In honor of this week’s Daytona Bike Week roadraces, I thought it would be fun to share a rare Harley roadracer from the late 1920s. Here is Paul Weyers on what might be the only original Harley DAR factory road racer.
This purpose built classic Harley racer was sent to Europe and was quite successful. It was a special built one-off motorcycle featuring a 45 c.i. overhead valve DAH motor.
This motorcycle is built around a 45″ DAH hillclimber overhead valve engine .This was Harley’s first bike to have a recirculating oil pump. Paul won many races in Europe on this motorcycle
In looking at this photo I have to wonder why the factory left the cylinder tool box on the I-beam forks, but no lights. Also note the unusual foot clutch mechanism.
