Very nicely restored 1971 FX Super Glide (Boat Tail). Included is paperwork dating back to 1990 and 2 sets of keys.

I am not a Harley aficionado, in fact this is the first Harley I have ever owned, but have always loved and wanted a 71 super glide.

This particular FX has fresh paint and graphics, new wheels with beautiful upgraded disc brakes for greater stopping power, almost all chrome looks new. Some looks original but nice. New wiring harness, lights, and speedo.

The bike starts nicely after 2-3 kicks, idles, accelerates, stops, and turns nicely. Clutch grabs great. No strange noises or smoking. The engine does not leak a drop, all seals look new.

Points look new, charging system works perfectly, charging system and battery look new.

All lights and buttons work correctly including horn, hi and low beams, kill switch, tail light etc.

Some issues that I noticed, missing the trip knob, 3 small cracks in the seat, it is 50 years old and plastic, they all crack if the bike has been used at all, overall the seat is nice though.

This is a beautiful bike with a very nice resto with some great upgrades, that although may not be original add to the look and drive-ability of the bike, it looks like the front forks, rear swing arm, exhaust and maybe other parts had to be changed to accommodate the disc brakes.
