1947 Harley Davidson Knucklehead
1947 was the last year of production for the iconic Harley Davidson “Knucklehead” motor design and an end to a twelve year run of the factories most highly sought after and collectible motorcycle to date. A nice example in today’s world is becoming harder to source and the prices seem to jump with every sale recorded. The Knucklehead that we have to offer here is a numbers matching bike with clean case numbers, original Harley frame, forks and gear box, as well as the majority of the other components that make up the motorcycle. Items that are known to be aftermarket are the speedometer and front fender. I have no doubt that there are other small components that are not genuine OEM HD parts, but it will take a personal inspection to source them out. The 74ci. motor as well as the gear box have been reported to be recent rebuilds while the rest of the bike sports that sought after patina’d look. Other features of the motorcycle include, 16 inch wheels, original buddy seat and saddle bags, front fork dampener, rebuilt M35 Linkert carb, Cycle Electric regulator and generator and more. If a Knucklehead is on your “Bucket List”, look no further, this old girl is ready to hit the road with a new partner.
