Production numbers for FXR2, 3, and 4 from HD.
« on: January 17, 2007, 03:02:40 PM »

A while back I wrote a letter to HD asking for correct production numbers, by color, for the FXR2, FXR3 and FXR4.  Though the advertising literature of the day and commonly accepted number today says 900 of each, I had always wondered aboout the color scheme breakdown since I seem to have seen more of one color than the other in each of the three bikes.  Anyway, this should be the final word on just how many of each were built.  Not many Blue FXR3's out there.

Nice job, Red! [smiley=xyxthumbs.gif]  Guess that explains why I've never seen a blue FXR3 in person. :-/

Do you know how many years has to go by before they'll provide this information?

If you don't mind, please PM me or post the address you sent your inquiry to.  I'd like to find out this same information for the SEEGs.  Thanks!

That's a great idea Brian. We should get that for all the CVO's and record it here for each model. Who's the club Historian? Did someone say Roger? ::) Hoist! 8-)

Nice job, Red! [smiley=xyxthumbs.gif]  Guess that explains why I've never seen a blue FXR3 in person. :-/

I've only seen one, myself--it was for sale on consignment back in the same Indy shop in NC where I had earlier bought my FXR2.  That bike only had about 60-something miles on it (not sure exactly but I remember it was freakishly darn near new).  Been kept in somebody's basement in a "bubble" unridden for years.  Later, the owner of the shop told me that it had barely been advertised when a guy in Alabama bought it sight unseen and paid to have it shipped down there.  That was about 3 years ago.

I'm impressed.  No, really.  I thought I was the only one who remembered VIN's of their favorite vehicles of years ago.  I still remember the VIN's for my 1974 Triumph Trident and my 1966 Austin Healey.  I even remember the engine block number for the AH.  I surf ebay and a couple of other brand-specific enthusiast forums now and then looking for either but no luck so far.  Now that I've got "130" in my head for your FXR2 I'll keep an eye out for it, too.
