Post-Sale Update: After 16 bids on eBay, this 1973 Harley-Davidson Electra Glide sold for $9,300.
After HD gave the FL series electric starters in 1965, they renamed the model the Harley-Davidson Electra Glide. Harley added a second disc brake in ’73, but what’s more interesting is what got removed this year – both hand shifters and the kick starter were yanked from the Electra Glide this year.
It featured the Shovelhead engine, which initially displaced 1,208cc and produced 10 percent more horsepower than the classic Panhead. The 74 ci engine produced 60 horsepower and 70 ft-lb of torque through a 4-speed transmission. That’s all well and good, you say, but why the odd post title? Because just a few days ago, Billy Standley was buried “riding” his 1967 Harley-Davidson Electra Glide. If you’re interested, the link has a photo of what the whole setup looked like before it was put into the ground.
This specific Harley-Davidson Electra Glide has just 13K miles and is claimed to be in ‘incredible’ condition. It comes with saddlebags, crash bars, a mini-backrest, and a few other semi-rare parts. You’ll just have to decide if you want to get buried with it or not.
