This 1929 Harley Davidson JD motorcycle was purchased from a collector who had gathered these pieces to build a complete bike but then ran out of time. Most of it is all original and some parts came together from the factory, maybe.

I am not a Harley expert so check the pictures closely. We have now created a rolling chassis from these parts. Many of the non-used parts have been sold at a swap meet. The bike needs to be finished and tested out on the road to be a runner.  Frame is straight. Tanks appear whole but are dented.  This is the sum of the parts that have now been assembled.

This motorcycle needs to be wired and fired!
