Talk:Harley-Davidson Super Glide

Added pictures from Commons [ edit ]

I added to Variations of the FX Super Glide and to based on pictures I found in Commons .

I don’t see (or can’t any FXR pictures there, though.

It be appreciated if someone could a ’71 FX Super Glide or an FXDI35 35th Anniversary Glide that is either in the domain or under a share-alike That would be perfect for the top of the Respectfully, SamBlob 01:40, 19 2007 (UTC)

The suggestion of the Wide Glide wiki to the Glide page would be adding a Fatboy to the Softtail page. They are both of the same family (DYNA) but are models.Jjohnson731 18:56, 15 August (UTC)

The Super Glide is the of the bikes that use the Dyna The title is used here there is no collective term will include the original FX the FXR bikes, and the FXD bikes, yet exclude the FX As the origin of the line, I figured the Glide would be the best fit for a title. Respectfully, SamBlob 16 August 2007 (UTC)

between Fat Boy and Fat Bob? [ edit ]

I think there is some between the Fat Boy and the Fat Bob classifications. It would be for me if someone could add some about the distinction between two.

For instance, Fat Boy is a Harley-Davidson trademark, but Fat Bob is an unregistered trademark.

First of all, I this section to the bottom of the because this is where new on talk pages go by convention. is also where they go they are started automatically by the new tab at the top of the page. I have not altered any of text beyond moving the section. As far as I know, Fat Bob used to be the of tank used on most using the Big Twin engine.

Sportsters usually used a tank, the Big Twins had a pair of connected by a cover at the top. dates from early (before 1936) when the system was constant-loss and one of the tanks gasoline while the other oil. Since 2007, the Fat Bob has been a model in the Dyna

The Fat Boy, however, has been a model since its introduction in I hope that helps. No (talk ) 16:49, 11 May 2009

Changed explanation for origin of FX [ ]

The former explanation was not cited and was from the explanation of the model’s himself, Willie G. as can be read in the

Thank you for contribution to the article and to the discussion of its I have moved this to the bottom of the page, where new and discussions are supposed to be. I haven’t your text; this may be by comparing this version to the version using the View tab.

Although the statement you appeared not to be cited, the citation at the end of the was for the whole paragraph. I have copied that citation to the top of the paragraph, which it still and added another that the same material. Thanks

We look forward to your contribution. Sincerely, SamBlob ) 00:27, 11 April 2011

Any objection to moving this to the new name, Harley-Davidson Dyna? [ ]

This article is linked to by the article as the main article for the family. It appears to be intended to all Dyna models. The Super is only one of several Dyna so it isn’t quite fair to them all Super Glides. are a few that do fit this categorization:

Dyna Super Glide

Dyna Super Glide (FXDB)

Dyna Super Sport (FXDX)

Dyna Glide T-Sport (FXDXT)

But are many more Dynas have much in common these, and do not have Super model names:

Dyna Bob (FXDB)

Dyna Fat Bob (FXDF)

Low rider (FXDL)


Screamin’ Eagle (FXDSE, FXDSE2)

Dyna Glide (FXDWG)

Does have any objections to such a OldMan (talk ) 22:21, 22 2011 (UTC)

Harley-Davidson is probably acceptable on as far as it goes, but FL seems like a better-named Wouldn’t Harley-Davidson FX be a more name? Grouping them by — W, X, FL, FX, G, K etc. provides the structure, as far as I can tell. —Dennis (talk ) 22:34, 22 July (UTC) The common thread is the Glide.

It began the intermediate in 1971 and went through the FX chassis, the FXR, and different of the Dyna chassis. The problem calling the article Harley-Davidson FX is it would have to include the Softails that are already in Softail.

While this could be the same way FLST Softails are in the FL I figured that starting the original Super Glide show the evolution of the line including the Softails, which really part of that Sincerely, SamBlob (talk ) 23 July 2011 (UTC) I the current name is wrong if it most of the family. I prefer FX, as pointed out this would to mention Softails are excluded but that’s easily handled. Biker (talk ) 07:58, 23 2011 (UTC) Another with centering on FX is that, as of the model year, not all Dynas or Glide derivatives are considered FX the 2012 Dyna Switchback has become the first-ever, fat-front-end FL (termed the FLD). So:

Not all Dynas are Glides

Not all Dynas are FX’es

The company DOES group models together under the Dyna in all its marketing and its website, but NOT to FX/FL/etc.

Many purists the FXR to be not a Dyna, but, unfortunately, the home for it (until it gets its own is under a History heading in an about Dynas. They no build the FXR, so it IS now historical, than a useful, current

Consequently, I think Harley-Davidson is still the best heading, and we should fix up the History section to pay respect to the pre-Dyna FX’s, in for the move. Whatchathink? OldMan ) 14:07, 25 July 2011 I think I am more in favour of this article to Harley-Davidson FX to Harley-Davidson Dyna. As such, I add information on the 2012 FLD Switchback to the FL

Sincerely, SamBlob (talk ) 26 July 2011 (UTC) In of moving Harley-Davidson Super to Harley-Davidson FX. I have mentioned the FLD Dyna Switchback in the Harley-Davidson FL and have prepared a rudimentary for a FX article, which may be seen at FX. Any comments/questions/objections?

Sincerely, SamBlob ) 01:05, 26 July 2011 You are a two-wheeled wiki god —Biker (talk ) 01:29, 26 July (UTC) SamBlob, I disagree breaking down Harley families by model letters. I this was a common practice in the but it is no longer done by the company nor such online resources as database of motorcycles, nor by dealers, nor by the that reviews its bikes.

I think we’d better about it some more and get participants to give feedback either of us moves the article. note that, for a few decades the company has been grouping its by chassis-and-motor combinations. Softails can be FLs and FXs, but they ALL have suspension and counterbalanced (B-series) Dynas can be both FLs and FXs, but ALL have Dyna frames, coil-over rear shocks, and engines.

Touring models are all but not exclusively so: what they all in common is the touring chassis and engine. We should follow the press, the online databases, and THE ITSELF says is the distinction. (talk ) 14:02, 26 July (UTC)
