If you are already familiar with the history of these, and that is one of the reasons why you are looking at this Wide Glide, great, but just in case you aren’t, here are a few facts explaining why this bike is so unique and hard to find.
First of all there were only about 1400 total of these “Switchblade” FXDWG2 Wide Glides built in 2001.
Secondly, they were built only in this super sharp color combo called “Scarlet Red” by Harley.
They were Willie “G”‘ Davidson’s personal creation and the Gold Flames you see on the tank and fenders is 23 Karat hand-laid Gold leafing which is cut out by hand from a sheet of ultra thin Gold Leaf sheets and then hand-applied on the fenders and tank. This process is a very meticulous and time consuming operation.
Also, every one of these bikes was hand built and assembled at Harley Davidson’s facility in York, Pennsylvania. (A completely different facility than where all the other Harleys were built in 2001.)
Harley Davidson states there is in excess of $8000 worth of custom upgrades and unique parts and pieces that went into the creation of these bikes. They had an original MSRP of $22,000 in 2001, but they were mostly pre-sold before they ever hit the Dealer Showrooms. And, MANY Dealers charged $2-3,000 (and sometimes more), over sticker for them because they were in such high demand.
This is your opportunity to own a pristine HD collectable!
