2012 HARLEY FXDC Super Glide Custom



2012 FXDC DYNA SUPER GLIDE CUSTOM Vivid Black With Pinstripe. Rubber-mounted Twin Cam 96™ V-Twin engine with Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection (ESPFI), rated at 92 ft. lbs. of torque and 6-speed Cruise Drive® transmission. For riders who want a head start on building their dream custom motorcycle or for those who just want a little more straight from the showroom floor, the Dyna® Super Glide® Custom model may be the perfect bike. This stylish performer’s long, low profile is enhanced by a low-slung, two-up ribbed seat. Steel Laced wheels and the Fat Bob® fuel tank add to the classic look. A mini pull-back handlebar creates a clean look for the front end, which draws attention to the tank-mounted speedometer/ignition console. With a nimble frame, Twin Cam 96™ engine and smooth-shifting 6-Speed Cruise Drive® gearbox, the Dyna® Super Glide® Custom is just plain fun to ride.
