2004 Harley-Davidson FXDL/I Dyna Low Rider

FXDL/I Dyna Low Rider® Model Overview
A mere 25.2 inches off the ground, the Dyna Low Rider® model is the lowest Harley-Davidson® motorcycle in the line. The raked 32-degree front end, pull-back riser and low-rise handlebar, slammed suspension and low-slung custom seat are all features that help define the boulevard look of the Low Rider®. The graphics further define its bad-to-the-bone attitude. Right below the fuel tank is the isolation-mounted Twin Cam 88™ engine with 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 Low Rider® has been one of the best-known names in motorcycling for over 20 years. The Dyna Low Rider® model, with its long looks, low stance, and easy-reach handlebar and foot controls is a very popular choice for custom enthusiasts of all sizes…regardless of inseam.
