1947 Harley Davidson Knucklehead Chopper

In the need of a new ride and got tax money that Uncle Sam sat on over the year and made interest with? Well, looky here hombre's. Found this on ebay this morning and the sale is about to end without the bike even hitting its reserve. Good luck bidding on this ride.

"This is a custom built single down tube rigid bike that was built to have that old boardtrack feel. Professionally built she has a ton of time put into making sure everything works as good as it looks.

1981 Shovel bottom end completely gone through. New Primo primary, clutch, belt, pulleys everything. Late Knucklehead top end with fresh pistons, valves, springs etc. endless hours went into making this combo work together, It's an ol school thing that hardly anyone does anymore. A freshened up Morris Mag with new wires makes it fire up first kick. Ratched Lid 4 Speed trans, also completely rebuilt. Crimescene oil tank with brass lines. Late shovel primary case with the starter bump filled and smoothed out.

Custom mid controls by Cycle Boys with Flyrite brakes and really really expensive De Luxe hand controls. Late HD spring shortened 3 inches slams it nice and low. 21 inch front and rear wheels with frsh Avon skins

There are too many details to list but I can say this bike has an amazing stance and runs amazing. It was featured in Feb/March issue of Street Chopper and gets a ton attention at the shop. Leave her bare or give it some shiney paint, either way you'll have a one of a kind badass bike."
