The 2013 Harley-Davidson Sportster Seventy-Two XL1200V is a bare bones radical custom motorcycle. From front to rear, the Seventy-Two sports a bold, vintage look that recalls classic bobbers and the styling of ’70s choppers. New for 2013, the XL1200V Sportster Seventy-Two comes with optional Hard Candy Custom, a large metal flake paint finish that recalls the iconic styling of 1970s custom bikes, and offers blazing color showing through a deep, rich finish. With its large metal flake paint, peanut tank, round retro-style air-cleaner cover, ape-hanger handlebars, and brilliant whitewall tyres, the Sportster Seventy-Two boasts a one-of-a-kind custom style that’s full of attitude. And the Seventy-Two is uniquely priced to be an incredibly attractive value. No other bike in its class offers so much no-nonsense retro attitude and modern high-end style at such affordable cost.

The Harley Seventy-Two is a masterful mix of vintage bobber and contemporary retro-chopper styling. Its powerful Evolution engine gives it impressive road muscle. The XL1200V’s big-flake paint on the fuel tank is eye-catching, expressive, and of the highest Harley-Davidson quality. Forward-mounted controls make the Seventy-Two XL1200V comfortable for cruising across town. The H-D XL1200V is an attractively priced bike that brings the best of modern chrome-and-bling appeal to an aggressive, old-school chopper attitude. The Seventy-Two screams high-end custom, at a price that makes the it truly accessible. For more retro-inspired modern custom rides, take a look at other 2013 Harley-Davidson Sportsters, like the XL1200X Forty-Eight, or the new 2013 Softail Slim FLS, which brings the best of old-school 1940s-era bobber style to today’s streets with a contemporary flair and up-to-date ride technology.
