    RARE!! 1984 Harley Davidson Electra-glide Special Edition FLHX, with the 1340 Shovel head.. Posted as rare because I've had people argue that a 1984 FLH-X does not exist. One person in particular thinks that his FL what ever is the same thing.

    I was was very blessed that this bike just sort of just fell into my hands and I cherish it very much. I've been unable to find another as complete as her AND with all the bells and whistles... fact is, there are some specific items that I've not been able to find anywhere (I am purposely not posting pics certain views / items).

    All research I've done, shows there were only 4 67 of these made (one reference to 496). If anyone has definitive proof one way or the other I would LOVE to see it and obtain a copy. The Mistress is #454, putting it pretty close to the last one of its kind made.

    All VIN searches and many parts sites have the FLHX listed.

    I bought this in June of 2011 with only 22K miles, apparently the original owner rode it for a while then parked it in his living room for a decade and a half.

    The bike is in Beautiful condition with all of the original equipment - that is to say that I am not aware of anything missing.
    As can be seen in the pictures, most of the tour package was removed as I mostly ride short distances to work and such - besides, it looks really cool parked next to all of the 'Newer' bikes. I now live in New Mexico and will be able to ride every day as I have since I first purchased her.

    The only real work I've done is replacing most plastic and rubber parts - such as the grips, electrical components with plastic, and some cables - Toad, it is due to dry rot in the South Western sun.... Google "Dry Rot" or "Effects of the sun over a long period of time".

    My wife gave her the name "Mistress" , I suppose that is self explanatory. How ever, my Mistress has started the tradition of giving every passenger she likes - a kiss... they all look the same, a small round area on the lower leg that puffs up and leaves a nice dark tanned spot.

    There is NO WAY I will ever sell her! I would rather ride a bike with out all the stuff that can break - like computers and digital what ever stuff. I like the idea that if I was to get a short I could put some bubble gum on it and still ride home. Imagine one of today's bikes and all the stuff that will need replacing in 26 years - oh the cost - YIKES.

    I hope this information helps someone, and if YOU have a bike such as this, I would hope to see it!!!! Please post a link....... Ride well, ride safe.

    MAY 22, 2012 !!!! UPDATE -- PRODUCTION NUMBERS !!!!!!
    I have found some interesting information at two different sites:
    HD tidbits from 1984:
    FLHX Last Edition Shovel-head Electra Glide offered in Black or White, with Gold stripes and Red pin-striping, with wire wheels and full touring equipment first year
    FLHX - S,4 speed, (1,258) 'Electra Glide' Special Edition

    At: the following is found.
    Production Totals
    Model FLHX:791
    Model FLHX: 467

    There seems to be a great consensus that there were more “white” bikes produced than the Black. So when I add up the numbers, I suspect there were a total of 791 in white and 467 in black giving a grand total of 1,258. I will not step out on a limb and present this as fact…. Just that these two sites appear very credible.

    Toad, I was unable to find any model produced in 1984 that equated to 920. I am wondering about the authenticity of your letter. Read my post below.

    29 June 2012 Update: Stator replacement is a major over-haul
    Soon after purchasing my Mistress a year ago, it began having a charging issue and blowing the regulator. Due to time and $$ I was not able to address the problem until recently. I ended up needing to replace the Stator and while I was at it, just about everything else associated with making such a repair. I discovered that the previous owner had cut a wire (not shown on modern wiring diagrams of the Clymer manual) to prevent the Headlight from coming on when the ignition switch is in position 3. This one little pigtail wire led to the complete failure of the charging system. The wire was an easy fix, but was the cause of a very expensive and time consuming rebuild of the rest of the system. The flip side is that I also up-dated and upgraded a bunch of things, such as rebuilding the carburetor, re-blacked the motor, and a whole plethora of little things. Now she rides like new. Having never owned a bike before now, I learned a lot! Stator repair on this model is one of the most difficult processes. If you have any questions, please ask, I took lots of pictures to include a necessary “clutch puller” that I had to build for about 15 bucks. ---- Ride well, ride Safe.

