What you think? - January 12, 2017, 10:56 AM

So an opportunity has come my way to pick up a 1975 SuperGlide FX. Which is a shovel head, kick start only, big twin. Frame and motor match and it has been pretty much done up with top of the line parts over its lifetime. One owner also. Never thought I would be looking at an HD but I do like this bike. Plus HD is the reason I got into bikes. First ride was on one as a passenger when I was a kid and first street bike I rode was one.

I think what floats your boat and makes you smile is all that matters.

For me? Minus the horns it looks like something I might enjoy taking for a spin but I doubt I'd ever want to ride it for long. For one thing the slouched over riding posture would quickly aggravate my back.


There's bold riders and old riders, but damn few bold old riders.

Horns and square headlight have got to go, other than that it's a good looking bike.

If you're gay.

The kick start only cancels out the gay factor. That is provided the owner can actually kick start it in one try.

Agree on the horns and headlight. That headlight looks like it came off a 1980's junkyard GM car. Either go old school with a teardrop or update it to a pair of stacked LEDs if you plan on actually riding it an night. Better yet, do both by mounting a pair of stacked LEDs in a teardrop housing.

Concur. Horns and light should go.
All else looks good.
I'd do it if the price were right and was looking for a pig sled.

Funny how with HD, most can't really tell if this bike is from 1975 or 2015. Evolutionary styling - at a glacial pace.

Technology wise too...

HD: "whoooooo, we've got fuel injection and rubber mounts, whoooooooooo"

BMW: "welcome to 1975"
