2003 Harley-Davidson VRSC V-ROD Anniversary Custom
Frame no. 1HD1HAZ403K834303

In 2001, Harley-Davidson broke with nearly 100 years of tradition and jumped on the 'overhead camshaft' bandwagon with their new VRSC 'V-Rod' engine. Developed in concert with the Porsche Engineering company, double-overhead camshafts were used for better breathing and more accurate valve control; the cylinders were water-cooled, and the included angle of the cylinders was 60-degrees – all radical departures for this most conservative of companies.

The first V-Rod engines of 1,100 cc produced 115hp at the crankshaft – certainly enough for impressive smoky burnouts, but the chassis was no canyon carver; the target audience was the street cruiser enthusiast who wanted an impressive stoplight missile launcher and stretched-out riding position. The brushed aluminum bodywork and solid aluminum disc wheels created a very distinctive look; aggressive and custom. Riders took to the new machine well, especially if they had actually taken the bike for a spin – with a smooth and very powerful engine, the V-Rod became a firm favorite with many riders. It's certainly not a small machine, but it has one of the lowest seat heights of any motorcycle, which makes the bike feel small and manageable. The all-new perimeter frame gives an incredibly stable ride, with superb handling for the cruiser class - no nasty surprises when the bike is pushed. And it has power
to spare.
This 2,000-mile V-Rod has unique custom paint applied early in its life that's still pristine, however, the bike has been in long-term covered storage and thus will require some detailing but it has been recently serviced and so is road worthy. It has a brand new fairing and seat, and a tank cover.
