Also, every one of these bikes were hand build and assembled at Harley Davidson's Custom Vehicle Operations facility in York, Pennsylvania. (A completely different facility than where all the other Harleys were built in 2001.) Harley Davidson states there is in excess of $8000 worth of custom CVO-only upgrades and unique parts and pieces that went into the creation of these bikes. They had an original MSRP of $22,000 in 2001, but they were mostly pre-sold before they ever hit the Dealer Showrooms. And, MANY Dealers charged $2-3,000 (and sometimes more), over sticker for them because they were in such high demand. Consequently, with the dealer fees, taxes, prep fees, transportation and "over sticker surcharges" that many buyers paid, the majority of most original owners had an investment approaching $28,000 in these super nice bikes.
'01 "Switchblade" FXDWG2 Wide Glide CVO
One-owner.., 3,123 ACTUAL miles.., $4000 in upgrades.., Immaculate...!!
This is a ONE-OWNER impeccably cared for hard-to-find "Switchblade" FXDWG2 Wide Glide CVO motorcycle. And.., it has only 3123 ACTUAL miles on it..! If you don't know much about these bikes, the following information will give you some insight into their background, scarcity, uniqueness and the low volume of these special Wide Glides that were manufactured by Harley Davidson. Some of the special features of this bike include: Ostridge Hide Tan Leather Seat and matching Sissy Bar Pad, Lowered Suspension Front and Rear, Lightning Star Wheels, Color Matched and Powdered Coat Frame, and Color Matched Chin Spoiler and Battery Box. There are MULTIPLE other special items including complete Chrome Front End, Chrome Swing Arm, Chrome Billet Belt Drive Sprocket, and Chrome Upper and Lower Belt Guards. The factory CVO list just goes on and on..!
If you are already familiar with the history of these, and that is one of the reasons why you are looking at this Wide Glide, great, but just in case you aren't, here are a few facts explaining why this bike is so unique and hard to find. (ESPECIALLY with the low miles and impeccable condition it is in.) First of all there were only about 1700 total of these CVO "Switchblade" FXDWG2 Wide Glides built in 2001. Secondly, they were built only in this super sharp color combo called "Scarlet Red" by Harley's CVO division. They were Willie "G"'s personal creation and the Gold Flames you see on the tank and fenders is 23 Karat hand-laid Gold leafing which is cut out by hand from a sheet of ultra thin Gold Leaf sheets and then hand-applied on the fenders and tank. (A very meticulous and time consuming undertaking.)
The gentleman that purchased this bike new also spent a significant amount of money on some VERY NICE upgrades to the bike which I believe add a LOT to the way it looks. He removed the original handle bars and added Chubby 1.25 inch 5" Pull Back Internal Wire Drag Bars, a HD Black Face Mini Tach, HD Billet Tach Mounting Bracket, HD Billet Chrome Cable Kit, HD Bullet Style Chrome Turn Signal Lens Kit, (2) HD Billet Storage Tube Kits, Billet Clutch Cable Adjuster Kit, and Billet Chrome Headlamp Shell.
He also added the HD Flame Collection Derby Cover, Inspection Cover, Gas Cap, Front Caliper Insert, Rear Caliper Insert, and numerous Chrome Billet Covers and accessories in various places on the bike.