    “Patriot Guard Riders”.
    Have you heard of the PGR? It is an organization of persons that show support to our troops in many aspects. Of most significance, the PGR provide escorting for Veteran funeral processions, deploying troops, and troops coming home. I am a proud member of the PGR as I am a fellow veteran. Anyone may join for free. Though it is preferred that a member rides in a procession on a bike with a 3 X 5 American Flag, there are others who are only able to follow along in a truck or car with a flag attached to the window. It is the “Spirit” of show respect and appreciation to our troops and veterans who have put their lives on the line to give idiots the freedom to be stupid and the rest of us to live free. Please visit the web site for the Patriot Guard and show your support for our troops.

    Just a little more history? Check out the pic of an original #1 patch I recently purchased.
    Please help me find FLHX specific items. --- Thank you.

      Hey,doesn't anybody but me have paperwork of how many were produced? I've got a letter from president Charles K. Thompson stating there were 920 of this special edition made. Vivid black and birch white. Let me know
    2. toad, 11 years ago
      hey also i would like to know where in the vin# is the # of bike?
    3. twlmann twlmann, 11 years ago
      Folks, I feel it is my duty to warn you of a person by the ID of “Toad”. At first he seemed to be credible and knowledgeable. He presented information that appeared as such. Then one day, for un-identified reasons, he became very nasty. So, I am posting a reply to him by way of additional information. The site administrators deleted some of his comments and so did I.

      Mr. “TOAD” stated that he had a letter from Harley-Davidson President, Charlie Thompson, stating that 920 FLHX bikes were produced in 1984 . I found information to the contrary and posted the link for him to look at for himself. That is when he went ballistic. Since then I’ve found even more evidence. I am now suspecting that the bike he says he has, he may not have.

      The following are from web-sites that conflict with TOAD’s “Letter"
      ARTICLE: The Harley Davidson factory isn't sure how many were produced [1984 FLHX], I have heard anywhere from about 350 to just over 1200 with the common answer being 467 some in black and gold the most common is white and gold and yes I own one(since new) [I am not sure who is the author].

      Toad, this just keeps getting better:
      "A long-time Harley-Davidson employee, Charlie Thompson was a personable man, well-liked throughout the motorcycle industry. He served as president and CEO of the restructured company until his health failed in 1982."
      Oh BURN !!! Your letter could NOT be from Mr. Thompson; referring to something produced in 1984... Check it out here:

      Here is the site for VIN decoding - Check if you don’t know [TOAD] exactly what you have:

      22 May 2012. Just completed moving to NM.... For my final time leaving my old home, I was able to ride the Mistress..... Of course I had to stop every 150 miles to "re-round" my bumm, but what a wonderful ride of nearly 800 miles not a problem one.
    6. toad, 10 years ago
      Hey it's me again, not been on my computer lately. I looked up my vin# and it does come up as a FLHX. I just got on so I will check a few other things out and get back to you.

    8. twlmann twlmann, 10 years ago
      Toad, I am glad (yes actually) to see you back. I recently completed a major electrical over-haul that you or other FLH owners may find helpful (See 29 June 2012 updates above).
      Being that this is my first-ever Harley that I've owned or worked on - it was an interesting learning experience.
    9. h84specialed, 10 years ago
      I have a white 84 flhx. you can contact harley davidson directly with you're vin# and they will give you a definite answer as to how many of your color flhx's were built. the # is 1-800-258-2464. This is their archival department. Acording to H-D there were only 179 birch white modes made.
    10. ShovelFan ShovelFan, 8 years ago
      Thanks Shovelinon, I had posted the bike to eBay and discovered a few days in that the title said FHX. There has been great conversation going back and fourth about the bike thanks to eBay but I have been reconsidering hanging on to it due to its rarity.
    11. Shovelinon, 8 years ago
      If you have room in the garage hang on to it, especially if you still ride it now and then. The bikes bring less today than they did a few years back so why not just enjoy it -- pride of ownership...and you're not likely to see another one like it on the road. Every time I think about selling mine I decide against it. I don't consider it an investment, it's just become part of the family over the years.
    12. Shovel, 8 years ago
      I have an FLHX with vin number 1HD1AEK33EY016741 in black. Complete original bike with all the bits and pieces. It even has a cigarette lighter in the aluminium centre steering cover. Harm - [Fryslan] Netherlands

