– 2001 Harley-Davidson FXDL Dyna Low Rider

A mere 25.2 inches off the ground, Dyna LOW RIDER® is now the lowest Harley® in the line. The raked 32-degree front end, new pull-back riser and low-rise handlebar, newly slammed suspension and new low-slung custom seat are all features that help define the LOW RIDER’s boulevard look. The isolation-mounted Twin Cam 88™ engine offers plenty of torque. Top it all off with a laced wheel option and plenty of eye-catching color options and it’s no wonder the Dyna LOW RIDER has been one of the best-known names in motorcycling for more than 20 years.

Its long looks, low stance, and easy-reach handlebar and foot controls will make the LOW RIDER a very popular choice for custom enthusiasts of all sizes…regardless of inseam.
