old Harley Panheads for sale by owner and then post your opinion on this good looking ol' gal!
The old motorcycle's frame has no issues or mods, numbered neck lock oem, oem oil pump, OEM sheet metal, three (3) piece fenders, Cycle Ray headlight bucket, Delco Remy Horn, Monroe Shock, fuel shut-off works, restored speedometer, correct speedometer cable housing, distributor advances and retards, kicks through with good compression.
I see no repairs to either the engine or the motor cases and the transmission is correct date code and also no repairs.
"PO" owner stated that the old Harley for sale
has been sitting for about nine years after being abandoned during a restoration that apparently was too involved for the previous owner who when he realized that he forgot to land the dampener (included) he lost interest in the project altogether.
Anything on the Pan that looks shiny and new is either reproduction or NOS according to the previous owner.
The rims are reproductions with numbers.
The rear fender is single divot chain cutaway that has a slot cut out maybe for a siren? I'm guessing as I am not an expert.
This Old gal has some nice bones and other than a few minor chrome pieces and the cylinders; she is all here.
I confess that pictures of the motorcycle are not exactly professional and some are obviously lacking in sharpness but if there is a particular part, piece or view that you want to see more clearly, please feel free to let me know what it is that you would like to see and I will do my best to photograph it.
Please review the pictures!
The 1948 Harley Panhead
is a treasure of an old motorcycle for sure!
I am fairly certain that I have forgotten to list some things, but I assure you that if that is the case that I did not do so intentionally.
