For Sale: 1956 Harley-Davidson Trike in Morgantown, Pennsylvania

Vehicle Description

1956 Harley Davidson Trike

Harley Davidson and Indian motorcycles both produced three wheeled trikes from the factory back in the early 1930's used for utility purposes generally, but both had ceased production by the early 1970's. The evolution of trikes has been closely tied to advancements in technology. Early models primarily utilized conventional motorcycle engines and transmissions. However, contemporary trikes feature powerful engines, integrated braking systems with ABS, reverse systems and even automatic shifting transmissions. Thx

For consignment, a customized 1956 Harley Davidson Trike. The front fork seems about 10 feet long and creates a wild head turning vision. Two wheels in the back means you'll be an easy rider without worrying about balance or kick stands. It's no grocery getter, but it's got a small bed in back just in case.

Black and chrome is the name of the game here and starts with those enormous front forks, the leading pieces reminiscent of twisted wrought iron railings. Bird shaped brackets connect the fork to the 7 spoke chrome front wheel. Prussian Iron Cross shaped mirrors adorn each side of the handlebars while the taillights resemble gothic lamps. A glossy black tank flows seamlessly into the engine frame below while a leather satchel is attached in front of the handlebars. A Drag Specialties speedometer is mounted low near the seat while a chrome bicycle bell is mounted on the handlebars. A black leather bucket seat is in great shape and a black metal bed sits just behind. Mag style wheels occupy the back and the tread on the tires is a series of crossed checkered flags.

Between the driver's legs sits a 74ci V-twin, rated at 55 horsepower and fueled by a 1-barrel Linkert M74B carburetor. The engine has lots of chrome and is propelled by a 4-speed manual transmission shifted with foot clutch and hand shifter to a chain driven rear axle. Drum brakes are found in the back and the consignor states a new Wilwood master cylinder has been added recently along with new wheel cylinders and brake shoes. Each head puts out one chrome exhaust pipe on the right side. Springer front suspension is coupled with the rigid rear.

We confirm consignors note that yellow lights are not hooked up and are inoperable. However, the robust brackets holding those lights are enhanced with chrome silhouettes of two female dancers or maybe mechanics. Hard to tell. They stand just in front of dagger style foot rests. Part chopper, part service car, all wild. This is a turnkey show piece for the buyer who is looking for something very different and very special.
