The "Heirloom Red Fade" colour is exclusive to the Harley-Davidson Heritage Classic 114, the Fat Boy 114, the Street Glide 114, and the Road Glide 114 anniversary edition bikes. Its base colour is a pretty shade of red, and a black faded effect adds a light two-tone look. The anniversary edition logo, which is shaped like a flying eagle with the Harley-Davidson branding in the centre, adds to the distinctiveness. The special "1903-2023: 120 years" lettering is located below this. Aside from this, the anniversary edition bikes stand out thanks to additional details like the blacked-out engine with coordinated red accents on the engine casings and the black exhaust pipes that replace the shiny chrome ones on the other versions. The limited-edition motorcycle also features hand-applied gold paint on the emblems, red fade and gold engine inserts, and fuel tanks with laser-etched serial numbers.
