Harley Davidson 1958 Models 

The Duo-Glide replaces the Hydra-Glide designation in the F-Series. The Duo-Glide is so named for the addition of rear shocks, and the already present front suspension, thus Duo.

Also new in '58 were addition of model XLC to the Sportster line. The XLC was an off-road version of the XL. Off road racing in America was done on graded and relatively smooth course called TT's or Scrambles. The sport of Motocross racing wasn't introduced to America yet. However during this time across the ocean the sport of motocross was maturing and drawing crowd and fan numbers unrivaled in any American motorcycle racing.

Harley Dealer

In 1907, at age 14, Dudley Perkins rode his first Reading Standard Cycle. Perkins along with Al Maggini opened their own Harley-Davidson dealership in California . They promoted the bikes by racing them. As world war II was coming to an end, Dudley Perkins saw the need to purchase the 80,000 plus bikes produced by H-D for the military. He had them repainted and ready for sale as the war ended. Dealer sales escalated as the veterans demand for bikes came into full swing.
