With wartime utilitarianism in the rearview mirror, Harley-Davidson entered the 1950s with the 74-cubic-inch Panhead powertrain, the Hydra-Glide telescopic front end, and refreshing color schemes that brought new energy to the only surviving American motorcycle manufacturer. One of the most beloved models was the 1956 FLH, which featured a red base color with a white stripe, known as the “slash” two-tone color scheme. Now, 75 years after the 1949 introduction of the Hydra-Glide front end, Harley-Davidson is reviving this icon of the Panhead era in serialized limited production.
To celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Hydra-Glide, a champion of the Panhead era is resurrected with the release of the limited-edition 2024 Hydra-Glide Revival.Learn More
The renowned two-tone “slash” paint scheme from the 1956 models is reintroduced in Redline Red and Birch White.
Inspired by a custom 1956 FLH, the solo seat and saddle bags are fringed and embellished with candy-colored rosettes, white seam piping, and red contrast stitching.
The Hydra-Glide Revival’s detachable, two-tone windshield is period correct and color matched in Redline Red.
Limited to 1,750 bikes, each individual motorcycle has a serialized “Hydra-Glide Revival” emblem on the handlebar riser cap, as well as an “Icons Motorcycle Collection” graphic on the rear fender.
The 74-cubic-inch Panhead motor was a marvel at the birth of the American highway but is no match for today’s Milwaukee-Eight® 114 V-twin, which delivers modern performance and that classic Harley-Davidson look, sound, and feel.
While cruise control made its debut in the ‘50s, it wasn’t featured on the original Hydra-Glide, but we’re sure it would’ve been appreciated by beatniks and other wayfaring riders.
Any old-school hotrodder will tell you to “let that motor breathe,” which is why the Screamin’ Eagle® High-Flow Air Cleaner comes standard on the Hydra-Glide Revival.
