1920 Harley-Davidson Model J
Harley-Davidson was introduced to the world in 1903 in Milwakee, Wisconsin and would become one of the worlds largest and most successful motorcycle manufacturers. Harley had been through two world wars, the great depression, ownership changes, and product quality problems but managed to survive and still hold onto their brand image and the original feel that they always had. Some of Harley's early models are very important and iconic motorcycles that are some of the greatest historical bikes to exist today. One of the most iconic models is the Model J, introduced in 1915, with its great 61 cubic inch F head V twin engine. The J was also the first model where Harley bumped up its production numbers and started to dominate the motorcycle market.
Offered here is a very nicely restored 1920 Model J that has had a single ownership since 1974. Found in a barn here in Connecticut, the Bike was restored over a number of years back to its original glory. Restored, but also a very complete original bike.
