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.

The Harley-Davidson FXDB Daytona introduced a pearl color scheme to Harley bikes.

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.

Triple-disc brakes provided the Daytona with massive stopping power.
