Chicken coop finds 1940 Knucklehead and a 1947 Knucklehead


 I never thought the day would come when I would unearth not 1 but 2 old knuckleheads that have been sitting since the early 1960's.. It feels like a dream from the moment I got a call on the shop phone "Hi Jeremiah can you get my 1915 Indian running"? I responded I am sure I can I can make anything run, I would love to have the opportunity. "ok sounds good I also have 2 other bikes you may be interested in looking at a 1940 knucklehead and a 1947 Knucklehead.

I respond oh really whats the story on them? "They were my fathers and he had them a very long time" ok I ask can I come see them? "Of course here is the address" At this point I think someone is playing a big joke on me I jump in my old truck. 

The rest is history I meet David and the story begins, my life changes I am now a proud owner of an old 1940 EL knucklehead that has sat for 50 years and has the coolest story which will come soon.

It gets even better I get to restore Davids untouched all 1947 Knucklehead that was his fathers. It hasn't been touched since 1962... I got her running after 50 years OLD HARLEYS never die. STAY TUNED more to come as well as some first time run videos!!

PEace Love and HAppines and old Harleys

NEW STUFF ALERT - S&S Cycle Inc Tribute Air Cleaner Kit

"Conceived by S&S founder and brought to market by his son George B Smith, the Classic Two Throat carb and matched air cleaner served as a performance milestone in the v-twin space for over a decade. Now long gone, they are still a hot commodity for in-the-know chopper builders. Inspired by the unique style of their Two Throat intake, S&S has created the new "Tribute" air cleaner cover and wrapped it around their contemporary Stealth filter system. The forward facing scoop shape provides a distinct air flow advantage and we've always loved the look of this air cleaner, so bringing it back needed to happen!", states S&S Product Manager, Grant Hillegass.

S&S has a Stealth style air filter kit for most HD models and the Tribute cover bolts nicely to all of them (available as a complete kit or cover only) in chrome or gloss black.

The performance advantage is significant (up to 6hp on the M8 platform!) and most of the late model kits are CARB legal and warranty friendly.

Check them out on their site.
