1952 Harley Davidson K Model

1952 was the introduction year for Harley’s new K Model design which took the place of the aging WL flathead.  The WL was an excellent design but no match for the new British bikes that were invading the US market at that time. The 45ci K Model was very modern with the telescoping front forks, new swing arm rear suspension and the four speed transmission that was incorporated in one case along with the flywheels. In 1954, the K Model motor was bumped up to 55ci and, in 1957, the overhead XL Sportster was introduced and the street version K was relegated to the race track with their KR factory racer. This very nice example was restored to ride and has been a dependable weekend warrior for many years.  Besides the original “buckhorn” style handlebars, the bike sports its original speedometer, flared fenders, green faced speedometer, Linkert carburetor and its classic bugle horn. Have fun cruising the back roads or a quick hop down to the soda shop for some show and tell with your buddies, this old girl is sure to please.
