Photo Gallery: 2008 Harley-Davidson Softail Cross Bones Retro Cruiser

Harley Taps Nostalgia and Adds a Springer to the Softail Lineup


Harley-Davidson's 2008 Cross Bones joins the Softail family as an homage to post-war era bobbers.

Starting at $16,795 in black and $17,140 with color paint, the Cross Bones boasts ape-hanger style handlebars, springer front suspension with leading link forks, and a considerable height of 49.4 inches.

Key features include:

  • An air-cooled, 1,584cc Twin Cam 96B powerplant that produces 87.9 ft-lbs of torque at 2,750 rpm
  • A six-speed Cruise Drive transmission
  • An adjustable sprung solo seat that sits as low as 26.6 inches
  • Straight shot exhaust with chrome slash-cut mufflers
  • A 200mm rear tire
  • Gloss Black cat-eye tank console with a new speedometer face

Weighing 737 lbs in "running order," the Harley-Davidson Softail Cross Bones isn't the nimblest of motorcycles, but its bobber styling cues and retro details effectively reinforce the nostalgic style that typifies the Harley-Davidson brand.
