There was a time a machine as well restored as this might sell for close to $100,000, but based on the recent ebay auction that might be in the past. At least for now.
One has to question why this rare and potent machine was not snatched up at this price. Was it something about this particular bike, the listing, the seller or the economy? Whatever it was we have to wonder how it might effect the sales prices of other legendary Harley Two Cam JDHs going forward.
You can tell this is a “Two Cam” Harley motor by a number of visual clues. Perhaps the most obvious is the peanut shaped cam chest cover, andother are the larger and meatier looking lifter assembly, and a third is the cut out areas of the valve towers.
