The 1992 Harley-Davidson FXDB Daytona drew its name from Daytona Beach, Florida, which (along with Sturgis, South Dakota) hosts a major motorcycle event each year.
In 1991, Harley-Davidson celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Sturgis rally with a specially trimmed FXDB Sturgis model. The following year, a similar tribute was paid to the 50th anniversary of the Daytona meet with the FXDB Daytona.
While the Sturgis wore somber black highlighted with touches of orange, the Daytona was dressed in brighter shades with a more traditional level of chrome trim and boasted Harley's first true pearl paint job. On the tank was a special decal announcing the 50th anniversary as taking place in March of 1991.
Triple disc brakes were bolted to color-matched cast wheels, and highway pegs were mounted to the lower frame. Production was limited. Only 1,700 Daytonas were built, which was not nearly enough to go around.
