1947 HD Knucklehead
1947 Harley Davidson Knucklehead EL. Same owner last 25 years until I acquired it. Older cosmetic restoration using as many original parts as possible performed about 15 years ago. Engine has less than 2500 miles since it was rebuilt 3 years ago. Matching belly #'s and of course an unaltered original Vin #. Heads have been upgraded to o-ring intake so no more plumbers nut intake leaks. Bike has original linkert carb and original J slot air cleaner w/ tag. Correct knucklehead transmission was just rebuilt with the engine, but it only needed bearings. No repairs on the cases ever. Even has the right kicker cover. The original Bullneck frame on this bike is in great shape and was never cut up or rusty. All sheetmetal and tanks are original except for the front fender which is a reproduction piece( It is an older reproduction so the quality is good) Original front end is great with no bends or repairs evident. Still has the original Monroe Shock. Dash is original with glass lens and cool SW Police Special Speedo(doesnt work) Original Cycle Ray headlight. Original tailight with guide markings. original glass lens front marker light. Original Delco horn which works. New 6 volt battery with correct original cover ond oil bag. Bike has tons of extra chrome which really looks great off the black paint. It also has some neat 50's era accessories such as the clutch cover, springer axle cover, coil cover, and shifter knob. The paint and bodywork was very nice quality work, but keep in mind the bike was done cosmetically years ago so there are minor chip touchups throughout. Some of the chrome shows some age also, but overall this bike is very presentable. Excellent rider, no unusual leaks or smoke, 2 primes, one kick every time. I've put approx. 300 trouble free miles on her personally.
