38892 people view/read news about 2014 models...

I had a Fatboy CVO...was the most beautiful bike, color wise. Bought it used. previous owner had installed more and more chrome accessories. Bike was admire by anyone that liked bikes or not..just because of the colors combo...
but...

the riding...

the seat killed me.

I changed 3 seats looking for comfort...never reached a comfortable riding position. Couldn't ride the bike more than 30 mins. Many of my friends rode the bike and had no problems. So, it was me. I sold the bike. All in all, I lost $800 after 3 years of ownership...not a bad deal. Now, I am waiting for a CVO BO.

I have spent lots of times and research investigating how to convert a non-cvo into a cvo...well, I gave up. It is too expensive to get the right colors or buy the tins from H-D...then the 110 and rims etc etc...
While I am waiting for my CVO BO, I decided to bring my SG as close as possible to the beauty of a CVO SG...had looked to buy a used CVO SG but they cost more than a new one...so, I am spending some $$ in stuff that will make me happy with my SG...and when I get ready to trade in ...let's see how much it will set me back...

The SE designation on top of the CVO models started with the 2000 Road Glides.  So the CVOs that aren't also called SE were the FXRs.  Neither of the FXR models in 1999 nor the FXR4 in 2000 had "Screamin' Eagle" in their advertised names nor SE in their nomenclature.

Doesn't this list include the FXDWG2/3/4?

Well my understanding is that the model, or more accurately the division in which they are built (or used to be built) is the Custom Vehicle Operations, or CVO. Screamin' Eagle is one of the themes of the CVO that started with the first Gen Road Glides. This, coupled with the fact that the performance upgrades were Screamin' Eagle parts, led to the general acceptance that all CVOs were Screamin' Eagle bikes. This was told to me by someone (I forget who) at the LA Bike show when I commented on the Skulls theme on the Skunks.

But I could be wrong.

Agree w/twolane. The bike designation would have the SE included. FXDWG2’s & 3's, FXR's were not Screamin' Eagles. I believe all bikes with the SE designation were SE's on the basis of the motor work, either 103‘s or 110‘s.

My WG2 had the SE 95 upgrade performed early in it's life by the original owner but that still doesn't get it the SE designation. The heads say Screamin' Eagle, but the title does not.

I don't believe there are any HD's with the SE designation on the name that are not CVO's. Anyone want to dispute that?

103's weren't available until 2003... the prior year SE's (2000 - 2002) had 95 ci motors.

Wasn't the 103 RoadKing the only Screamin' Eagle/CVO bike in '03?  In one color offering also, now that's limited edition.  ;) spyder

I took the factory tour at York PA back in May of this year.  When the lady was talking about the CVOs being built evidently I was shaking my head in agreement or something.  She asked if I had one and I said yes.  She asked what kind and I replied "2010 Screamin Eagle Street Glide"  She told me that the bikes weren't called that anymore and they were now called CVOs.  Just thought her comment was interesting since the model designation was FLHXSE on my bike but oh well... what do I know.   8)
