Act fast, bid on this bike now on Ebay

"Unique opportunity to own a rare 1949 Harley-Davidson Pan Head Chopper built by Land Speed Record Holder Wink Eller in a 70's Easy rider style in SoCal & offered by Gas Monkey Garage. When I found this I was looking for a cool bike to display in a specific area and while the length was good at 11' the height was too tall at 59". Wink Started with 1949 Tedd Cycle frame cut & raked at the neck, added an original uncut 36 over Harman front end, Invader wheels with a rare star rear hub center with a 5.0X16 Coker Classic White Wall in the rear & a 3.0X16 IRC up front(this set up allows you to steer side to side with a single hand). A freshly built original 1949 Harley-Davidson Pan Head engine with a new Joe Hunt Mag, M74B Linkert Carb & custom hi-rise exhaust driving a new 4 speed gear box. Custom paint by Harpoon Kustom Paint on a custom asymmetrical 3-D fuel tank (see all pics), Hi-rise sissy Bar with a King& Queen saddle, custom Trapezoidal Head Lamps & a single cool leather Stash Bag on the left side . If you’re wanting a Kick Ass chopper to go looking for adventure or whatever comes your way you won’t find a better example that’s priced to sell ! This is a great bike for riding (a little over 500 miles have been put on since the build)"
