– 2005 Harley-Davidson Road Glide Classic FLHTC/FLHTCI
The day we built this one, the world officially became a better place. The Electra Glide® Classic was designed on the premise that the long haul shouldn’t have to feel like one. We started with pure Harley-Davidson styling, then added on all the necessities for putting on big miles. Like hard bags and a Tour-Pak® luggage box, 40-watts-per-channel sound with standard CD, big floorboards and a comfort-stitch saddle with passenger backrest. We wanted every inch of the ride to be perfect. So we gave it an air-adjustable suspension, triple-disc brakes, and a fork-mounted batwing fairing complete with all the instruments. In fact, all that’s left is for you to fire up the powerful, reliable EFI or carbureted Twin Cam 88® engine and start taking full advantage of this ever-improving piece of real estate.
