Le Pera Seats Break-Out

The Line-up for Softail Breakout Models

Big wheels, big paint and classic drag-bike attitude meet modern refinement. Then we stuff it brimful with raw power. What do you bet, next year with the new M-8 engine.

Nothing like a fistful of American street muscle.

Feast your eyes on the Breakout. Its profile is low, stretched out and undeniably aggressive. We top it with drag bars and enhance its custom look with 21-spoke Turbine wheels. The High Output Twin Cam 103B engine delivers loads of torque to a wide 240mm rear tire. ABS comes standard. Go out and put a hard pounding on the pavement. It doesn’t get any better.

I’ll never forget the first one I saw. Ben Lambeouf road tested one and rode it to the Bikernet Headquarters. I was blown away. Stock bikes don’t look this good. At last, the Factory nailed this one, albeit maybe a decade late. Hell, the wide tire craze was long gone, but what the hell. A good looking chopper is hot whenever it hits the streets.



Get an eyeful of a Softail motorcycle and you see more than some weepy-eyed exercise in nostalgia. You’re looking at the kind of style that has the power to defy time. Honest. Uncluttered. So, how could you improve on the classic styling? I only see two obvious upgrades, the seat and bars. Sure you could add some bling accessories, but just a new Le Pera seat and a set of custom apes would make this a hard-riding street fighter anywhere and it’s damn near stock—amazing.

Here’s the classic line-up from Le Pera, and if you want to go beyond what you see here you can order stitching to match your paint or even exotic materials. Check out the best of the traditional best.





BARE BONES—SOLO

Killer "Spring Mounted" look!

Yes, that means a bit of the mechanics of the bike are exposed. You will notice the seat lines don't follow the strut, as if the seat were spring mounted.
