Here’s a lil’ Q&A with its current owner:
1. Does your motorcycle have a name? If yes, what is it and what is the meaning behind it?
The name of my forty eight is Midnight, the name says it all, Black Black Black.
2. What makes your motorcycle unique?
What makes Midnight unique is it is tastefully done from the black laced wheels to the gloss black Hollywood handlebars. Everywhere you look is black, front forks, headlamp, blacked out engine & primary case, forward controls, and let’s not forget the flawless black factory paint on the fenders and peanut tank.
3. What is your favorite feature on your motorcycle?
My favorite feature on Midnight is the the way she sits, with the 16” wheels custom Harley Davidson spring seat and Hollywood Bars, it feels great. But I would be lying if I said the Vance and Hines drag pipes aren’t the best feature on Midnight. The neighbors know when I’m coming home.
4. What is the longest ride you’ve done with this motorcycle?
I don’t do many long trips as I use too as in my younger days, however I’ve done some charity rides and poker runs that were two hundred fifty plus miles.
5. What is your favorite memory of your motorcycle?
My favorite memory on this bike is in Long Beach Island N.J. Pulling up to an outdoor dining restaurant and literally everyone stoped eating and just stared.
6. What do you think is the biggest misconception about your motorcycle?
I think the biggest misconception of Midnight and the Sportsters is it’s a beginner’s bike, I have owned over a dozen bikes and have forty years of riding experience and I love riding this bike.
7. Why are you selling your motorcycle?
The only reason I’m selling Midnight is do to health related issues.
8. What type of rider would be an ideal owner for your motorcycle?
The ideal owner for Midnight would be one that would appreciate all that has be done to her.
9. What advice do you have for the future owner?
Maintain her and she will be around a long time.
