Four decades have roared by since Harley-Davidson introduced the Softail motorcycle line, forever changing the cruiser world.

These bikes blended timeless design with innovative engineering, offering a comfortable ride disguised by a classic hardtail look.

The Softail platform continues to be a hotbed for customization, both for current models and those no longer in production, like the Softail Slim S.

Even though Harley doesn’t manufacture the Slim S anymore, these motorcycles are still turning heads and getting wrenching treatment in garages around the world.

Gear up motorcycle enthusiasts, especially those who love a clean aesthetic, and the Harley-Davidson Softail Slim S.

The Dark Hopper, a custom masterpiece by Thunderbike, represents a striking reimagination of the original bike.

Built in 2016, it boasts one of the final Twin Cam engines ever produced by Harley-Davidson before the 2017 switch to the Milwaukee-Eight.

Clocking in at a substantial 110 cubic inches and enhanced with Screamin’ Eagle components, this engine is a force to be reckoned with.

Though the tweaks to the Slim S might seem minor, the Dark Hopper emerges as a completely transformed machine, both visually and in spirit.
