2006 Harley-Davidson Sportster 1200 Custom – XL1200C
MSRP $9,595

The Harley-Davidson Sportster 1200 Custom tires have chrome slotted disc with wide tire in back. Laced wheel up front. Center stage sits the 4.5-gallon tank. The machine takes over your thoughts. In the saddle, you feel it in the forward foot controls and low seat. But thumb the starter to the rubber-mounted, black powder-coated, chrome-covered Evolution engine and there’s simply no mistaking what made the 1200 Custom legendary.
