Default Dyna's

With the new design Fat bobs, Soft tails for 2018 onward and discontinued Dyna line, will any parts swap out to the old Dyna's? I found a seat for sale I like but its a 2018 factory off a Fat bob. Will it fit my 2013 Super glide?? I hope this is the right area to pist this question. I'm new and navigating to see where to ask proper questions for proper threads.

The new softails are a completely new frame design. I would be shocked if seats would swap to the older bikes.

Softail seats are generally dished deeper than swingarm seats. If you got it to fit at all, it would probably have a big crease in it.

Go on the HD website and look for a seat for your ride, then see what else it fits. New softails are completely different.

Default Dyna seat

Hey man. I got an extra seat I just took off my 16 wide glide today. It comes with the passenger pillion. All the pics are with the seat I just took off.

Default Newer bikes

anyone else think the newer bikes are kinda eh? Besides the M8, The big fat front tire seems to be a thing. I know, bigger tire makes a better ride. I like the 21” rim. What do you guys like/prefer?

The big fat front tire on big inch Harleys was always a thing until the chopper-inspired Superglide came along. The styling of the Heritage is mostly based on the Panheads, hence the "Heritage" name.

Default Preference

I guess its preference. I prefer the looks of the chopper style. I think ppl are afraid of a skinny front wheel. The looks of the newer bikes arent for me. Coulda got a new one..got the wide glide instead. Harley got rid of all the good bikes in my opinion. Brought back the lowrider I guess.

Default Easy rider

pretty sure easyrider featured a panhead. Big front tires are Gulf Alpha Yankee—OUT!
