1938 Harley Davidson Knucklehead

Stunning correct restoration of 1938 Harley Davidson EL Knucklehead. 1938 was the first year for the enclosed valves and stiffer frame among many other upgrades that made this a truly rideable bike. Perfect unscarred and matching cases. No welds or repairs ever. Original frame(one year only) and original sheetmetal finished in correct Venetian Blue with white stripes.(NOS kicker pedal in matching color) Many NOS parts were used in the restoration which was initially completed 15 years ago. The bike was recently taken out of careful storage and has been maintenced. There were imperfections in the Tank/ fender paint so they were just recently professionally redone. This is one of the smoothest running Knuckles I have owned. Always a 2 prime one kick start. Original 4 speed shifts smoothly. Upgraded to a belt primary for smooth and oil free operation. (This bike has no leaks whatsoever) Unlike most pre war knuckles, this bike is ridden on average a few time a month around town...very carefully. Upon closer inspection of this bike you will notice all the painstaking details like correct hardware and plating throughout. A few items on the bike show a little wear but are original such as the speedo bezel, front fender light chrome, and clutch/ brake pedal rubber. Unique opportunity to own one of the most desireable low production Pre-War Harley Davidsons ever produced
