This is the project I can never seem to finish. Heritage in the back ground was my fathers.We got it when my father passed away. My brother rides it now. No chopping on this one. Leaving it the way Dad had it.
my old 1913 H-D model 9E chain drive twin, single speed since H-D did not develope a 2 speed until 1914 when it used excelsior's 2 speed rear hub. also, no floorboards, you kept your feet on the peadles. this was the scariest bike i ever rode. it would do 60 if you had cast iron balls. i dont, but i rode around 35-40 mph and what a handfull! ridgid rear, 1" travel in front, tiller type bars, coaster brakes just like your old schwinn bicycle, that worked about as well!
my favorite bike, my 1938 UL 74" flathead. i built this about 12 years ago, it is not fully restored, but about 95% correct, needs step hubs, less chrome, correct bars, & air horn (carb cover) but other than that it is about all correct. a blast to ride, with or withour the sidecar attached.
my '53 fl panhead. never really liked pans except for resale, but this one was very correct so i kept it. seized a rod bearing so i tore it completely apart for a full restoration. have it about 1/2 way done now. i want to repaint it, but have not selected a color yet.
my '40 EL knucklehead, now 74". mostly genuine H-D parts, just chromed a bunch of it. nearly perfect '41 frame, nos 45 springer converted to fit 1" bearings, stock front drum, pm disc rear, open belt, 36-39 tanks, 41-46 speedo. been collecting parts for this one for about 14 years or so i think, i lost track.
