork, as well as many of the smaller components, were touched.

2021 Harley Davidson Road King Special Features

Milwaukee-Eight® 114 Engine

The most displacement in standard H-D® Touring models. You get 114 cubic inches of passing and horizon-chasing power.

Reflex™ Linked Brembo® Brakes with Standard ABS

Designed to help prevent the wheels from locking under braking to assist the rider in maintaining control when braking in a straight-line. ABS operates independently on front and rear brakes to keep the wheels rolling and help prevent uncontrolled wheel lock in urgent situations.

Mini-Ape Handlebars

9-inch tall, 1.25-inch wide mini-ape handlebars so you can sit taller, feel more assertive, and ride more aggressively.

Blacked-Out Custom Styling

This machine is end-to-end blacked-out, stripped down bare muscle from the aggressive turbine wheels to the tapered mufflers

Stretched Saddlebags

A sleek look on the outside and roomy on the inside with more than enough space to stash your riding essentials. The lids open with a single touch of a hand.

Blacked-Out Prodigy Wheels

Black, glossy 19-inch front and 18-inch rear aluminum wheels so you can roll in with style and attitude.

Black Headlight Nacelle With Matching Trim Ring

Big and commanding, boasting a darkness-defying headlight so you can see and be seen.

Responsive Suspension

High-performing front and rear suspension with easily hand-adjustable rear shocks put you in control of a plush ride.

    Where do you find parts, never mind just walking into a store for an old hd?

    I have a 92 fat boy and cannot find a pulley shaft.
