Review and Photos by James Yeager James Yaeger II Thumbnail

This Harley Davidson motorcycle used the Evolution V-Twin engine and definitely turned a lot of heads when it rolled past. Featuring magnificent power and torque along with a Softail frame for comfort this bike is ready to go – anywhere. Utilizing styling cues from the classic chopper look and the reliable FX frame/forks this model supports a larger rear tire for additional comfort and a king and queen seat for passengers.


For the Modeler: This is a Revell SnapTite #85-7309 Harley Davidson FXSTC Softail Custom kit. It is a 1:8 scale, a Skill Level 2 and 67 pieces. The pieces are molded in; metallic red, chrome, clear, orange clear, and clear red with black vinyl tires and waterslide decals. This kit was released in 1996 and is still a lot of fun to build almost twenty years later. Even though the kit is out-of-production they are still readily available at online auctions and garage sales for a reasonable price. The finished dimensions are; 11½ L, x 4½” W x 6”H. Here is another reproduction from Revell of a highly admired motorcycle produced by Harley Davidson.
