Custom Rear Body Kit For Harley Breakout Model

RICKs1RICKsbisRICKsterThe Harley-Davidson® Breakout® motorcycle was introduced in March of this year as a long low-slung Softail® model whose main features are a chopped wide rear fender wrapping a very fat 240 mm rear tire visually balanced with thick forks… I love it when an official Harley-Davidson dealer – through its custom division – jumps very fast at the opportunity to improve the factory work.


In this case, the complete tail end of the Breakout. In this case, a cleaner and stronger steel rear fender showing more of the 240 mm rubber, a streamlined and lower seat with its passenger pad, a special tank to seat cover for a smooth transition (bolted-on in stock location), a pair of narrow turn signals and new cut belt guard. The kit is available for 240 or 260 mm stock and custom rear wheels/tires and works with both the 2013 and 2014 Harley Breakout models. . Email: [email protected] (photography @ H.

    pic is obviously on air bags… wonder what the fender looks like without the air ride suspension dropped.

    How much rain water will spray on the back of your neck? Oh wait, you guys don’t ride in the rain…

    Tell me that’s not just dying for a new Screamin’ Eagle Extreme Billet Ventilator Air Cleaner Kit

    – sorry i couldn’t help it.

    I agree, Eric. It seems there are very few designers that know how to hide an unattractive rear fender support, or make an attractive one that can look good at ride height. For stock Softails there are not many options to accommodate this task. Even most custom Softails just get ugly at the rear section because of it.

    Air bag deflated, whatever,…..
    That pic just goes to show how great that classic “rigid frame look” always was and always will be.
    A true drag-bar, hot-rod scooter.
    Timeless……. 🙂

    (no electric bikes, thank you very much)

    looks like watered down version of the Grindhouse bikes WCC did years ago. Oh, and that is either bagged or sitting on swingarm bumpers. Not sure about that piece between the tank and seat. In the end, looks better than stock.

    That’s what the Rocker C should’ve been.

    I think its funny how just cause you have a nice bike and prefer not to ride in the rain its all the sudden not a real bike and the owners not a real rider lol . Maybe some ppl just prefer not to risk rust working its way on there bike doesnt mean they wont ride in the rain just prefer not to. I think it looks awesome yes you will get some water on you but hey your already riding in the rain anyway lol . I’ve been looking for a shorter fender for my breakout since I did a 2in progressive shock drop on mine . Its low and badass looking and I still ride it as far as I can in my off time just waiting for my custom seat from to come in.

    Will those Vance & Hines ShortShots mount up to a stock Breakout?

    Question: So I’ve seen several pictures of the Breakout with an alternate rear fender that is really close to the tire and then comments about it must be on a lowered airbag. Does anybody know if this is true and if so I’d really like to see a picture with the bike not lowered – anybody seen one?

    For the above question, V&H said the ShortShots will not fit the Breakout without some mods for the O2 Sensor.

    This is nice. Sure it’s not that original but if it’s a bolt-on, then why not. It’s down to the minimum. Not sure I like the link between the seat and the tank… Although I actually like the original wide fender. You will get wet of course but what’s new. I find that this bike gets more water coming from the front with the short fender than my Dyna does. And gets way more dirty. I’ve been trying to make it more 2up friendly but that sundowner pillion as just a cheap laugh and the baggage rack and sissy are in the wrong place – too far forward for passenger comfort. So badly designed. So maybe I should just cave in and go totally solo and this would do it perfectly. But coming from RIcks, I doubt it’ll be cheap… another thing about riding a Breakout in the wet – and I do often – avoid any acceleration with that wide tyre on any white road markings. It’s all over the place !

    Sorry Bill meant Jim. 🙂

    How do i order the seat kit? If you want short shots call Danny in the parts department at Biggs in San Marcos CA.

  22. 22 Jan 27th, 2014 at 7:49 pm

    You wont get wet if you have a hottie on the back fender so who cares. Its all about the look anyway

  23. 23 Themuse6 Jan 28th, 2014 at 6:44 am

    No mention of price for the kit, or distributors.

    If only the Breakout was on the dealers show floors just that way. It would out sale the streetglide hands down.
