"Dyna Wide Glide"
- 2002 FXDWG -
We moved to Alaska and we couldn't take this gorgeous custom 2002 Harley-Davidson "Dyna Wide Glide" FXDWG with us.
We purchased this bike new in January 2002 and have been lovingly riding, upgrading and maintaining it ever since. Now we are looking for someone to take it from here.
The 2002 Dyna Wide Glide was the very last of the "Big Twins" to be offered without fuel injection. Fuel injection lacks the personality of carburation, the snap, crackle and pop if you will. Fuel injection with its smooth idle and well-timed purr just feels programmed. Nothing feels and sounds quite like a rubber mounted, carbureted, big twin between your legs.
Matched up with a Kuryakyn Hypercharger, Dynojet Thunderslide and Screamin' Eagle II exhaust, WOW! Simple V-Twin perfection! Long live the carburator.
Harley-Davidson knocked it way out of the park with this highly polished, dual nickel chrome plated, forged billet aluminum, triple tree. We added the matching chrome dust covers and chrome fork tubes for a look that is guaranteed to get noticed.
The engraved skull sets the theme for the rest of the bike.
On top of the 14" Buffalo Bars we replaced the painted master cylinder, clutch bracket, switch housings and clamps with chrome ones. No cheapo chrome covers on this bike.
The mini-tach sits beautifully between the beefy ape hangers and brilliant chrome Diamondback braided cables and brake line.
Beautiful, comfortable and practical? You bet! This just might be the most comfortable all-day chopper on the road. Load up the huge leather saddlebags, throw the expandable T-Bag on the rack and ride, ride, ride. For a day or a month, trust me, if it doesn't fit you don't need it.
Ready to ride? Great! Now throw your leg over this hog, drop down deep into your seat, give the throttle a twist and kick your boots up on the forward mounted controls and... Wait, wait, wait, hold on, aren't you forgetting somebody?
On this laid back chopper the passenger is defiantly not an afterthought. Your passenger should love this bike as much as you. And they will when they slide back into the tall, well-cushioned, backrest and put their feet up on the 3-way adjustable Kuryakyn ISO pegs. Sun in your face, wind in your hair. Now your ready to go. Wha hoo!
What's a chrome front end without a chrome back end? Who cares, you'll never have to worry about that. The original painted rear fork was replaced with a gleaming chrome one. We also added a chrome belt guard cover. Although mostly hidden by the saddlebags you and the other Dyna riders will know it's there.
Good-bye zinc plated nuts, bolts and screws you won't find them here. Dazzling chrome socket head screws, bolts and acorn nuts replace the original zinc plated hardware throughout. Not only beautiful but very functional. The socket head screws reduce the number of tools required and make tight spots more accessible.
Is there such a thing as too much chrome? Clearly we don't think so.
After two very disappointing so called tool bags, we custom built this one. Using parts from other tool bags and reinforcing it internally with a stainless steel tray that supports the entire contents. Possibly the only one of its kind, a tool bag that can actually carry tools. This thing could probably support 50 LBS!
In the winter we bring the bike indoors, not in the garage but in the house. During this time we give the bike a thorough cleaning, polishing, inspection and major service to get it ready for the next riding season. Many parts cannot be properly cleaned, polished, inspected or serviced without removing them so having the bike inside for cold months was ideal. A typical seasonal service far exceeded any 20,000 mile service that you might get at the dealership. Trust me on this, you will never get them to polish the parts before they reinstall them.
The overall condition of this bike is excellent (9 out 10). The tires are in great shape, good for the season. The brake pads and discs are like new (replaced about 2000 miles ago). The transmission was completely gone through this winter as part of replacing the transmission sprocket, mainshaft and transmission housing. The transmission and primary housing received new bearings and seals throughout. Read on or click HERE for more about recent service.
Here is a list of upgrades and improvements that we added to the bike. All of these items are included with the purchase of the bike.
