Descended from the FX Super Glide and the precursor of the Dyna platform, the FXR seems to be the Harley most loved among enthusiast builders and customizers on our panel.
Brian Klock of Klock Werks: “The FXR was my first-ever H-D product. It continues to carry a timeless hot-rod style that is still a very functional motorcycle. The frame style itself is just a great stance.”
“The FXR was the best-handling H-D to date,” agrees Bill Bryant of Biltwell, Inc. “It was Eric Buell’s first Harley project. I even like the fact it was killed early, since purists hated it.”
“I am working on restoring Gene Koch’s original 1985 FXR Kustom right now,” Brian Klock told Motorcycle.com. “This is the KWIK silver 1991 we did for [renowned motorcycle photographer Michael] Lichter’s exhibit at Sturgis in 2010.” Note the license plate.”
