Formerly owned by Johnny Hallyday

2010 Harley-Davidson FLHXXX Street Glide Trike

  • Frame no. 1HD1MBM39AB851405

Without Reserve

Documents: US Title

  • Originally owned by Jean-Philippe Smet aka Johnny Hallyday
  • Less than 6,000 original miles
  • A unique custom Harley-Davidson Trike

In appearance, the 2010 FLHXXX Street Glide Trike looks much like its two-wheeled cousin from the front, save for a few changes to the rake angle, front stabilization strut and the braking set-up. The Street Glide Trike was based on a new chassis that had been specifically designed for a three-wheel application. The rake was increased to 32 degrees, while the forks were stretched by 1.775 in., enhancing steering control by reducing effort by up to 25 per cent. Additionally, a steering damper minimizes wobble and lessens bump steer when negotiating turns.

Power comes from a twin-cam 103 V-Twin with electronic fuel injection. It delivers 101 foot-pounds of torque at 3,500 rpm and is mated to the same six-speed Cruise Drive transmission used on Harley’s other touring bikes. Bringing the three-wheeler to a halt are dual front discs and a dual-disc rear brake system.

This fully customized FLHXXX Trike was originally owned by French rock ‘n roll legend Johnny Hallyday and was kept at his home in Los Angeles, California. The unique Buckwild paint job features traditional flames, very much fitting Hallyday’s rock persona. Other custom features include a Bluetooth stereo system, Battistinis shifters, brake pedal, derby cover, footboards and Thunderheaders to ensure this custom Trike announces its arrival. Hallyday was seen many times riding this bespoke Harley around Southern California before he sold it to the current owner in 2016. Included with the sale is the original California registration and insurance card noting Hallyday’s ownership as well as a copy of the California title.

• Ancienne propriété de Johnny Hallyday, la star française du rock ‘n roll
• Moins de 6 000 miles d'origine
• Unique trike Harley-Davidson customisé

Apparemment, vue d'avant, la FLHXXX Street Glide Trike 2010 ressemble beaucoup à sa cousine à deux roues à part quelques différences au niveau de l'angle de chasse, de la fourche et du système de freinage. Le Street Glide Trike s'appuyait sur une nouvelle structure conçue spécialement pour une application trois-roues. L'angle de chasse passait à 32° et la fourche était allongée de 4,5 cm, ce qui améliorait le contrôle de direction tout en réduisant l'effort de 25%. De plus, un amortisseur de direction permettait de réduire les mouvements de guidon intempestifs au passage de bosses ou les risques de guidonnage.

Le moteur était un bicylindre en V 103 ci avec système d'injection électronique. Il développait 14 de couple à 3 500 tr/mn et il était relié à la même transmission Cruise Drive six-rapports que celle utilisée sur les autres motos Harley-Davidson. Le freinage de ce trois-roues était assuré par un double disque à l'avant et deux disques sur les roues arrière.

Ce trike FLHXXX complètement customisé a appartenu à l'origine à la star française du rock ‘n roll Johnny Hallyday, et il était garé dans sa résidence de Los Angeles, en Californie. Le thème de peinture unique "Buckwild" présente des flammes traditionnelles, et correspond bien à la personnalité "rock" du chanteur français. La machine comporte d'autres équipements spéciaux, comme un système stéréo Bluetooth, des accessoires Battistini (sélecteur, pédale de frein, repose-pieds, couvercle d'alternateur), ainsi que des échappements Thunderheader pour s'assurer que l'arrivée de ce trike ne passe pas inaperçue. Johnny Hallyday a été vu souvent en Californie du sud au guidon de cette Harley spéciale avant qu'il ne la cède en 2016 à son actuel propriétaire. Le document d'immatriculation et d'assurance d'origine, pour la Californie, mentionnant l'appartenance à Johnny Hallyday, est fourni avec la moto.
