Harley-Davidson Forty-Eight and Roller Derby? [Video]

Thu, 10 Jun 2010

Canadian publication Cycle Canada had some fun on a photoshoot for its review of the Harley-Davidson Forty-Eight for the July issue. As Pete wrote in our own review, the Harley-Davidson Sportster Forty-Eight has a rugged, bobber-inspired look with its chopped fender, chubby front tire and underslung mirrors. For the guys over at Cycle Canada, the Forty-Eight conjured up a rather odd image: roller derby.

“We’re trying to make the connection between the resurgence of roller derby and this new Harley-Davidson sportster which has great vintage cues just like four-wheeled roller skates,” says Neil Graham, Cycle Canada editor. “It’s a stretch, we know it’s a stretch. But we like women in leopard outfits.”

It sure looks like they had fun with the girls of the Toronto Roller Derby League. It sure beats our idea of having Kevin Duke review the Harley-Davidson CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide dressed as a Mexican wrestler.
