Iconic 1966 Harley-Davidson Electra-Glide

1966 Harley-Davidson FLH Electra-Glide

1966 was the year Harley-Davidson Motor Company introduced the electric starter, hence the name Electra-Glide. The new, more powerful "Shovelhead" engine replaced the venerable Panhead. This new engine earned its nickname because the valve covers look like inverted shovel blades.

Harley-Davidson: big and beefy, loud and proud. It's America on two wheels!
