While still not totally clear, it appears that Harley-Davidson will be discontinuing several models of its motorcycles for the 2008 model year, meaning this year is the last year.

These models are...

VRSCR (Street Rod)
VRSCX (Screamin Eagle V-Rod)
XL50 (50th Anniversary Sportster)
FXSTD (Softail Deuce)
FLSTSC (Softail Springer Classic)
FLHRS (Road King Custom)
FXST (Softail Standard)
FXDWG (Dyna Wide Glide)
XL883R (Sportster 883R)

Perhaps the biggest shocker is the Dyna Wide Glide being discontinued.

This information came from a thread on HDForums from a person named, "fireballin03", who claims to work for a Harley dealer, posted several copies of the same message that these models will be discontinued for 2008...

Everyone would've probably believed it, if not for three models, FXDWG, FLHRS, and FXST, being on the list. Those happen to be very popular and very well known models.

A second person, also claiming to work for a Harley dealer, backed up the report.

Then a person named, "buttman" posted what he claims to be the actual letter from Harley-Davidson to their dealers:

But what appears to be the icing on the cake is a Harley dealer, "Denney's Harley-Davidson" out of Springfield, MO, posting a notice on their website that these models will be discontinued for 2008:

Based on what Denney's Harley-Davidson is announcing to the public, it sounds legit.

While these models are claimed to be discontinued, the rumor is that they won't really go away. Instead, new models will be introduced, similar to the ones being discontinued. One person hinted at the Street Bob becoming the new Dyna Wide Glide.
