I do not know the seller, but I have been offered what my pal Jim Babchak calls a “ham & eggs” Harley project made up of mostly real Harley parts but from different years and sometimes models. As best I can tell, this particular one is a mid to late 1920s Harley JE.The seller, who has been collecting parts and building this bike for several years, tells me he believes it has a 1925 Harley JE motor and a 1927 Harley J chassis.
I note he has left the clincher rims and tires on the bike and did not add a front brake (first offered by Harley in 1928).I hope to pick up this classic Harley project in the next week or so and will then have a better idea what I am getting into. The seller tells me most of the bike is genuine Harley with some high quality reproduction fenders and a few other bits. Also it has what he believed is a Linkert carburetor from a newer Harley WL.
No plans yet on what I am going to do with this bike, but my options are open. If I keep this up I will know these Harley J models pretty well.
