The F-series models were 74 cubic inches (1208cc) and basically the E with a larger bore and stroke. Like the E models, the sports model F was named the FL (a nomenclature which remains part of Harley's range to this day). However, production of civilian models was somewhat restricted for a few years due to the switch to war production, and the F was made in only limited numbers until civilian production picked up again in 1945/ 46.

The Harley Davidson FX was Willie G. Davidson's idea to capitalise on the custom/ chopper movement of the sixties. Introduced in 1971, under the new AMF ownership, it was introduced as a half-way house between the Electra Glide and the Sportster. Lighter than the former and heavier than the latter, it was based on the Shovelhead engine, and was intended to be a sports cruiser which could lend itself to the owner's customisation, either with Harley parts, or those of the many aftermarket suppliers that had sprung up. The Low Rider name first appeared in 1977 with the FXS in 1208cc form, and from 1980 it acquired the 1340cc engine. Subsequently, the FXRS Low Rider appeared in 1987, in standard and Sport forms. The Sport version had twin discs, instruments on the handlebar, tank cap in the centre, and a new version of anti-dive air-assisted forks.

This particular Low Rider Sport, was purchased new by the owner in 1988, from F H Warr & Sons Ltd (original bill of sale on file). Following acquisition, the machine was used only sparingly, and spent some time without use altogether. During the early 2000s, the owner MoT'd the machine several times, and had some services (see invoices on file, but covered very few miles. In 2018 he gave the bike to The Motorcycle Restoration Company in Saffron Walden to repaint the cycle parts, replace several parts, re-plate some of the fasteners, and carry out a full service, including a new battery and drive belt. The cost of this work amounted to £4601. 59 (see invoice on file). At this time the mileage on the MoT certificate was 489 miles; on consignment the mileage was 494 miles. The owner has once again had the machine serviced and Mot'd earlier this year (invoice and Mot certificate on file). Reluctantly, the vendor has decided that F952 FGT is now too heavy for his advancing years, and should be passed to a new owner to enjoy.

A rare opportunity to acquire a one owner, virtually unused, Harley Davidson Low Rider Sport, ready to use and enjoy. Documentation comprises a current V5C, current MoT certificate, the aforementioned original bill of sale, old Mot certificates, restoration invoice, service invoices, and miscellaneous other paperwork. The Harley is presently on SORN.
