I have decided it is time to let my beautifully restored Harley Davidson EL go. It was a 3+ year restoration project and was finished approx. 3-1/2 years ago. I have ridden it on occasion since. This bike runs perfect. Two full choke prime kicks when cold is all it takes to start it. Runs super smooth and straight. Only the best people in the vintage restoration world worked on this bike including the motor, transmission, painting, plating ect.
Most of the people are AMCA members and judges. The bike was not judged, but would be considered period modified because of the handlebar set up and the paint choice. I am sure it would score in the high 90+. I am a 30+ year member of the AMCA.
The speedometer stopped working at the mileage shown, I have replaced the broken inner speedometer cable. The motorcycle has approx. 750 total miles since it's restoration.
