This 1953 Harley-Davidson Panhead FL was originally sold into Mexico and was purportedly used by an Evil Knivel stunt team. Re-patriated in the early 80’s, the bike was restored and used in SoCal. Picked back up by a major collector in 2004, this machine has just undergone a complete restoration fitting for a King. Work was performed by knowledgeable HD vintage specialists. It has won numerous Best of Show awards in 2010 and again in 2011 and it was placed in AMCA judging in Dixon CA (June 18, 2011) where it garnered a score of 98,5 points which is a Junior 1st according to the AMCA judging guidelines. This fine machine is an excellent example of a great 1953 Harley Davidson Panhead loaded with all of the extra goodies. Ready for polish and go.
