This 1966 Harley-Davidson FLH Electra Glide was acquired in 1967 and has been stored in a friend’s garage since 1994. The bike is equipped with an air-cooled 74ci V-twin paired with a four-speed transmission and finished in black and white. Features include hard saddlebags, a windshield, a buddy seat, an electric starter, a hydraulic rear drum brake, aluminum cylinder heads, and fishtail mufflers. The five-gallon fuel tank is finished in black with white side panels that match the fiberglass saddlebags. A sprung black and white buddy seat is equipped along with a windshield, driving lights, and turn signals. Brightwork includes the luggage rack, engine guard, air cleaner cover, seat trim, saddlebag guards, and fender trim. Painted 16″ wire-spoke wheels wear older whitewall tires. Suspension consists of a telescopic front fork with chrome covers and a rear swingarm mounted with dual shocks. Braking is from drums at both ends, with the rear operated hydraulically. A 120-mph speedometer is located in the dash console and houses a five-digit odometer showing 6k miles. The 74ci V-twin is paired with a four-speed transmission that is shifted by foot and drives the rear wheel via a chain. This first-year Shovelhead featured Power Pac aluminum cylinder heads, electric and kick starters, a 12-volt ignition system, and fishtail mufflers.
