Harley-Davidson calls the XL1200X the Forty-Eight a “Heavy-hitting fat tire style with an iconic peanut tank and bulldog stance.”
Like many XL1200s, the Forty-Eight was a popular platform for customizers like Barry Lacour of Top Shelf Customs.
This example is VIN: 1HD1LC336CC411293. It was originally built by Top Shelf Customs for a friend of Iconic’s, who sold it to the current owner one year ago.
During his ownership, the seller has covered roughly 150 miles. The odometer shows 354 miles.
In preparation for the listing, the seller had us rebuild the master cylinder and flush and fill the front brakes. Additionally, he had new tires installed. The shop notes that the tires are at 100% and 95% and the brakes are at 90% and 95%. The oil is low. The headlight, turn signals, brake light, taillights, killswitch, and horn are all functioning.
