Harley-Davidson Museum® – Holiday Lobby Display
Holiday Lobby Display: 1985 FXWG Wide Glide
Similar to how Santa delivers his presents without ever being seen or heard, this cherry red Wide Glide® motorcycle showed up on the Archives doorstep on a cold December day in 2000. It’s origin is a mystery. The motorcycle, powered by a 1340cc Evolution® engine, arrived with 8,462 miles on the odometer, no explanation and no note revealing its backstory.
Just prior to Thanksgiving this year, the Curatorial staff will install this Wide Glide motorcycle into the H-D Museum lobby along with some cheery advertisements from the 1980s. Ring in the holiday season with this annual tradition that celebrates Harley holidays of yore.
