    Correct. And your book also shows things like a heel Toe Shifter, Luggage Carrier, Engine guards, Windshield for an XLCH that did not come on production bikes but were accessory's.

    Yes, boat tail came stock on Dad's '72 Superglide too. It was broken when Dad and a dunebuggy met in the wrong spot.

    The Boat Tail was not available on the 1972 models. But I am sure the dealers had a lot of take offs layin' around that they could install if the customer wanted it.

    Again, we have to agree to disagree. This is Dad's '72 FX. He put it together out of the crate having bought it for $1700 from a dealer going out of business. Pat sold it for him on ebay, and sold the seat separate since it was cracked. I think the same bike is posted in the IMBODEN'S BIKES thread.

    You are not disagreeing with me. You are disagreeing with Harley-Davidson. One question. Where was the master cylinder located?

    Ya know, I don't remember!! Perhaps Pat does since he got up close with it before selling it on ebay. Seems like it only went for around 5500 or so. I'll look and see if I have a shot of that side of the machine.
    Nope, no pics of that side of the bike. Have to wait and see if Pat has any.

    The 1971 FX had the master cylinder in front of the engine. The 1972 was behind the engine. Other than the master cylinder and boat tail they are the same.

    The master cylinder on this one was behind the engine. I had to do quite a cleaning job on the whole bike. My grandfather dosn't bother with wash jobs. He still hasn't washed his 06' superglide.

    My husband is putting together one of these bikes. He has odds and ends for it, but would like a bike to start with. Not a sportster. He wants a Superglide FX. It has been a couple of years since your last comment on this. Do you still have the bikes?
