Need to sell 1950 el. I am the second owner. I purchased it from a retired pittsburgh motorcycle police officer. His nick name was hoggie. He passed a few years ago, but i can provide additional details of his name and history if it is the reason for purchase. Included is a copy of the add posted on the vfw bulletin board of the bike back in hoggie's day with all the trophies. The hd manual is included. (note the price sticker and mechanic name "woddie" on the cover. Old timers know woodie worked at the original hd shop that was torn down back in the day to make room for the old three rivers stadium.) i have a very good clear copy of the original pa title from back in 1950's plus a clean current pa title. Hoggie was a pitts motorcycle patrolman. So when i purchased the bike he had upgraded it with later year parts as one would find laying around the city police garage such as mouse trap clutch, no hand shift, later model year fenders, tanks and tail light. Back in 2002 when i purchased the bike i sold these parts off and purchased reproduction parts to give the bike the tank shift 1950 look and rebuild the motor and tranny. Motor professional rebuilt by keith at engine company in erie pa in 2004. The buddy seat, bags, windshield and crash bar covers are included. The glide lights work, but are not hard wired to a switch. Please note, the pictures with white wall tires are from 2009, just prior to my deployment to iraq with the army. The bike is runs perfectly. Nothing idles like an old pan. Newer harley riders can't believe how smooth and slow it idles with out stalling. An excellent kick start daily driver. The bike is a mix of original and reproduction parts. 12 volt upgrade, s&s carb, internal throttle cable, belt primary, electronic ignition, new avon tires, american made reproduction royalite bags from pa manufacturer, rear fender hinge seam welded smooth. Original true duel exhaust. Mufflers are later model hd. The tanks are aftermarket 5 gallon tanks. Frame neck lock has key and works. The front end is 2 inches over, so the bike does not have the tired pan look. The bike is far from perfect, but it will never leave its new owner down. The paint is at least 10 years old and has a few chips. Sold as is, look closely at the pictures. Purchasers to arrange all shipping.
