This fine 1956 Harley-Davidson KHK has been undercover in a garage in Denver Colorado since 1973. It was the primary ride for a fighter pilot who purchased it in 1965. He rode it often when weather was right from his home in Denver out to the airbase. This machine was parked in the garage in 1971 when the owner bought a new 1971 FLH for touring. This machine includes the windscreen with the patches put on the lower level that allowed the rider to get on the airbase outside of Denver.
Odometer shows 29,555.
This appears to be an original paint machine. Polished right up, it has few nicks and scratches. Paint on the tank is showing signs of spidering.
Sheet metal is complete and all original. There is a cross ding at the back of the front fender where the machine appears to have bottomed out. There is a dent at the back of the gas tank that appears to have been made by the front of the buddy seat.
All chrome is clean and neat. There is a lot of it with the racks and the wind screen holders, shocks and pipes.
This bike was just serviced and fired right up. Good power and compression. Gears all appear to be good up and down the range. New battery installed.
