    It's bollocks. The original Electra Glide didn't have a fairing, it had a screen.
    These are both 1966 models. The one on the left belonged to Elvis.

    Its a homage to the 1969 Electra Glide, which was available with a batwing fairing.

    I bow to your greater knowledge.
    I'm just biased against batwing fairing. Fugly things they are.


    The first time I saw a HD was in Southport when I was a small boy in the sixties.
    It was just like the pics above and was from another world. Nothing like ihad been seen.
    From then on I always wanted an Electra Glide. Some things just stick.

    In my biased opinion a pre 69 replica would have been much cooler.

    My first was one just like this...kinda...it was the Transatlantic races at Oulton and I was probably about 12 so 76/77. It was purple and I remember staring at it for a long time. Harleys were an incredibly rare sight then.
