For Sale: 1950 Harley-Davidson Motorcycle in Kentwood, Michigan


Vehicle Description

GR Auto Gallery is pleased to offer this custom 1950 Harley-Davidson Panhead for purchase. The Harley Davidson Company was started a little over 100 years ago. In 1903 two friends began this well respected name in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The brand was created using both their names and took the "H" from William S. Harley and the "D" from Arthur Davidson. The panhead was a Harley-Davidson motorcycle engine, so nicknamed because of the distinct shape of the rocker covers. The engine is a two-cylinder, two-valve-per-cylinder, pushrod V-twin, made in both 61 c.i. (EL) and 74 c.i. (FL, FLH) displacements. The engine replaced the Knucklehead engine in 1948 and was manufactured until 1965 when it was replaced by the Shovelhead. As the design of Harley-Davidson engines evolved through the years, the distinctive shape of the valve covers has allowed Harley enthusiasts to classify an engine simply by looking at the shape of the covers, and the panhead has covers resembling an upside-down pan.

This custom 1950 Harley-Davidson Hard Tail Head Bobber is absolutely breathtaking. Recently restored, with a full custom paint job. A wishbone frame, wide front end, disc brake, chain drive, velocity stack and .30 over bore. The pictures truly speak for themselves with this one. After the restore the bike was ridden very gingerly resulting in only 142 miles on the odometer. Exceptional quality build for an experienced Harley enthusiast, this bike has been very well cared for and is ready to ride. A real show stopper and great bar hopper, there are no disappointments with the Harley offered here.
