Here is a 1948 titled Harley motor. 1948 was the first year of panhead and very sought after. It was rebuilt by the late great Carson Little. It has sat in dry storage since then. I purchased it as a back up motor for my 48. But times are tight and I need to sell it. I removed the top end to take a peek as I had some new head gaskets. Looks superb. STD bore. I know No details of the rebuild. just that Carson was an expert and It appears to be very nice. The Cases look mint. I see no repairs or repairs needed. It has Factory VIN number matching the clean and clear title in my name. It has Matching belly numbers. It has correct Aluminum lifter blocks which have been chromed. It has Original Cam dash97 cover marked alcoa. It too has been chromed. It has correct oil pump body but has a later aluminum cover on it. Common practice. I see no broken fins on the cylinders or heads. The heads are later o-ring style which though not "correct" for restoration sure take the guesswork out of making your intake seal correctly. They look to have new valves. (see pic) It has a linkert m35-tp which I think is right for 1948. The chrome on it looks better in the pictures then it is actually. Its older chrome with patina. NOT new mint chrome. This would be an awesome motor to put in a period modified. chopper or bobber. The title is clean and clear and in my name. If you have any other questions or need more pictures don't hesitate to ask. Message me here or give me a call or text message. 336. 324. 0083. I am willing to ship this on your dime. I can ship to most anywhere in the USA for under $200. It will not leave my possession before full payment has cleared my hands. I can take the deposit through paypal but the remainder will need to be cash. certified check. check. or wire transfer. I can also deliver it to Daytona AMCA meet in the beginning of March assuming it is paid in full prior to that. And as always you are welcome to pick it up in person with cash in a brown paper sack. Thanks for looking.
