Alright I found a harley Id rock

Ive busted alot of balls about harleys as the years have gone on mainly because of the sigma associated with them and they're high maitence. But this one makes my downstairs tingle, not sure what these things are worth but 50k gave me a little sticker shock. Reguardless here's a bad ass harley.

1946 Harley FL Knucklehead



Well done!

no... thats NOT how a 46 knucklehead is meant to look... too modernized with the belt drive and crap. gah they ruined that poor harley. it surely isnt worth $50k being so far from original.

Ironic. A new Harley has minimal service work required and are very reliable.
A old one - say 1946 - you'd be tooling on it all the time!


S&S make a nice replica engine of the old HD and it would be more powerful and reliable.

Probably looks just like the '46 too.

PV, aren't they all belt drive?

no. if you look at the primary you can tell it's aftermarket. the 46 knucklehead my grandfather rode was chain driven.

Other than the occupation after The War I am unsure just how a '42 would wind up in Japan, it would have to be a converted GI bike. Badass all the way though. I would so rock out to a ratted out Kuncklehead.

That '46 is way to nice for me. I would want to ride it all the time and to mess up the restro on it would be to f*ed up. So I will stand back and enjoy the eyecandy.

Why do you think they chrome everything? It's easier to spot on the side of the road.


PV, gotcha. For some reason I thought they were all belt.


The bikes in the vids are badass. Sound so much cooler than new stuff, even if they do sound like WWI bi-planes.
