1947 Harley Davidson 74 Knucklehead unrestored.
Then the rest of the bike was completely disassembled with plans to "restore" and repaint but luckily that's as far as it went. Nothing else was stripped or charred on this bike except the tanks and dash.The gas tanks had a few small rust holes from sitting in the shed where it was stored for 60 years with no paint so we painted them (and sealed them inside) to match the fenders. It's hard to tell the tanks and dash were painted, they blend very well with the fenders. The speedo was rebuilt recently and works well. Everything works on this bike except the horn. I've put around 150 miles on this bike and it runs and rides great with no issues. However this bike is not rebuilt new.
simply inspected all parts and reassembled "as is" but in good running order. The following parts were replaced: wrist pin bushings, crank pin bearings, and new pistons and rings 40 over. All internal parts in transmission looked slightly used but nice and original! This bike runs nice smooth and strong with no noise or smoke. Trans shifts great. I did rewire this bike using correct cloth wire from Colony. I also added new Firestone 16" tires.
The only new or repo parts on this bike (that I know of) is the wiring, bulbs, tires, gas caps, pistons, a few bushings, a voltage relay and the muffler. The rest is Harley Davidson and original to the bike. This motorcycle does come with a clear title.
