Low Riders and Dynas
It's the Milwaukee way to create blend bikes which take on their own identity over the years, and these are a case in point. DynaGlides evolved from Low Riders, which evolved from SuperGlides, which in turn evolved when the factory first grafted a Sportster front end on to an ElectraGlide. The very first Low Rider, the FXS, appeared in 1977. At heart it was little more than a FXE SuperGlide, complete with 74-inch Shovelhead engine, yet within four years it had soared to become Harley-Davidson's best-selling non-Sportster model.
In 1980, the FXB Sturgis - essentially a Low Rider with belt drive and extended forks - was added to a growing FX series which now included SuperGlide, Low Rider, WideGlide and Fat Bob models. Despite their popularity, these were the last to receive the Evolution V2 engine, making do with Shovelheads until late in 1984.
Five-speed transmission was added model-by-model throughout 1985-6, but the most significant novelty was the appearance of a new chassis with the limited-edition FXDB Sturgis of 1991. Incorporating a magically effective, new two-point engine-mounting system, this has progressively replaced the old Low Rider frame on all FXD-series models. The family now comprises perhaps the most practical and versatile workhorses in the Harley-Davidson range.
