This is a 1946 Harley Davidson EL Knucklehead Bobber. The Harley Davidson EL Knucklehead was purchased new by the original owner in California. He rode the hell out of it, including to Hollister in 1947. The second owner bought the bike in the early 60’s when his buddy transferred to the big house for life.
Unknown. Appears to be fresh build with minimal mileage if any. 73 miles show on the trip odometer as found and not reset.
Paint is immaculate and well applied. May have a few storage scratches (just covering my a** here, I cannot find any) The original color was a grey which shows through under a few chips and around the filler caps.
Excellent sheet metal with period correct bob job to the fenders. The front fender may be a model A bobbed fender
Excellent quality chrome that shined right up. Lots of it to make that early Bling look.
This engine appears to be a new rebuild that has rarely been started. Quality parts and workmanship are apparent during a visual inspection. The engine has been correctly prepped before starting and it is now a first ignition kick start! Time for this to be correctly and carefully broke in to enjoy a very long life. Safe break in procedures are recommended.
Rims are chrome with chrome spokes. Tires are from the 70’s and may need to be replaced to make this a quality rider. (Would not bother me). 500 X 16 Goodyear’s on Chrome rims with chrome spokes.
Clean, clear, California Title.
