Hi mate... you don't happen to have an old dusty shed with some hidden harleys in it?

 

I'll come over and take all that junk away for you :thumbup2:

Amazing someone would pay that price!

Isn't there a funny about a side car breaking away from a bike!
That's my first thought!!'

Oh, and pets who ride in the side car, some exotic pure breed puddle or such with goggles!

($420K !!!!)

Lets see you find parts for that, Probably cost at least 50k to restore it.

 

I got a shed full of junk TsVk! No Harley's but.

 

I can't see the fascination with Harley's.

until fairly recently (sometime in the 1990's or 2000's), Harley engine and chassis parts were made at John Deere forge in Wisconsin. These bikes were made to last, although break-downs were frequent.

 

Knowledgeable riders could often fix these bikes fairly easily, because it was frequently just a matter of parts slipping out of position. More modern bikes break down less frequently, but cost more to repair, because it is more often a matter of a part actually breaking or getting completely worn out.

Use to own a 42WLA Harley ex-army years ago and ride it around up north of OZ. Had a foot clutch and gear stick on the side of the tank. She was a tough machine that.

Awesome! I don't see anything in the way of brakes. Perhaps they were removed to save weight. :)

Nowadays, motorbikes with sidecars (at least the racing ones) are called "outfits," but they no longer bear much resemblance to motorbikes.
