Back when the bobber scene was in full effect, bike makers like Harley-Davidson were churning out one awesome bike after another. But even if those days are long gone, Harley is keeping the spirit alive with a bike like the Dyna FXDB Street Bob.

Stripped down to the bare essentials and as “naked” as the law allows, the Dyna FXDB Street Bob is as pure a cruiser bike as one can get. Ever since it was introduced to the market, the bike has been the personification of an attitude-laden motorcycle that has redefined the way custom bikes are looked at.

In terms of its design, the Dyna FXDB Street Bob is keeping true to its bobber roots, featuring a redesigned solo seat, a chopped rear fender without support covers, a top triple clamp with an integrated riser, a wrinkle-back low-profile tank console with an electronic speedometer, a retro-style LED tail light, a Street Bob air-cleaner trim ring, a stainless steel, internally-wired mini ape-hanger handlebar, a wrinkle-black battery box and belt guard, and Black Steel Laced wheels with Michelin Scorcher tires.

Then, there’s the matter of the powertrain. The Dyna FXDB Street Bob is powered by a rubber-mounted 1584cc Twin Cam 96 V-Twin engine with an Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection (ESPFI), rated at 92 lb/ft of torque, and mated to a six-speed Cruise Drive transmission.

There’s no doubt about what the Harley Davidson Dyna FXDB Street Bob is capable of. What’s important to know about this bike is that despite having lived in an bygone era, the bike still stands tall in today’s market as one of the best cruiser bikes in Harley-Davidson’s fold.

Kirby Garlitos
Automotive Aftermarket Expert -
Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More
