"So the Low Rider went into the record books as benchmark machine, a thumping success in a market that had begun to decline in terms of overall sales for Milwaukee. The FXS became a beacon of hope, just as the AMF partnership was going sour and the future of the Harley-Davidson Company was a dubious prospect." - Tod Rafferty, The Complete Harley-Davidson Encyclopedia.

With an 80 cubic inch 'Shovelhead' V-Twin engine, and four-speed transmission. Equipped with Cobra style exhaust, and S&S Super E carburetor, black paint with orange lettering, aftermarket leather seat and fork bag. Appears to have aftermarket pegs and handlebar.

From the Estate of Glenn (Big Dog) Marshall Redmond Jr. Greensboro, North Carolina.

He was an all star kicker at NE Guilford High School who never missed a field goal, musician, trophied pool player, fisherman, and father. A 29 time winner of The Big Dog Shootout at Piedmont Dragway in Julian, North Carolina. A race car owner and driver, his cars were well known regionally. Stories tell that his twin turbo Buick Grand National was finally banned from racing at Piedmont, as he couldn't be beaten. This led to further twin turbo bans. He was known to lift the wheels of his cars during starts and was nicknamed Superman, because he made his cars fly. His other race cars included several Buick Grand Nationals, a 63' Split Window Corvette in Superman livery, and a Camaro he called the Strawberry Rocket. He collected other cars and motorcycles, some of which are presented here.

Very low mileage example; in wonderful condition; chrome is good, paint is great; came out of long term storage, and started with minimal assistance.

With a two-sided fuel tank; the crossover supply from the right side clogged; interior of both tanks with some minor scaling; petcock leaks when turned in the off position (new replacement is on order); rear brakes are soft; tires are dated; older battery tested okay.
