1973 Harley-Davidson FLH Electra Glide

The FL is a model designation used by Harley-Davidson since 1941. In 1965 the Electra-Glide was upgraded with an electric start but the big change was in 1966 when the Panhead gave way to the new “Shovelhead”. It had an aluminum head with a different-shaped combustion chamber and rocker arms attached to the rocker cover instead of to the head itself. By 1969 the factory “King of the Highway” package included a removable batwing fairing on the handlebars, hard saddlebags and a top case at the rear. 1970 was the year that AMF took control of Harley-Davidson and significant changes were made to the FLH which included relocating the ignition inside the gear case cover and the generator was replaced with an alternator inside the primary case. In 1972 a front disc brake was added. When it was brand new this particular example was optioned with the “King of the Highway” package in addition to a Harley stereo pod with stereo and speakers. Other than the wear items this bike is all original. Not only that but it is a 2 owner bike that the current owner purchased in 1985 and has an incredibly low 20,404 miles. The second owner purchased it with just over 19,000 original miles and has barely ridden it since. It was recently serviced and runs incredibly well. Everything is working as it should and it is need of nothing but a new home. If you’d like that to be your home we suggest reaching out right away!
