Here's a brief history of the Sport Glides
The Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Sport (FLHS) debuted in 1977 as a basic, ow cost version of the venerable Electra Glide.
With a stock 74 cubic inch Shovelhead engine, he late-70's FLHS had no windshield, addle bags or luggage racks.
According to Rick Conner's Harley-Davidson Data Book, he FLHS first appeared as "a limited edition, ne-year-only version of the FLH".
Whether or not the factory's original intent was to limit production to one year only, he model continued into the next year at least, s evidenced by H-D's own 1999 calendar which shows a 1978 FLHS.

After it's initial "limited production" run, t is unclear whether or not there was such a thing as a 1979 FLHS.

By 1980, he model was either continued or reinstated.

The 1981 version was unique in that it had dual staggered pipes, orward controls, ull-back handlebars and an "FX style stepped seat".

By 1982, he FLHS was back to saddlebags, loorboards, tandard FLH seats and standard cross-over headers, aking the '81 FLHS a rare and unique ride.
