Post-Listing Update: Despite 29 bids on eBay up to $14,100, this Harley-Davidson FX Super Glide did not meet reserve.

Considered by some to be the first factory custom bike, the Harley-Davidson FX Super Glide was Willie G’s brainchild and an attempt to satisfy the countless H-D enthusiasts that would customize their brand new Harleys.

Harley-Davidson FX Super Glide - Cockpit

Willie decided to build a production bike that offered custom looks – the “FX” title stands for Factory Experimental. Combining parts from the FLH and XL models, you also got buckhorn handlebars and the distinctive boattail fender. It did not sell well. As a ’71, this is a first year model of the FX Super Glide. Sales increased when the rear styling was changed, but I frankly like the way the boattail has aged. Then again, I’ve often been told I have no sense of style!

Harley-Davidson FX Super Glide - Rear

This specific Harley-Davidson FX Super Glide (2C29007H1) was restored by someone with plenty of FX experience. It’s believed to have just 5,500 miles, but the bike was still completely disassembled, the frame was powder coated, and the engine was partially rebuilt. The seller says the only flaw is that the right rear fender strut bolt has stolen some paint from the fender, but the seller includes a tremendous amount of photos for you to verify the condition of this unique bike. This bike has not been started since the restoration, and has sat in the seller recreation room. Here’s your chance to bring it back to life!
