Lot Details
1987 Harley-Davidson FXR 1340
Frame no. 1HD1EGL17HY119467
Engine no. EGLH117467
If the 1984 introduction of the Evolution V-twin saved a struggling Harley-Davidson from bankruptcy – and thanks to its quality control, oil-tightness and reliability that's an easy argument to make – then it was the Evo-powered FXR which showed doubters that Harley could indeed build a real rider's motorcycle. Key component in that mission statement was the engine's rubber mounts, which isolated rider and passenger from the worst of the 1340cc engine's shakes. Also upping the bike's rideability were cast wheels and dual front disc brakes, while a quality fork and raised rear suspension gave more than adequate cornering clearance.

This 1987 FXR was owned from new by Larry Lattin and remains largely as purchased by him with the addition of an S&S "Shorty" carb and air cleaner.
