1977 Harley Davidson 1200FLH Electraglide

Description

Two important events in the lengthy development of Harley’s perennial v-twin occurred in the mid-1960s when the 74ci (1,200cc) FH and FLH Duo-Glide adopted electric starting (1965) and the revised ‘Shovelhead’ engine the following year. Now known as the ‘Electra Glide’ – without question one of the most evocative names in motorcycling history – Harley’s updated cruiser featured a new frame to house the large 12-volt battery and a reshaped primary drive cover to accommodate the electric starter mechanism. H-D was unable to afford the costs of developing an entirely new engine, so made do instead with a revised top end (the ‘Shovelhead’) featuring a larger aluminium version of the Sportster cylinder head, an improvement that liberated a further 5bhp.

 

This example has been the subject to much renovation work in recent years a full re spray of the tank and other panels has been completed and is presented in wonderful condition. Offered with a rare and original king size Harley two tone windshield a pogo seat and sprung floorboards. Offered with a UK V5C registration document and valid mot. An opportunity not to be missed.
