This motorcycle was born at a unique time in post-war Harley Davidson operations and design. There was a huge new engine factory in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin and the new Panhead V-twin engine was replacing the Knucklehead in both 61 and 74 cubic inch displacements and incorporated several engineering improvements. The aluminum heads, underneath the namesake pan-shaped rocker covers, cooled faster than cast iron, hydraulic lifters reduced valve noise, and improved oil circulation increased engine life. Adding to its collectible attractiveness, this was also the final year of the springer fork suspension. The designers also added touches of chrome, a stylish headlight and a tombstone taillight. This restored beauty is the 74 cubic inch (1208 cc), OHV, air-cooled, 45-degree V-twin model and still has the original condition saddle bags, windshield, and back rack included. Also included are the original bill of sale, title, and other documents. Engine No. 48FL-11096. A rare opportunity to own a one owner piece of history. Certainly a fantastic addition to any collection at home or abroad. Condition: (Restored). Dimensions: 91"L x 35"W x 44"T.