    15. Cabover Cabover, 8 years ago
      I was given a white bike this week with the same vin # with the exception of 22 in 8&9 position and a production # starting with 19K, it's rough but only has 13k miles, glad I found you guys
    16. Cabover Cabover, 8 years ago
      My best friend had to make room for a new ride , I've been trying to buy it for a couple of years, only missing one of the saddle bag lids if anybody knows where I can find one
    17. Meatstick, 8 years ago
      I just posted pic of my 83/84 flh, I don't believe it is a flhx just a flh. But I think they have a lot in common.
    18. lobo, 8 years ago
      I have an early model (dry clutch) 84 FLHX I bought new back in 1984. These bikes are identical to the regular production FLH's except for the the paint schemes & graphics. You could specify wire or alloy wheels with an FLH, but the FLHX's came off the line with wire wheels only. Even rarer than the FLHX's are the 1984 FLHS models. The FLHX paint work was done offsite by Calibre Custom Paint & shipped to York PA final production. York has (or had at the time) an in house paint shop, but overflow and special edition paint was farmed out as needed when York Paint shop was at capacity. That was the case in 1984 with the FLHX. I have a photo of the York Facility shop floor with 4 or 5 FLHX's ready for crating, parked in a row side by side, all missing their fuel tanks!
    19. Cabover Cabover, 8 years ago
      A guy gave me page 97 out Baggers march 2015 magazine showing a 84 shovel head referring to special edition king of the highway, which mine has a plate saying this with a dot reflector on the lid of the one bag top I have and my fender says special edition, the article does say 444 of each color were produced. Doesn't say were those totals came from
    20. Rustfarm Rustfarm, 8 years ago
      Cabover , can you link pictures of these items on your bike? I think I know where one of these bikes is and I have expressed interest in it. It has been carefully stored for over twenty years and not ridden since
    21. lobo, 8 years ago
      My FLHX (and all others I have seen) upper saddle bag lid covers have the standard DOT red reflector with an aluminum plate red graphic reading "King of the Highway" as seen in the photo on the upper right of this page. This was standard to all FLH's that year. The lower saddle bags have a unique gold decal running across the bag with the words "Special Edition Electra Glide"
    22. lobo, 8 years ago
      Sadly, Millers Custom HD in Daytona is gone. They had the largest collection of NOS Harley graphics & trim pieces I have ever seen. I do have an old parts book. The King of the Highway name plate was available seperately from the mounting trim piece. If you need the part # for that piece, I will get the book & look it up. That piece is thin aluminum with a peel off sticky backing. Sunlight would dry up the adhesive backing as well as wash out the red hue applied over the piece. The good news is that this name plate was used for many years, the red one being the most popular. They are out their!
    23. Rustfarm Rustfarm, 8 years ago
      Try this guy in Bloomsburg Pennsylvania, Bills Custom Cycles. This guy is a good source for obsolete HD parts, also try NOS Parts in Wellington , Ohio, another good source, good luck!

