About Electra Glides
While not quite an airy condominium on wheels, Electra Glides have a deserved reputation as the most luxurious touring bikes on the market. The Harley-Davidson Electra Glide started life as a simple, large-framed bike in 1941. The FL series of touring bikes became known as Hydra-Glide bikes in 1949, as they were the first production bikes with hydraulically damped forks. When a pair of suspension units were added in 1958, the Hydra-Glide became the Duo-Glide, and seven years later the Electra Glide was born. The final name change came thanks to the introduction of an electric starter in 1965, and Electra Glides continue this tradition of innovation today. With buckhorn handlebars, an extended tailpiece, an easily identified front fairing, and a wide luxurious seat, the Electra Glide is loved by touring enthusiasts for its comfort, carrying capacity, and charisma. In 1993, the Electra Glide Sport was introduced, featuring increased saddlebag capacity and a new streamlined appearance.
