Never Ridden and Collector Owned. Limited Edition #513 of 1000, and in the most sought after Colorway.
In celebration of H-D's 95th Anniversary, GT Bicycles has actually developed a limited edition bicycle, the Velo Glide Ultra. Production is limited to 1,000 bicycles. Motivated by H-D's legendary Softail Custom motorcycle, the bike blends 1950's beach cruiser visual appeals with cutting edge bike technology. Production of the Harley-Davidson Velo Glide Ultra is limited to just 1,000 bikes. Under license from Harley-Davidson, GT Bicycles works closely with designers at the bike business. "Capturing the heritage and spirit of Harley-Davidson in a bicycle is quite a difficulty," stated Susan McPherson, Senior Manager, General Merchandise. "The Velo Glide Ultra succeeds in every respect.". Influenced by Harley-Davidson's famous Softail Custom motorbike, the Velo Glide Ultra mixes 1950's beach cruiser looks with state-of-the-art bike technology. Near scale-model fenders and a mock gas tank are highlighted by timeless Harley-Davidson components. Included on that list is a laser-etched air cleaner cover, a fired cloisonne medallion set into the gas tank and handlebar grips made of chrome and rubber. Stock equipment likewise consists of Fat Boy-style saddlebags.
The Velo Glide Ultra appears to be a throwback to an earlier age, the technology of its elements recommends it is undoubtedly an item of its time. Shimano Nexus Flip-Fire shifters cause a 4-speed drivetrain housed in the rear center that is essentially maintenance-free. Contributing to the ultra-plush trip is a Rock Shox Jett suspension fork. Trusted braking is offered by Shimano Inter-M Roller Brakes, front and back. "The smooth blending of contemporary technology and timeless design is a trademark of Harley-Davidson," said McPherson. "The Velo Glide Ultra satisfies that requirement.".
As the Velo Glide Ultra is a real restricted edition, each of the 1,000 bicycles is assigned its own edition number and provided with a certification of credibility. The head badge accessory will be retired upon completion of the manufacturing run.
