Harley Davidson Knuckleheads get under your skin. I have owned three or four and always thought I would have another...thank you very much !
It could be argued that even the present day (well not the 2019 Harleys..which are ugly as dirt ) Harley Davidson owe much to the original design. The Knucklehead was the coolest thing the Factory turned out, it was and still is a rideable, dependable motorcycle if properly built and maintained. Yes...you have to maintain them. I prefer the 61" EL over the 74" FL. They seem a little smoother and easier to live with. Maybe I'm getting old ???

I know this is a Honda but it is very sweet. You can still see the European influence as Honda got up and running. The Japanese motorcycle companies were and still are masters of copying what works and sells and then making it better to out sell their competitors.
These bikes are becoming very collectible, this one is selling in the $10K range and looks to be completely original. It predates the "you meet the nicest people on a Honda" slogan
This is one one of the coolest motorcycles ever built, a 1928 Harley Davidson twin cam JDH. In it's day it would do 100 mph off the showroom floor.... that was smoking in 1928 ! This one is on EBay with an opening bid of $60K with a reserve set higher than that.
I will probably never own one but it's on my list.
