Dub Performance Dyna XR

Harley FXDX Super Glide custom motorcycle
One of the leading lights of the French custom motorcycle scene is Millery-based Fred Duban of Dub Performance, and this tracker-ish creation is his latest bike. It’s based on a 2003 Harley Dyna Super Glide, of all things, but you’d be hard pushed to tell. Fred has heavily modded the engine with a Screamin’ Eagle big-bore cylinder and piston kit, increasing the displacement of Harley’s twin cam from 88 to 95 cubic inches (1550cc). The newly-liberated motor breathes through a Forcewinder intake and Mikuni carburetion; the seat unit and handlebars are proprietary Dub Performance items originally designed for Sportster conversions. The forks are by Ceriani, the exhaust is a Supertrapp, and the slick silver-gray paintjob completes the picture. The 1970s Harley XR-750 look is definitely on the way back, and it’s good to see another sweet-lookin’ example. If you’re tempted, the bike is for sale for €25000—which equates to US$36,000, about the same price as the latest showroom Electra Glide “CVO Ultra Classic” model.
