Harley Dyna - The Beginning
The Harley Davidson Dyna range was first introduced in 1991 and the first of the Harley Davidson Dyna models was the FXDB Sturgis which was built to replace the previous FXR. With improved performance and additional features such as the vibration resistant engine mounting system, this classic cruiser has extra custom styling. In 1992 the Sturgis was succeeded by the FXDB Daytona (limited edition) and the FXDC Dyna Glide custom.
Dyna Harley - Acronyms
The Harley Davidson Dyna range can be identified by the letters FXD. The F represents the big twin engine, the X represents the small diameter telescopic forks (similar to those on the Sportster model) and the D represents the Dyna chassis. Further letters signify the model, such as FXDSG for the Dyna Super Glide and FXDWG for the Dyna Wide Glide. They can also be set apart from the Harley Davidson softails by coil-cover suspension that connects the swing-arm to the frame.
Harley Davidson Dyna - Family Developments
From 2006, the Harley Davidson Dyna bikes were given a six speed cruise transmission and a reformed frame. This year also saw the release of five new Dyna models (Super Glide, Super Glide Custom, Street Bob, Low Rider and Wide Glide). In 2008 the Dyna Fat Bob was added to the line up which included a new exhaust (2-1-2) and twin headlamps. This Harley Davidson Dyna model is a large, comfortable and confident ride with street presence. It has 16 inch cast aluminium wheels, chrome covered coil over the rear shocks and the engine is black and polished.
Harley Davidson Dyna - Success
The Harley Davidson Dyna range presently include a rubbed mounted twin cam engine, an exposed battery and rear suspension, a five gallon tank, hollow axels and the six speed transmission as mentioned above. This beast of a machine can be described as rugged and untamed and will stand out in a crowd. The large engine offers real power but with a smooth and stable ride. With its looks, power and classic roughness the Harley Davidson Dyna range truly has played an integral part in the company’s success.
