1925 Harley-Davidson JD with Sidecar
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 that 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. The J would eventually evolve into the JD which had a 74 cubic inch V twin and a few other refinements making it even more powerful and rideable by today's road standards.
Offered here is a wonderful original 1925 JD with its original sidecar just out of a long time ownership. It wears a bit of an older restoration, but overall is very original and a very nice and complete bike. All sheetmetal and all accessories including the lights, tanks, fenders, etc.. are all original to this bike. Even with their higher production numbers than earlier Harleys, an all original JD is very seldom seen today. Mechanically it runs and drives perfectly and is ready for show or riding down the open road.
