Harley-Davidson FL Hydra-Glide review

The Harley-Davidson FL Hydra-Glide proved a major step for Big-Twin engines, when the old hand-shift/foot-clutch arrangement was superseded by a modern foot shift and hand clutch. However, the old setup was still optionally available - and would remain so until the mid-1970s - as it was still preferred by some riders and police departments. New Big Twin features introduced in the 1955 Harley-Davidson FL HydraGlide included revised cast tank badges boasting a prominent V in the background, along with a similar badge on the front fender with 1955 stamped into it.

Also, the existing FL Hydra Glide was joined by a performance-oriented FLH with higher compression, hotter cams, and polished ports that resulted in about 10 percent more power. Standard equipment included a Jubilee air trumpet, and a host of optional accessories were available; those fitted to our featured model include body-colored hand grips, chrome luggage rack, chrome engine guard, Buddy Seat with chrome grab rail, chrome fender dressing, and other chrome touches. More specs and user manual of Davidson FL Hydra you can see in next overview.
