HD Blackline Softail
We know custom bikes are not supposed to be jumped, ridden in the mud or thrashed. It’s something most people wouldn’t do and for good reason. It hammers your bike, your parts and your body. But the thing is many of our customers are hard riders, they come from all walks of life and sometimes they do the same dumb shit we do, so test we must. We ride in all conditions, dirt, rain, mud, twisty roads and anything else we can find to push ourselves past the norm in the name of improving our products. The black line got no preferential treatment.
 
 
Royal Purple is recognized for their high performance synthetic lubricants. Their sole mission is to develop products that significantly outperform the competition. It was an easy call when they wanted to work with us for their Outperformer Series campaign. They took over our shop a few months back filling it with fancy lights and other expensive camera equipment. They produced an amazing video and we would like to thank Royal Purple for this great opportunity. Check them out on Facebook!

HD Blackline Softail
 
In the early days HD was making a name for itself on dirtracks worldwide against Triumph, BSA, Indian and countless other brands. When it comes to big twins HD seems to of forgotten how much fun a massive V-twin can be in the dirt. That takes us to our Blackline. First we fully stripped her down and chopped off everything extra. Next was to add back to get her dirtrack ready. 19” RSD Judge wheels are the biggest attitude change along with Goodyears, a new fender and mount, RSD spring seat kit, prototype bars and gauge re-locator, among a host of other little changes and RSD parts. Dirty and narrow minded, just the way we like it.
Check back for shots of it in action.

Finished rendering of the bike. We're a little bit behind on this blog but next is paint and our 2012 photo shoot. We have some great photos coming so hold on tight and have a happy New Year.

HD Blackline Softail
We opted out of the number plate as we found a solution using our RSD sporty gauge cluster and a sporty headlight which works perfectly with the black line gauge and puts the headlight in a nice location. Using the RSD low risers and a new moto bend welded bar allows a clear view of the gauge and a dirt track worth bar position.
HD Blackline Softail
Being that she will spend some time in dirt we thought it only right to put some fork boots on her legs as well as building a skid plate in front of the motor that rolls under the frame rails.
HD Blackline Softail
Rear fender and fender mount finished. Got our first set of Black Ops Judges 19X3 front and rear for the Blackline. The goodyears fit perfectly and the bike now has a very aggressive dirt worthy stance. We’ll be wrapping the seat and tank cover in aged black leather with some tooling details by our friend Mauricio from Azteka. Design to come soon.

HD Blackline Softail
 Handlebars. This was probably the most controversial part of the black line. You either hated it or you hated it. They just looked a little goofy and the worst part is the bars are impossible to change out without fabrication. We’re working on changing that. We’ve fabricated a clean set of dirt track pullback bars for plenty of control when pitching her sideways.

The conceptual phase of the Blackline.
Blog 2
HD Blackline Softail
 
A simplified and narrowed up rear end was the chief priority so we removed the very heavy rear fender and struts as well as the seat. We fabricated a new narrowed fender that mounts to the swingarm and hugs the tire just right.. We’re thinking we might offer the Narrowed rear fender kit for softails in the future.
 

HD Blackline Softail
With the rear fender rigid mounted a new solo spring seat was next. We used the RSD spring seat kit which bolted up easily and gave us an instant vintage feel with no fabrication.

HD Blackline Softail

The Harley Davidson Blackline Softail was aimed at the younger customer looking for something raw and to the point. HD tried valiantly, but as with many other models, once you squeeze something through a committee and budgets you end up with what you end up with. In the case of the Blackline, it’s a slightly overpriced, blacked out, narrow rear tire Softail that has yet to inspire the mass majority of chopper geaks to pick up a torch. But what it lacks in punch it makes up for in possibility. We love the narrow rear tire and simplicity of the base model Blackline. All she needs is a little imagination and some elbow grease to get something that is going to be much lighter than the stock machine.
 
We’re using the WR flat head as inspiration for this project. Light weight and trimmed up for a little dirttracking, or maybe a Daytona Beach sand race.

