– 2006 Harley-Davidson FXDBI Dyna Street Bob
This one might take you back to the middle of the century when riders looking for a little extra speed and a unique custom look on a Harley® started stripping off the shiny parts. Check out the raked front end, solo seat and Black Denim paint option. Now get ready to put two fists in the wind, courtesy of factory ape hangers framing the road ahead. The emblem on the Fat Bob™ tank looks like it was carved from a block of solid metal. Laced wheels. Black powder-coated, polished Twin Cam 88® powertrain. And the new 6-speed Cruise Drive™ transmission via mid-mount controls. Kick it into gear and you’re riding clean and pure. It’s just what the open road calls for.
FXDBI Dyna Street Bob™ Model Overview
The new FXDBI Street Bob takes minimalist styling to a new extreme. Inspired by the post-World War II “bobber” movement, the Street Bob discards any component not required by law … a passenger seat and pegs, for example. A solo seat sets the tone for a motorcycle designed for the individualist. Seat height is just 25.8 inches. Mini ape-hanger handlebars, the classic Fat Bob fuel tank, a new wrap-around rear fender and steel laced wheels complete a profile that will stand out in the cruiser crowd. A new wrinkle-black finish is applied to the battery box, console and belt guard. Four color choices include new Black Denim, a flat-black finish.

10 The FXDBI Street Bob™ and VRSCD Night Rod™ motorcycles are the only 2006 models
finished in Black Denim. This finish has qualities which differ from high gloss finishes
on all other Harley-Davidson® motorcycles. Like denim fabric, Black Denim paint will
burnish or mar with age and use, thus adding character and personality to the finish of the
motorcycle. If scratched, the color coat of paint does nick/scuff and these marks cannot be
rubbed out. If polished, the finish will become glossier and less flat (or matte) over time.
Please see your owner’s manual for details on the finish and its care.

12 Inspections of certain systems and components are required at 2,500 mile (4,000 km) intervals.
