Harley-Davidson Other description

A nice old shovelhead for your consideration

I bought this bike to help an acquaintance out of a rather immediate financial jam. With that said I will tell you what I KNOW and believe about the bike.  It's 44 years old, he owned it 9 years. Anything before that I/We have know firm knowledge of.

This bike was actually last ridden, licensed and insured summer of 2016. I am selling the bike as "non running" because I can only get it to occasionally "pop" now. It's FREEZING here in Michigan and frankly I know little about these older bikes.

I would rather just tell you it does not run... than have very different expectations as to "what runs fine" in an old shovelhead.


The lights work
The electric start works and turns the engine over as it should with apparently great compression
The transmission "shifts" when gently rocks back and forth and "shifted"
the brakes works and release just fine
the horn does not work
The cool whitewall tires are recent in the last couple of years and have good tread with no cracking
seat in real nice shape. It's a Mustang brand.
chrome in nice shape... the front rim has very slight surface rust... I did NOT try to clean or steelwool it at all... I mearly wiped the bike off with a damp rag. I believe the rims will clean up pretty nice. The rest of the chrome is nice.

The bike shows 4416 miles. The previous owner bought it 9 years ago out of Missouri, he said it had 3000 miles on it.  That is all I know. Does not seem like many miles... but I have a 1976 Yamaha in my garage with 1981 miles... so it does happen

leather saddlebags and removable windshield are included, as is a "sissy bar bag" as pictured

The paint is really nice on the tank and rear fender and the top and front of the front fender... unfortunately sometime in the last 9 years the horn came loose and scraped and slightly dented the back of the front fender. The flames are not affected, so repair will be less painful should you decide to get it "spot fixed"


please feel free to ask questions and request special pictures

contact me ahead of time if you have less that 10 positive feedback!!!

300.00 deposit via paypal and immediate contact from buyer is required

no paypal for entire purchase!!

Overseas sales are just fine, I will work with your shipper and help load. I will not arrange shipping or pay for it, but I will cooperate fully with him.

PLEASE DON'T BID IF YOU CANNOT COMPLETE THE DEAL... CHECK YOUR SAVINGS ACCOUNT AND ASK YOUR WIFE FIRST PLEASE!!! they don';t all think a 40 year old Harley is that great an idea

Bike must be picked up by Dec 26 as I am leaving for Florida for the winter!!!

no reserve... somebody is going to own this VERY VERY cool shovelhead... Merry Christmas!!

Harley-Davidson Goes Low for 2015

Tue, 26 Aug 2014 00:00:00 -0700

Harley-Davidson revealed the new 2015 Electra Glide Ultra Classic Low and Ultra Limited Low, offering what it calls the the lowest seat height of any premium touring motorcycle on the market. Designed with riders 5 feet 7 inches and shorter in mind, the two Low models have a seat height of 25.6 inches from the ground, or 1.7 inches lower than the regular models. The lower seat isn’t the only change to accommodate shorter riders.

New Harley-Davidson Sportster for India to Use 500cc V-Twin

Thu, 03 Jan 2013 00:00:00 -0800

When Harley-Davidson first entered the Indian market, The Motor Company decided to import existing models as complete knockdown kits for final assembly in the burgeoning market. Considering the average motorcycle in India has a displacement smaller than 200cc, it was inevitable Harley-Davidson would eventually have to produce a small-displacement model rather than rely on its existing product line which currently lists the 883cc sportsters as its smallest bikes. Despite a denial last May by Harley-Davidson India’s Managing Director Anoop Prakash, it now appears Harley-Davidson is set to announce a new small-displacement model to be produced in India at the 2014 Indian Auto Expo next February.
