Knucklehead 39EL Harley Davidson. Right out of the barn. Purchased in the 1980’s from an antique car guy North of Topeka, KS, who had owned the motorcycle for years. Bike was partially disassembled. Brought home and put everything together. At the time there were a few parts missing, went to motorcycle swap meets early 90’s and located missing parts. At this time bike is very complete and everything is original Harley Davidson except for the 6” air cleaner outer cover. Has original 6” backing mount for air cleaner. Never could find an original one. Engine cases have never been apart. Matching belly numbers, original VIN#. As good as it gets! Pistons were removed from motor when I bought the bike and it appears the heads have been rebuilt. Rocker boxes and tins are perfect. Man I bought bike from said I could put piston and rings in and would run fine. Never did do this was always looking for the right person I could trust to check out the bottom end first. Has all the right 39 items. 18” stepped hub wheels, early style Springer, correct shift gate, very hard to find original tool box. Beehive taillight is cover only…do not have backing mount or glass lenses. Has correct gas shut offs. Correct tanks and tanks appear to be good and clean. Has correct fender hardware. Has rear stand and kick stand (kick stand separate from bike). Has pair of early saddle bags. Original spot lights, original fender light, original headlight, original horn and original ride control on Springer. Bike could be restored or made to run as is. Has two transmission cases, one is cracked and one looks to be good. Both early cases. Vented through kicker cover. There are two four fin early cylinders that go with this bike but not installed on bike. Muffler is very old but I am told is not what came on the bike when new. Condition AS IS! Correct 39 shift gate and shift drum. No extra parts just what is seen in photos. KS Title in hand, in my name. SELLING AS IS! NO RETURNS. CASH IN PERSON. WIRE TRANSFER OF FUNDS. NO PAYPAL. NO CREDIT CARDS. BUYER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL SHIPPING ARRANGEMENTS TO AND FROM KANSAS CITY, ZIP CODE 66216
