2004 Harley-Davidson FLHT/I Electra Glide Standard

FLHT/I Electra Glide® Standard Model Overview
The Electra Glide® Standard continues to appeal to the no-nonsense, long-distance rider as well as the cutting-edge customizer. The Twin Cam 88® engine is isolationmounted into a frame with air-adjustable rear suspension. There is an effective and stylish fork-mounted “Bat Wing” fairing, fuel gauge and voltmeter instrumentation, and spacious, weatherproof hard saddlebags. Also, the new chassis introduced in 2002 features a cartridge-type left front fork, strengthened swingarm and improved rear air-shocks for superior ride quality. Without question, the FLHT is by far the most affordable Touring model and comes ready for the long haul, or ready for one-of-a kind customization.
