– 2001 Harley-Davidson FXD Dyna Super Glide

This bike exists for riders who love a sporty custom ride. Set low in a vibration-damping frame is the Twin Cam 88™ engine, filled to the brim with torque. In 2000, the FXD received a new XR-style flat track handlebar which created a more aggressive stance and performance-minded look and feel. A responsive 28-degree front-end with dual rate springs, Fat Bob tank, center console, top-mount speedometer and stepped, two-up seat are all standard on the Dyna Super Glide®. The Dyna Super Glide® continues to represent the best value in the Big Twin product line, with tremendous opportunity for individual customization and performance upgrades.
