Maisto 1:24 Scale Harley Davidson Ford F150 Pick-Up 2010 with Motorcycle. Die-Cast and Plastic Construction, includes a Harley Davidson Motorcycle. In 2000, Ford released the first Harley-Davidson Edition F-150; it was available in a SuperCab with a standard-length bed. For 2001, the Harley-Davidson Edition was moved to the Supercrew F-150. In 2002, Ford opted to further specialise the Harley-Davidson Edition by adding the supercharged engine from the SVT Lightning, with a slightly larger upper pulley to reduce boost by 2 lb (0.91 kg). To coincide with Harley-Davidson’s centenary, the 2003 edition added the requisite 100th Anniversary badging; these were available on SuperCrew F-150s with the supercharged 5.4L V8.
For the 2004–08 F-150, the Harley-Davidson Edition became mainly an appearance package; its availability was expanded to the F-250 and F-350 Super Duty series. On February 10, 2008 at the St. Louis Auto Show, the latest version of the Harley-Davidson F-150 was introduced. Adopting many luxury features of the Platinum Edition, this Harley went one step further by providing leather seating surfaces derived from authentic Harley biker-jacket materials, as well as the requisite exhaust tones and power to reach a top speed of 115 miles per hour (185 km/h). In 2012 Ford discontinued the Harley-Davidson Edition and replaced it with the Limited trim level.
FL is a model designation used on motorcycles manufactured by Harley-Davidson from 1941 to present. Mostly applied to Harley’s large-framed bikes, including the current Touring series, the FL designation is also used with their Softail series, especially on Softails with traditional styling, 16-inch front wheels, and either Springer forks or large-diameter telescopic front forks. Harley-Davidson offered the spring suspension units on these models and recommended their use on sidecar combinations, because the hydraulic forks did not have enough trail to allow the combination to be stable enough for safe operation. A more highly tuned engine with high-compression heads, higher-lift cams, and polished ports, was offered with the FLH version of 1955. The FLH designation has continued up to the present.
