This Harley-Davidson is offered for sale by the world-famous recording artist and entertainer, Engelbert Humperdinck. Born Arnold George Dorsey in 1936, he began performing in the early 1950s under the name 'Gerry Dorsey', but did not get his big break until his manager suggested he change his name to the more memorable Engelbert Humperdinck, after the 19th Century German composer. The change paid off in 1967 when his version of 'Release Me' topped the UK charts. He followed up that success with 'There Goes My Everything' and 'The Last Waltz', and has remained a fixture of the global pop charts ever since. Now well into his sixth decade as a successful entertainer, Engelbert represented the United Kingdom in the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest with 'Love Will Set You Free'. He continues to record and perform.

The motorcycling world's biggest and most widely recognised brand, Harley-Davidson has been synonymous with rugged, uncompromising individualism for more than one hundred years. Large-capacity v-twins have been Harley's stock-in trade since the Edwardian era, their various incarnations progressing through countless technological developments that continue to this day. Harley-Davidson's big news for the 1990s decade was its introduction of an entirely new frame – the 'Dyna Glide' – that debuted on the revived Sturgis 'low rider' model in 1991. Computer-aided design work underpinned this new chassis, which featured a square-section backbone, forged rather than stamped frame junctions and two (down from four) rubber mounts for the air-cooled Evolution engine.

The second model to benefit from the new Dyna Glide chassis was the limited edition FXDB Daytona, announced in 1991 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Harley gatherings at the famous Daytona 200 race meeting. Basically, similar to the Sturgis, the Daytona boasted twin front disc brakes, a special pearlescent paint finish – a first for H-D – and '50th Anniversary' graphics. Deliveries commenced in 1992, with production limited to just 1,700 examples. Also offered that same year was the closely related FXDC Super Dyna Glide Custom, which would turn out to be another rare one-year-only model.

Currently displaying a total of 2,502 miles on the odometer, this FXDC comes with a copy of its original New York Certificate of Title in the name of one Robert Capolongo. It was first registered to Arnold Dorsey in the UK in 1995. Last run in November 2017 and described as in excellent condition, the machine is offered with shipping paperwork, DVLA correspondence, and V5/V5C registration documents. An exciting opportunity to acquire one of the rarer and more collectible limited-edition Harley-Davidsons of recent years.
