I last rode this classic Harley Panhead 4 or 5 years ago. Then I parked it and have not done much with this bike since then, other than pull the battery to use in another old Harley. After a few weeks of working on this bike today I installed a new battery, oil in the transmission and oil bag, and some new gas and it fired on the first kick. Amazing!
I plan on continuing to work on this bike and to ride it to Milwaukee for Harley’s 110th anniversary party the end of August – a month and a half from now. I will be leading the classic bike section of the American Iron Magazine Honor Ride sponsored by GEICO Insurance. For more information please click on Honor Ride.
