1928 Harley Davidson Peashooter
When I think of the great motorcycles that have been produced over the years I always gravitate towards the bare bones approach. The Harley Peashooter is at the top when it comes to pure racing efficiency. These bikes were produced in the 1920- and early thirties and they really excelled on the track. The racing versions were overhead valve and they could come close to the magical ton ! Quite an achievement in their day. They were called Peashooters because of the popping noise that came from the exhaust while racing.
The reason I am writing this post is that I came across a reproduction frame and fork set on an auction site near you. It looks pretty good but not as good as an original. It gives the average Joe a chance to piece one of these historic bikes together.
