2008 Harley Davidson FXSTSSE Screamin Eagle Softail Springer

FXSTSSE2 Screamin’ Eagle® Softail® Springer®
Sporting the perfect blend of modern performance and nostalgic style, Harley-Davidson rolls out a stunning motorcycle with the 2008 FXSTSSE2 Screamin’ Eagle Softail Springer. As a showcase of colour and chrome, the Screamin’ Eagle Softail Springer will excite riders and thrill onlookers everywhere.

This second edition Springer creation from Harley-Davidson Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO) takes a timeless Harley-Davidson motorcycle to powerful and pleasurable extremes with a Twin Cam 110B engine, abundant chrome and dazzling colours, including the serialized 105th Anniversary combination with gold leaf graphics.

Harley-Davidson CVO brings a bold, muscular look to the classic front end of the Screamin’ Eagle Softail Springer for 2008. With a new 18 x 3.5-inch chrome Revolver front wheel and a 130mm, 18-inch front tyre added to colour-matched rigid forks and chromed spring components, the Screamin’ Eagle Softail Springer boasts a wider front fender with a restyled mounting bracket and strut that give the bike an aggressive, daring stance. The front brake assembly moves to the left side of the wheel for a clean look, while the front brake lever has a reduced reach for optimal ergonomics. Other new components include a chrome horn cover, colour-matched frame inserts and chrome rear axle nut covers, along with braided cables and lines.

Approximately 2,500 of the 2008 Screamin’ Eagle Softail Springer will be assembled. The serialized 105th Anniversary package will be limited to a maximum production of 1,050.

Also new to the Screamin’ Eagle Softail Springer is the exclusive Granite and Chrome treatment on the largest-displacement production engine offered by Harley-Davidson.  The 110-cid (1800cc) Twin Cam 110B, a high-performance V-Twin engine, delivers exhilarating performance. The engine is rigid-mounted in the Softail frame and equipped with internal counter-balanced shafts that eliminate 90 percent of primary engine vibration. Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection (ESPFI) is standard on the Twin Cam 110B. The engine is mated to a 6-speed Cruise Drive™ transmission for lower cruising rpm in top gear.

The Screamin’ Eagle Softail Springer will also carry items new to the Softail line for 2008 such as a floating rear brake caliper, bolt-on frame tails and fender support covers, and a new fuel pump line and sender. The Centerline accessory collection remains this year with grips, pegs and brake and shifter pedals and an added Centerline horn cover.  The handlebar is secured with smooth clamps, and tucked in-between is a spun aluminium mini-tachometer with a contoured bezel. Additional colour-matched components include the frame, swingarm, rigid fork, oil tank, headlight bucket, muffler support bar, seat post and top triple clamp.

The Screamin’ Eagle Softail Springer will be offered in three exclusive colour combinations with two new graphic schemes: The scalloped flame metal grind scheme will feature Inferno Orange with Fireburst Flames and Black Diamond with Smoked Candy Flames. The 105th Anniversary scheme of Crystal Copper and Black Diamond will include gold leafing graphics and a serialized 105th anniversary cloisonné. Frame and swingarm are colour-matched with each paint pattern.
