Harley made some bikes, I believe in the 80's and 90's that they called Sturgis edition bikes. Do a google search, I bet you'll find lots of them. I believe they were FX's.

Only 2 years that I know of:

1980:
"In honor of the historic Sturgis motorcycle rally, Harley-Davidson releases the FXB Sturgis model, employing belt drive, black chrome appointments and 80 cubic inch engine."

1991:
"The Dyna line of motorcycles debuts with the 1991 FXDB Dyna Glide Sturgis."


Got a good friend that still has a 91 Sturgis

(Info from Harley-Davidson.com. Timeline)

Best I can tell they were built 1980-1982/83 (many say 82 was the last year) and 1991

Dual-plugs are a common shovelhead modification.

Probably a blacked out super glide from 75, dual plug heads are common for shovels...

As these guys have said, dual plugging is a popular modification for shovels (panheads too). Dual plugs provide less benefit w/ flat-top pistons like the Evo and later engines have. That's why you don't see this mod as often anymore.

Panhead w/ dual plugged heads... stock left side (notice two coils):


Modified for right side plugs (between the pushrod tubes):
