I really like this photo I took a few days ago of my 1936 classic Harley EL Knucklehead on a stunning New England autumn afternoon. First year Harley production street OHV, first year Knucklehead, and first year recirculating oil for Harley.
I first saw this classic 1936 Harley Knucklehead (and photographed it for a feature in American Iron Magazine) at a swap meet in 1991, shortly after it was rebuilt and put back on the road. I lost track of the bike over the years and was then fortunate enough to buy it years later from the man who rebuilt and maintained it for so many years.
I took this photo a couple of days ago here in Connecticut to show off the bike and some terrific New England autumn colors. It is pretty much as I first saw and photographed it 23 years ago. I have since replaced the reproduction speedometer for a rare one-year only 1936 Harley speedometer. I added the American flag and pole, and just a few days ago I added the reproduction Hanson Sportshield roll up windshield.
I have put several thousand miles on this bike in the 7 years since I purchased it. I wish all my classic motorcycles started as easily and ran as smoothly as this first year Knucklehead does.
