    FLHXSE CVO Review

    Fronted by the familiar batwing fairing and girded by the newly redesigned FL chassis, the stylishly slammed 2010 Harley-Davidson CVO Street Glide boasts all the muscular agility of an NBA power forward and flashes more chrome than Dennis Rodman.

    Screamin’ Eagle Motorcycles

    Each year, the shop-shirted covert agents at Harley-Davidson’s exclusive Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO) pluck four models from the Harley-Davidson lineup and, utilizing an arsenal of Screamin’ Eagle performance parts, exclusive paint schemes, and enough chrome to induce pangs of inadequacy in a ’57 Bel Air, recasts them into rarified road-ravaging, lust-inducing examples of what a customer might create with a little imagination and a sizable slush fund.

But this potent touring bike is also loaded with the sparkling chrome, electrifying paint and fresh custom-styling ideas that have defined the CVO program for more than a decade.

    2009 Harley-Davidson CVO Fat Bob | Review

    Notorious CVO

    Last year, the Fat Bob inconspicuously elbowed its way into the Harley-Davidson Dyna lineup, adding some menace to the family with its imposing heft and Tommy Gun exhaust. A tight-lipped knuckle cracker, the surprisingly agile Fat Bob proved it could deliver a serious beatdown and make a fleet-footed getaway. It was George Raft with drag bars.
