    Default Is The Duo-Glide a FL or FLH

    I know I know every FLH is a FL, but how did Harley originaly call it? FLH ''Duo-Glide'' or FL''Duo-Glide''. I guess it depends on the motor, but were there still FLs out there in 1958, or were there only FLHs?

    Thanks for your wisdom

    The '58 DuoGlide could be an FLF, FLHF, FL, or FLH. The first two being the footshift models.

    2890 FL and 3148 FLH models were produced in '58.

    Duo-Glide referred to the suspension not the motor type so both FL & FLHs are Duo-Glides that year
