Selling an original 2 owner (i am the 3rd) 1936 EL Knucklehead serial number 36EL15XX with matching belly numbers.
The bike hasn't changed as you see it since 1965 when the original owner repainted it and then has sat since 1989 when it changed hands. Every piece on the bike is original Harley Davidson, ther than the speedometer which is working 1937 ford, nd was only changed to replace worn out parts. The rear fender hinge was swapped when painted to accommodate a fancier chrome beehive but still retains the original butterfly braced fenders front and rear. The bike even has the original firestone tires on it!
The frame is a perfect 1937 that I assume was either replaced due to the weakness' of 1936's or may have even come from the factory with it already installed that way.
Replaced the battery with a HD 6v, ebuilt the carb, ew points, hanged all the fluids and double checked all mechanical parts and it fired right up and rides amazing. Transmission shifts through all gears flawlessly and the original 4 bolt narrow clutch is perfect. All lights and electrical work as well!
The left tank was sealed, assume after sitting for so long, nd while it looks run-able I have yet to put gas in that tank.
I have tried to include as many photos as I can of the rare parts and detail shots but if you would like something specific please feel free to contact me.
Bike is titled clear in California as a 1936 knucklehead and is plated, eady to ride.
The bike is available for sale locally so I reserve the right to end the auction early at any time.