      Is it possible Some comments from yesterday have been removed
    25. lobo, 8 years ago
      yes Cabover...I think the mods may have removed a few of my comments, not sure why, but I do see the new comments in my e-mail even if they do not appear any event, getting back to frame serial #'s, the AE stamping is critical as that is the designation reserved for the FLHX Special Editions
    26. twlmann twlmann, 8 years ago
      Yes..... I have been removing non pertinent conversation material as this is not actually a blog site. I wish to retain information others may find useful, while removing unnecessary commentary.
    27. Cabover Cabover, 8 years ago
      I went to HD dealership today with the vin #, they were not really familar with what I was telling them I had, after some discussion the level of interest grew, All very helpful
    28. lobo, 8 years ago
      cabover, I can E-Mail you a copy of the VIN decoding sheet from the 1984 HD service manual. If you are comfortable posting your e-mail, maybe twlmann will let it go through and then he can delete the posting ASAP. Personally, I would like to stay in touch with fellow FLHX owners like you & twlmann & others, but like twlmann points out, this is not a is an info source. He is 100% correct.
      twlmann, any thoughts?
    29. twlmann twlmann, 8 years ago
      I can do as you request about the e-mail address. I don't mind leaving relevant information for other readers on this site.... I was only tyring to get rid of some minor chit chat.... just to keep the information clean and easier to follow.
    30. twlmann twlmann, 8 years ago
      I got insurance with Progressive... I pay less than $100 per year. I also set the "reimbursement" value I expect if it is totaled out.... Lord willing I'll never need to use insurance. My rates are fairly low due to the zip code and the fact that it would seem every 5th person in the area has a bike....
    31. Cabover Cabover, 8 years ago
      Thanks I got it threw my agent 200 a year ,I was told my state is high, plus a few speeding tickets didn't help my cause any
    32. Cabover Cabover, 8 years ago
      anybody body have engine guard foot peg mount with peg they can share a picture maybe
    33. twlmann twlmann, 8 years ago
      I have the foot pad off of the frame and foot pegs mounted to the Highway bars. I can sent you an e-mail picture if you would like. What is your e-mail address.

      Hello everyone, first time on here for me, I am quite pleased to have found you people. I to own a 1984 FLHX black, bone stock, I purchased mine in the spring of 1985 with 2,500 kilometers, today it has only 28,000 kilometers,that is 17,398 miles for all of my fellow FLHX brothers south of the 49th parallel, yes I'm a canuck, my bike has mostly been parked in my shop for the last decade and a half, though I truely love it, I was very interested in finding the production order # of my bike but am not sure which # of the serial # represents this, it has the AE letters in serial #, any info or guidance would be much appreciated, thanks in advance.
    35. twlmann twlmann, 8 years ago
      Shiftydawg: I am not sure why the link to the VIN decoder site is not working, perhaps they moved. I have seen multiple sites for VIN decoding so I suggest just googling it.
      If you truly have an FLHX it would be awesome to see some Pics of it. Mine that I have posted were from the second owner before he stripped it of all accessories. I have been in the process of rebuilding it and putting it back together. It is a lot of work because so many things are difficult to find - the fellow I bought it from gave me all the parts, but not the nuts and bolts, he also hacked up the wiring pretty bad. But it is coming along nicely. I still ride her when time permits and she is not on the stand being worked on.
    36. shiftydawg, 8 years ago
      Hello twlmann, yes I most certainly do have a FLHX shovel, and I will post some pictures soon, I am on my way to Calgary Alberta, Canada this weekend, my bike has been a bit of a dust collector recently but I am going to dig her out of her corner and clean her up and send some pics, she is a real beauty, I've only seen two other FLHX's in western Canada, one with Alberta plates the day my bros bought my bike new in 1984, and one other one in Regina Saskatchewan, although that bike was not even close to being stock, hopefully I can find the time to dig mine out of her corner, and clean her up for some pics, just wait, this bike is totally complete, everything is there and in beautiful condition.
    37. Cabover Cabover, 8 years ago
      Put my first 1050 miles on since my last post, got a blue lid for the bag gonna order a can of white birch and I put hooks on both to keep from loosing them, thanks to who ever let me in on those 2 items. Have not found an orange king of the highway reflector but have the plate to install it on when I find one. Enjoying the FLHX
    38. FLHXOriginal, 7 years ago
      Hi, I bought a new FLHX in 84, a black one from NC.

      This is what I know.

      At the end of the production run for the FLHX model, which was also the last shovel FLH model, 100 bikes were given the special edition features you have seen above, most obviously the paint/decals.