What the bike could use is the 110 kit and play with the cam lift and duration as well as a little gear reduction in the primary to give it a little more top performance since it has the six speed with the sixth gear being one to one you don't have the limits of overdrive. And maybe a shorter rear fender with less of a side wall to show off that narrow rear tire! Top it off with a good set of low risers and maybe 12'' z bars to run with the overall aggressive look of the bike and a two into one that's two and a half inch that ends with a 3'' hard hook cut running parallel with the bottom frame rail. And for the love of god get rid of that thick bulky seat and run something shorter to give it that drop seat look. And raise the front of the tank up this will allow you to run the harness under the tank

OK, so I'm digging the bars, triple, fender, etc. But the blackline is not a race bike nor a.dirt tracker. I kinda wish the build was more of a slammed streeter. The seat would look really cool if it were down lower. Not trying to be a hater but I wish it took on more of a lightweight alley bruiser than a dirt bike. Just my two cents. When can I be expecting to be able to purchase the bar setup? And guys, alot of us like riding two up.... need some two up parts like cool seats and an exhaust that doesn't eliminate the passenger pegs! Lol

I agree with yr point of view : a little imagination ( and work ) could make the blackline a modern chopper, slighter than the usual cow-built HD design. I'm planning it in France for my girl, and we're enthusiastic about the project. I think it's going to look like a metalflake chopper, with Z-bar, uswept long fishtails, rigid rear fender monted rigid close to the tire, round simple aircleaner, solo spring seat, and a thin long sissy b. I want it to fit a girl, as well as my personal fenderless crossbones fits me. Thanks for your suggestion about mounting in your post, and congraztulation for your project. www.saladin-de-tolosa.com to get my email adress, I'll be glad to have more discussions about this matter.

Just a suggestion.. If you're not very sure with how Blackline's owners would appreciate and buy those cool parts, you can just produce an RSD's Blackline Top Triple Tree which accept your current available products (riser, handlebar & sportster gauge relocator). This idea may help to test the market demands without producing many new items, and absolutely will gain up your sales on the current available parts as well. But for sure, all Blackline's owners will replace those so ugly parts with your kick ass products. We either say we hated it, or we hated it! That's RIGHT!! Go to productions!!

Hi, Firstly... LOVE YOUR WORK! Some really awesome stuff coming out of your shop. Desperately trying to find a solution to the handlebar issue with the Blackline... and your's is by far the best.

We have not yet decided whether or not to make these parts production. Your best bet would be to get a top triple clamp from Todd's Cycle. It moves the riser holes to standard 3.5" on-center so you can use any handlebar. www.toddscycle.com

My only and final problem of many is that under the stock there is a square kinda regulator box with a large plug under neith, when i place the roland sands seat on the bike, it hits the box. where do you guys re mount this electrical component?

We recommend use of a shorter battery (Yuasa YTX12L-BS or Antigravity). This allows you to fit the ECM and an EFI tuner underneath your seat, on top of the battery.

It kills me that you have such a lineup of custom bars and seeing the speedo kit that we all desperately are wanting. I'm just keeping the dream alive here but there is only one other place I've found that offers a relocation kit but still doesn't fix the spacing issue to use your bars! I hate it and I hate it, make that relocator and a line of bars for the "liners"! Vintage please, Black ops :)

That's another check on the tally! Hopefully we will have some Blackline-specific bars in the near future for people just like you. Thanks for the iinput. Tell your friends. If you cant wait, Todd's Cycle does make a top triple clamp that offers 3-1/2" on-center riser mounting holes. Tell them we sent you.

We used our Sportster gauge & headlight relocator with the stock Blackline gauge and a Nightster headlight. We had to make a custom bracket and modify the top triple. Todd's Cycle sells a triple clamp that is a simpler option http://toddscycle.com/n_parts/n_parts_blackline.html

You should sell the mid controls for the softail.

What mods did you do to change from belt drive to chain drive and what are the specs for the chain drive? From what I see you're using the 48-tooth brake/sprocket from PM. What's the are the specs for the chain drive? Thanks.

Yes, we use a PM Sprocket-Brake (Sprotor) kit and a front countershaft sprocket from PBI. Unfortunately, we do not know what offset was used on this particular bike. Zipper's makes some simple conversion kits worth checking out. http://www.zippersperformance.com/all-products/transmission-drive-line/chain-conversion-kits/chain-converion-kits-softails.html

SOryr but just havet had enough demand to justify making this as production. Todd's Cycle make a triple clamp the moves the gauge and allows you to run 3-1/2" on-center risers and any standard bar. Check them out.

I would be interested in the rear fender, especially if it were made for the stock blackline (and other 150 tire Harleys). Aside from the cool look of it, the bolt on axle mount brackets for the struts would really make it great and easy to install for those of us with no welding skills.

This is a OEM Harley Blackline gas tank and dash. A Blackline tank should fit right onto any EFI Softail frame.

19"x3,5" wheels: Are they available? So far I couldn' find them. Sprocket Break: I only know it from the catalogue.Is such a break more efficient than a disc? I have been told it is more a "park assistance". But in the video it looks different.

19X3.5 are special order wheels. The sprocket break performs the same as a disc.
