Second of the collection's two 1998 Heritage Springers, this one is black with blue stripes and is in essentially all-stock trim. In excellent condition, it has covered less than 5000 miles since new and was purchased from the original owner.

During the 1990s, bike-makers had discovered the marketing strength of retro-style V twin cruisers, so almost every company had an entry in the category. With the Heritage Springer – in the lineup from 1997-2003 – Harley made a statement about authenticity, something noted by Cycle World magazine in its road test of the bike.

"If retro is what you want, it's hard to argue with the assemblage of coils and chrome that makes up the Heritage's springer front end," said the editors. "It may have revised geometry and Teflon bearings, but this thing's got roots that go back to 1908. Of course, the Heritage is old only in appearance. One of the givens in this War of the Retros is that everyone from Harley to Honda has to take styling leads from yesterday's motorcycles. The difference is that the Heritage is more than just a copy. Think of it as a re-issue. With improvements."