      There were 50 white ones and 50 black ones. 1 of each color was shipped to dealers in each of the 50 states.

      There is no other way to tell one of the last 100 from the rest of the bikes that are FLHX by VIN, they literally added these features at the end of the run. I suppose if you could find enough owners there could be a pattern to the final numbers where you could find all numbers after xxx are the ones.

      I believe this information was also in an issue of EasyRider at that time, you might find some documentation there.

      I just acquired a 1984 FLHX electra glide 1340 and I was told this bike does not exist. I do not have the paper work on it but I have ran it through millwalky harley davidson and was informed that it is a true FLHX PD-CHP (POLICE DEPARTMENT- CALIFORNIA HIGHWAY PATROL). I am having a hard time finding a starter and fairing and windshield .....any suggestions

    40. twlmann twlmann, 7 years ago
      I have replaced everything you speak of and then some. The best source for parts that I have found is J&P.
      Yes, the FLHX "Does Exist" but is very rare indeed. The information that I have listed above is still the best that I have. In my case, I am third owner and was given the original purchasing paper work from the First owner.
      The dash of my bike also has a (still) working AM/FM, CB, 8 track player. There are some parts though that I have had to custom repair as I not been able to even see them on another bike let alone find replacements. Good luck!
    41. flydotfly, 7 years ago
      Hi everybody, I have a stock FLHX - 1984 with 35000 miles on the clock. The bike is located in Belgium. I've been rebuilding the bike because the bike was repainted etc., etc.; we're now working on the transmission/engine. Happy to share my experiences as indeed finding parts is not easy.
    42. DWFLHX, 6 years ago
      Hello everyone! I too have an 84 FLHX in black. Sorry to brag, ok not really, but it's all original down to the last bolt or at least I have all the original parts for it. I have taken the luggage off as I don't often ride it on long trips. Being a girl it also helps making it a bit lighter for me. I am the second owner, the first being my dad so it's been in my family for it's whole life. Not sure dad intended it to go to his only daughter when he bought it, but hey I'm the one that rides and has worshiped it all these years. It only has 6,600 thousand original miles on it as it went many years just sitting. Now I run it all summer and store it during the winter. It is truly an amazing bike and glad to hear there are others who love them as much as I do. It also has an odd feature of having a police special speedo vs the stock one I've seen on others. Not sure if it was ordered this way or just was an extra one they were trying to use up.
      I do have a question, since all of the paint is still original, I am interested in also storing the faring and running it with just a windshield as I see some of you have. What brand/part are you using if this is the setup you are running? I've found a few that look like they will fit but it's so hard to find parts for these babies!!!! Thanks for any help you can offer.
    43. flydotfly, 6 years ago
      Hi DWFLX,
      that's a great story! The batwing fairing is stock and has been used for a long time(60-84). I see some on ebay but man what are they expensive in the US. If you can't find one for a decent price, I'll sell you one of my spares. The windshield decal is another story. The OEM number is 14093-84 and it's not easy to find but check out: Good luck with bringing your bike further to it's original condition.
    44. Cabover Cabover, 6 years ago
      Been riding the 84flhx as much as we can but last Sunday after traveling 80 miles trouble free , in the last 40 miles, running 55 miles an hour , it stalled - coasted to a stop - started right back up until the next time, any ideas? I would appreciate any help
    45. Cabover Cabover, 6 years ago
      Meant to say it did it 3 times in the last 40 miles
    46. Meatstick, 6 years ago
      I will go with a fuel shortage issue, maybe stuck floats, plugged fuel filter, collapsed fuel line. That's what I would check first before electrical issues, since you say it starts right back up after you stop, letting the fuel to work it's way back into carbs. Electrical issue to me would be...what ever is getting hot would have to cool down much longer than it just starting back up.
    47. Cabover Cabover, 6 years ago
      I never checked the fuel lines. I thought about replacing them when I got the bike but never did thanks
    48. Cabover Cabover, 6 years ago
      Gonna need some parts , lady ran a red light on me!

