My father has a 1911 Harley (Restored). It is nice to see an original in that condition. The production numbers on the early bikes was very small and many did not survive.

Nice rare original bike. Thank you!

Are you familiar with the Cannonball Run? Riders ride from Kitty Hawk, NC to the pacific ocean averaging 2-300 miles per day. Only requirement is the bike cannot be newer than 1916. (if I remember correctly)

45 riders this year,most finished; my buddy 30th!

A friend found this video and forward it to me. The tag on the bike is a 1913 Manatoba Canada tag and I beleive thats where the bike is. Is the wire located at the right rear of the crankcase that slides up and down a chain oiler provision? Or what? I'll hang a picture of my '37 WL here but I know its a little out of league for this thread.

Do you know the difference between a Hoover and a Harley? The location of the dirtbag. Sorry, I couldn't resist. I'm a bad boy.

Preston: To answer your question about the wire on the right side of the crankcase: If we are looking at the same wire it has a loop in it like a finger pull. This is for a cutout on the muffler. From the factory these bikes were equipped with a flapper that could be opened by the rider to bypass the muffler. You can see the black muffler directly behind the chain sprocket. If you look at where the two exhaust pipes come together you can see the flapper and the latching mechanism. Cool stuff for such an early bike. My fathers bike has the same mechanism. Hope this is helpful.

Indian, Indian made of tin. Ride em out and push them in. This was a joke or taunt from the board track days. The engine in the video sounds like a latter F engine.
