1973 - FLH Electra "Rhinestone" Glide
In 1965 Harley introduced the Electra-Glide which replaced the Duo-Glide. This particular Electra-Glide, referred to as the Rhinestone-Glide, is believed to be the most highly decorated custom Harley in existence. Purchased in 1973 by a couple in Northampton, PA, the owners began decorating the bike, and over time, ultimately added $3,000 worth of red, white and blue rhinestone, along with more than 200 lights. The couple installed so many lights that an extra alternator was required to handle the added electrical load. At the time of purchase the stock bike weighed 722 pounds, but it is now estimated to weigh more than 800 thanks to their handiwork.
