1974 Harley-Davidson FLH
1974 Harley Davidson FLH
The Harley-Davidson FLH motorcycle, manufactured by the Milwaukee-based Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Company, originated in 1949 as the Hydra-Glide touring model, so named for its hydraulically damped telescopic forks. Since the introduction of the Hydra-Glide, the Duo-Glide and Electra-Glide models also were produced and carry the FLH designation. The FLH motorcycles continue in 2009 as Electra-Glides.
This consignment was bought at an estate sale in 2006 where it had 1,179 original miles on it. Over the next 12 years the consigner rode it occasionally, where he managed to eek out another 437 miles trying to preserve its survivor status. Despite its light usage, it receives regular servicing, and the bike runs great.
Equipped with a 1200 CC V2 Four-stroke engine with 58 HP, this Overhead Valve Air cooled motor can cruise all day. Affectionately known as the shovel head, it mates with a 4-speed transmission and puts varying power to the rear wheel via chain drive.
With very simple construction, this black trimmed bike has 2 hard saddlebags attached to the rear, and a windshield to the front. Mostly in excellent condition, there is an area on the large saddle seat that is coming apart at the seam. Also, the back bolster seems to have some staining on it and a chrome trim piece across the windscreen has some corrosion.
Disc brakes are seen in front and back, as well as the FLH forks in front.
Overall a very nice example, and low miles, plus well maintained!
