2014 FLHTK Harley-Davidson Ultra Limited


TRiO Leaning 3-Wheel Conversion by Tilting Motor Works


3,537 miles, VIN #1HD1KEL19EB690549

This head-turning Ultra Limited in Daytona Blue Pearl has been newly modified in October 2016 to replace the front wheel with a new TRiO(TM) front end by Tilting Motor Works, Inc. in Snohomish, WA. The conversion included all new wheels, tires, brakes, suspension in a unique leaning configuration that provides complete freedom to lean through the corners like a 2-wheeler with no compromise to the ride. This bike does NOT stand up by itself. An optional TiltLock(TM) self-stabilizing hydraulic system from Tilting Motor Works can be added in the future. 

This vehicle is ideal for riders who want the added confidence and safety of a 3-wheel platform without sacrificing the performance, handling, and fun of a 2-wheel ride. It leans and countersteers just like the original 2-wheeled bike, while the extra contact patch up front provides faster and more secure cornering and improved braking. Coaxial front independent suspension makes for a forgiving ride with no fork dive and no bump steer. Riders also report that the additional wheel provides greater tracking stability and improved resistance to cross winds. 

Because it leans, this vehicle is much less demanding and more fun to ride than any conventional trike or Spyder! It tears through the corners and thrives on bad road surfaces. Because nothing restricts the lean, you can grind off the floorboards if that's how you like to ride.

The MSRP of the 2014 Harley-Davidson® Ultra Limited model FLHTK was $25,899. It is a premium full-featured touring bike built from the ground up with authentic Harley-Davidson® grand American touring style. Fire up the Twin Cam 103™ engine and feel the low-end torque unleashed. Thanks to the lightweight piston design, delivery of the added power is more refined than ever. Then put your foot on the shifter and feel how the engine and Six-Speed Cruise Drive® transmission were designed to work together. Six speeds. A strong driveline and strong internal parts. Low routine maintenance. And a low cruising RPM that couldn’t feel better. 

For 2014, the Ultra Limited received more room and touring comfort for the passenger and a redesigned iconic batwing fairing to reduce head buffeting. GPS navigation and cruise control, Daymaker LED headlight, rear speakers with passenger volume controls, wired intercom jacks, One-Touch saddlebag latches, and heated rider and passenger seats round out the package.

Additionally, this bike is extensively tricked out with elegant Willie G skull-motif accessories including mirrors, floorboard and pedal inserts, horn cover and more. The stylized skull design might not jump out at first glance but it adds weight and coherence to the entire look. Other accessories include:

  • Rinehart Racing Slimline Duals® exhaust with chrome tips for a bellowing rumble
  • Premium Tour-Pak luggage rack and accent rail
  • Touring saddlebag lid rails and rail medallions
  • Arlen Ness 10-Gauge inverted Big Sucker air cleaner – chrome
  • Color-matched Daytona Blue Pearl interior

This Ultra Limited has been tuned using Harley-Davidson’s Screamin’ Eagle EFI Super Tuner, which is supplied with the bike. 

Together, all accessories listed above retail for over $3,000. The Tilting Motor Works conversion is factory new, with an MSRP of $9,995 for the kit plus $1,200 paint and $1,000 installation.
