1992 Harley Davidson FXRT (Sport Glide)

The FXRT or Sport Glide is the touring version of the FXRP (American Police motorcycle). The differences are essentially that the Police radio is replaced by a Radio / Cassette and the Police pursuit pods were strangely replaced by air intake louvers on the fairing that directed air onto the rider; an idea that MUST have come straight from the Gold Wingers suggestion box.

This bike has had massive modification and has been owned by me for all but a few months of its life. The faring has been changed dramatically with the single headlight replaced by two sealed beams and the pursuit pods returned and fitted with yellow sealed beams, the red and blue lights would have been a step too far. The tank has been professionally widened, primarily to fit into the lines of the faring but also providing a much larger capacity.

The paint job and chrome extras have always received favourable comment and the bike has recently been returned to pristine condition with the replacement of the front and rear mudguards and the recovering of the seats and backrest to match the paint job. Sitting on the front mudguard is a chromed brass mascot of pigs making bacon, the envy of all who see this.

The engine is special too with numerous extras resulting in stage 2 tuning: These include but are not limited too; SS carburettor, slash cut exhausts, full screaming eagle electronics, electronics, Andrews camshaft and four pot billet brakes front and back to make sure it stops OK. This engine conversion really makes a difference to the performance which you may also notice on the tyre wear; if you use it.

It also put a bit of a strain on the bikes ability to start easily, that horrible delay between pressing the starter and the engine turning; so in the last few months I have fitted an Odyssey ultimate performance battery and all chrome high power (1600 watts) starter. It spins the engine no problem now, I should have done this years ago with the engine conversion.

The cassette went wrong a couple of years ago and, in the end, I bought a huge box of FXRT bits which included (amongst lots of other stuff) a whole new fairing – I bought all this just for a replacement cassette player; Rock and Roll to the throb of a Harley is just great. This radio is fine but cassette player on this item is currently under repair and therefore not guaranteed. The front suspension is spring and hydraulic with the handlebars acting as the air reservoir: There was the smallest oil leak from the forks which would eventually have lost air pressure, all this has been professionally repaired, all receipts, certificates etc. for the life of the bike are available. 12 months MOT 9 months tax

In addition to this large box containing numerous parts, I also have retained all the items removed during the bike and engine modifications e.g. camshaft, silencers, carburettor, brakes, etc. etc. I am only selling this machine because at age 64 I have to accept that my next bike will likely be the last and I have just bought a Cross Bones that will also require a lot of modification to equal my FXRT: You are going to have to come and see this bike to both appreciate it and be confident that its worth your bid, I can only hope the new owner will look after it as I have – Good luck, I’ll miss this machine.
