the transmission was rebuilt at same time as motor.

This beauty has over 90% of its original parts PLUS I've invested more than $30,000 in restoring it over the years.

It's black and beautiful with the original 6-volt system and:
  • the original front end with rake-changing pull-out forks and big chrome adjuster knob (possibly could have been a police bike but HD archives still can't confirm, although they said the full chrome tank emblems (no red) is a probable sign)
  • many of the original parts that I have had re-chromed (mousetrap, dash, fender struts, etc.)
  • a knockoff inside primary but outer primary is original with no dings
  • original oil tank chromed to reflect the times
  • Hard-to-find Center Stand with Duo-Glide raised lettering


I expect that you will as "Does it leak". Of course it does. . . it's an old Harley Davidson Panhead. . . LOL.. but nothing more than the primary doing what it's supposed to do.

My best hope is to trade with someone interested in the bike - $10K cash and a used (but decent) Dyna or Harley Softail That I can scoot around on. I need the cash but need to ride just as badly -- LOL.


I haven't ridden the bike in a while (maybe 3 months ago) as I am preparing for a hip replacement hence my desire for a motorcycle with an electric starter.

I could go on and on listing accessories and features but you just must see to appreciate.

I have many extra panhead parts that will go along with the bike including another transmission and side cover, primary chain, another genuine dash with the green neutral lens, manuals and parts catalogs and other stuff.

My asking price has been drastically reduced as I can no longer ride.

If you decide to low-ball me and I accept, I will keep the extras and blow them out here or on eBay (sorry).

This fine, vintage Harley motorcycle was the Concours d'Elegance 2nd place winner in Ohio in 2005, other trophy's taken throughout the East Coast. Meticulously maintained and garaged at all times.

Clear PA title.

Bear in mind that NOTHING will work here except cash, so don't waste your time telling me it's for your son in New Jersey and your shipper will pick it up. . . LOL.

You may contact me at ohaonghusa at hotmail or call 610-764-5290 for more pics or to view the bike and don't forget to mention that you found this ad on Strike Lightning's Motorcycle Classifieds gogocycles.com..

SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY for this beautiful used motorcycles for sale!... Tired of scammers who send fake checks and say thier "mover" will pick up the bike... these guys crack me up.

Why am I selling this beautifully Restored 1959 Harley Davidson FLH? Health problems and age .. would rather have a bike that starts with a button at this point.
