The Dyna Wide-Glide was yet another example of the "retro-tech" philosophy successfully employed by Harley-Davidson in recent years, combining the Seventies Low Rider look with modern handling and sophisticated design. Evolving from the FX Sturgis, the Wide-Glide had directionally-controlled mounting blocks to reduce engine vibration and, when announced in 1993, was the smoothest riding Harley yet. The Wide-Glide was initially powered by the classic 81.6-cid V-twin engine and featured a wide front fork (that gave rise to the name) with a 21-inch wire-spoked front wheel, plus a new Fat Bob fuel tank. With lots of chopper styling touches like the upswept tail, ape hanger bars and raked front forks, the Wide-Glide was easily the best looking of the Dyna Glide family. In 1999, the Wide-Glide was updated with the latest Twin-Cam 88 engine, making the bike even more comfortable to ride. Perfectly encapsulating the American dream on two wheels, the Harley-Davidson FXD Wide-Glide may have plenty of attitude, but is still a cruiser capable of swallowing up the blacktop on long distance touring.
