Harley-Davidson has earned a reputation as the preeminent motorcycle for those looking to scratch their itch for customization. And for those riders who want a head start on building their dream custom motorcycle, the Dyna Super Glide Custom model is an ideal choice.

This stylish performer’s long, low profile fender is enhanced by a low-slung, two-up ribbed seat that, together with a stainless steel mini pull-back handlebar, creates a lean look on the front end. The Dyna Super Glide Custom also features a sport wrap-around rear fender with painted supports, a chrome low-profile tank console with an electronic speedometer, and a full set of Chrome Steel Laced wheels.

Inside all the chrome and steel awesomeness, the Dyna Super Glide Custom is powered by a 1584 cc Twin Cam 96 engine that’s perfectly suited to rumble along any surface while shifting smoothly with the 6-speed cruise drive gearbox, creating a ride that not only emphasizes styling substance, but also has the meat and power worthy of the Harley-Davidson name.

For anybody that’s looking into scoring a Harley-Davidson in the near future, the Dyna Super Glide Custom’s combination of customizable aesthetics and impressive powertrain performance makes it an ideal choice. After all, there’s a reason why this bike is so popular amongst hardcore riders the world over.

It’s been tried and proven to be the real deal.

Quotes

Motor Cycle USA----"The Harley-Davidson Dyna Super Glide Custom has a long, low profile that rumbles with the Twin Cam 96 engine that shifts smoothly with the 6-speed cruise drive gearbox. Customizing this sleek beast is easy with the optional Harley-Davidson Smart Security System, chrome aluminum profile laced wheels, and the optional original equipment color paint program."

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
