Chicken coop finds 1940 Knucklehead and a 1947 Knucklehead

 I never thought the day would come when I would unearth not 1 but 2 old knuckleheads that have been sitting since the early 1960's.. It feels like a dream from the moment I got a call on the shop phone "Hi Jeremiah can you get my 1915 Indian running"? I responded I am sure I can I can make anything run, I would love to have the opportunity. "ok sounds good I also have 2 other bikes you may be interested in looking at a 1940 knucklehead and a 1947 Knucklehead.

I respond oh really whats the story on them? "They were my fathers and he had them a very long time" ok I ask can I come see them? "Of course here is the address" At this point I think someone is playing a big joke on me I jump in my old truck. 

The rest is history I meet David and the story begins, my life changes I am now a proud owner of an old 1940 EL knucklehead that has sat for 50 years and has the coolest story which will come soon.

It gets even better I get to restore Davids untouched all 1947 Knucklehead that was his fathers. It hasn't been touched since 1962... I got her running after 50 years OLD HARLEYS never die. STAY TUNED more to come as well as some first time run videos!!

PEace Love and HAppines and old Harleys
