There is little doubt that the Harley-Davidson brand is one of the recognizable in the world. Little did William Harley and Arthur Davidson know that they were to provide the backbone for motorcycle production in the US from the early days in at the beginning of the last century, through two world wars and right up to the present day.
One of only two American cycle manufacturers to survive the Great Depression, Harley-Davidson again produced large numbers of motorcycles for the US Army in World War II and resumed civilian production afterwards, producing a range of large V-twin motorcycles that were successful both on racetracks and for private buyers.
Offered here in 'Dark' mode, this original Civilian 'post-war' model (with longer frame) is supplied with extensive history and in extremely good condition. With swept back handle bars and the stylistic seating position, this extremely fine example should pique the interest of Hog collectors and riders alike.