    50. ShovelGM, 6 years ago
      Alright people there is a lot of good and bad information being put out here on the beloved 1984 FLHX Special Edition Electra Glide. I like some of very few of us,do indeed own one of these motorcycles. I purchased it new in July of 1984. I was drawn in by it's style and uniqueness of it. I did have a choice of colors to chose from. Black or White. I chose the Black version. The original brochure for it states that only 920 were created. Also in the Enthusiast magazine dated Spring of 1984 with an article about the 1984 FLHS stated that 500 of those would be produced and in addition, a total of 1250 FLHX Special Edition Electra Glides will be distributed world-wide;1000 for the US and Canada. Harley Davidson's words not mine. Now with that being stated. I have the following information direct from the Harley Davidson Archives to share with all of us with such an interest in this particular motorcycle.

      Harley Davidson states that "There were approximately 1258 of the FLHX Electra Glide Special manufactured for the 1984 model year". The early models had a dry clutch(about 467 manufactured),with the late models( 1984 1/2) had wet clutch(about 791 produced). Also stated is the following. The 1984 FLHX only came in two colors:Special White and Special Black. Of the 1258, 640 were painted Special White (232 dry clutch & 408 wet), 615 Special Black (235 dry clutch & 380 wet). The remaining were custom painted. Also the letter states that there was one FLHXWSC manufactured for 1984 (an FLHX with a sidecar) it was painted White.
      I hope that this information sheds some light on the various numbers being tossed around on "our beloved 1984 FLHX's" out there. As Harley Davidson stated a total of 1258 of the were produced.
      Sorry for the long statement, but I did want to put some accurate information out there.

      Good to know the facts.... It's a little newer than the Motorcycles I ride....but understand your wanting to set facts straight..... before the age of the internet, I augured for years the 1954 Models were truly the 50th Anniversary, till I was blue in the face....

      Hi folks,
      I'm sitting on a FLHX, too. European import back then, second or third owner here.
      Not sure about the original colors, but mine is two-tone blue with golden pinstripes, "Made in USA"-decal (Eagle) on Batwing and Tourpak.

      Hi all, I also have an FLHX (black)
      I had to change the engine at 150,ooo km when the crank pin spun during a ride to Queensland (I am in Australia). Obviously I kept the original to be rebuilt when I get time.
      Since the transplant (93 S&S) I have done a further 120,000 km. making a total on this bike of 272,000 km.
      Yes I ride it a lot and pull a camper trailer as well.
      These machines were never meant to be left in a shed somewhere. If you have one, ride it.

      Handlebar Ed, I also have a white FLHX, and I also have an original 4 page color brochure, and original letter signed by the president of H D at the time, (Charles E. Thompson) telling about the SE FLHX and how many were going to be built. Ride safe.

      My Dad had one of the limited edition 1984 Harley Davidson Electra Glide's. His was (special white) cream with gold trim. It was a fully dressed hogg. My Mom sold the bike out from under my brother along with a 1976 bicentennial in black and white that my Dad owned. When my Dad passed away in 2005, everything had a price tag on it and she wanted the money instead of holding up on promises that both my parents made to my brother and I. My brother was to receive both Harley's but the Harley Dealer in Johnstown PA bought both bikes. The bicentennial goes on tour with the Dealership while the cream/gold one stays in the Dealers Private Collection. I never knew what my mom sold the bikes for and would probably vomit if I did. The Dealership bought the bikes sight unseen and trailered them back to the dealership. My Dad kept the bikes in his finished basement and both bikes were in mint condition. The limited edition was only driven until 1987 when my Dad retired. He mostly used the bicentennial bike over those years anyway. Hopes this helps. I do have a picture I can e-mail you of the bicentennial Harley that goes on tour with the Dealership. When my brother was at a bikers rally, he saw the bike roped off and almost dropped to his knees when he saw that it was our Dad's bike.
