2007 Harley Davidson Sportster Custom Specs

The 2007 Harley-Davidson Sportster Custom is available with an 883cc or 1200cc Evolution engine.

Celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2007, the Harley-Davidson Sportster is one of the most enduring street machines in motorcycling history, famous for its numerous racing victories on the track and for winning the hearts of thousands of owners and riders since 1957. Eight Sportster models are featured for 2007, including two Sportster Customs, the Sportster 883 Custom and the Sportster 1200 Custom.

While they exhibit the same raw power and high performance abilities for which all the Sportster models are known, the two 2007 Sportster Customs both feature a low-seat height and unique accents not found on the other Sportster models. The trademark bare-bones style is all dressed up in a thick coat of chrome.
