The Street Bob is the least expensive of Harley’s big twins at $12,999, but it and the Sportster 1200 Custom can be ordered with enough options using the HD-1 program to take them in many directions, be it even more custom cruiser, cruiser tourer or something in between. You choose from the factory and dealer options when you “build” the bike on Harley’s website (H-D1 also allows you to see other models with many dealer options). The stock FXDB comes with a 96ci engine, but ours was upped to 103ci and the engine was blacked out: $350. The Two-Up seat was $250, the Drag Bar, $180, and the black five-spoke wheels, $460. ABS, which comes combined with Harley’s security system, was $1,195. Of course it needed a flash paint job, so Bob has the new Hard Candy Big Red Flake: $730. The dealer added Distressed Leather Saddlebags, which meant moving the license plate from the left side to under the bobbed fender, and relocating the turn signals a little further back; all that cost $830. And the windscreen is another $425, bringing the total cost of our custom Bob to $17,419. Lots more information is on the H-D1 Bike Builder area at h-d.com/bikebuilder.

I found the two-up seat to be very comfy, but the rear part did not get high points from my passenger.

Love that 103! It really is a big improvement on the 96, providing great acceleration.

The saddlebags do look good, but are a tad small as they have to make room for the shock absorbers.

That is half of the four-point quick-detach system for the windscreen; off or on in less than a minute.
