Got a pic you can post? The dilema from you post...84FXRSDG
The FXDG was a limited edition Wide Glide (introduced in 1983) with a solid rear wheel, a set of black shorty duals and a belt drive final. They made 810 that year. This was a solid mount motor BTW.
The FXR series ran from 1982-1984 and included the FXR, FXRS, and FXRT. These were all rubber mount motors with changes to each to give them each their own FX subtitle. And in 1984 MoCo only made the FXRS and FXRT (no FXRSDG mentioned anywhere that I can find).
So if it is rubber mounted it is an FXR series bike. With that said I show no record of a solid rear wheel disc glide with rubber mount motor FX series. Best way to tell what your bike started life as is to decipher the vin #. And you can call HD customer service and they can tell you where the bike was sold from and when it was produced.
So....with all that said what is its worth? If you sell, it is worth what you will let it go for versus what someone is willing to pay for it. In today's market, probably $4500-6500 in very good condition. The market on shovels (and pans) reamins soft. Knucks and pre-war HDs still have manitained their pre-recession values. Folks either like or do not like the rubber mount bikes so the market is narrow which can affect value/worth.
