    Greetings:

    A buddy of mine sent me this link about a 1913 SWEET MACHINE in the Northlands and thought it worth shareing.

    A 1913 V-Twin Harley-Davidson Motorcycle in amazing condition. One of three known to exist. Love the gas-headlights

    This bud rides some old thing called a Square 4. Don't tell him I said this but it sure is sweet itself. Trying to get him in here to share his own pics of it.

    Later on
    Further on

    T-Ray in Oklahoma

    Still new here hope this works

    I don't know if any one noticed the V-Twin putt-putt cadence, but it sounded like at least 4 galloping horses as he was rolling on the throttle. :p

    Love those push rods and rockers bumping up and down...the mechanical busy work happening while riding must have been real cool, adding to the sensations...! :57:

    Does anyone know what was the wire loop handle he was playing with on the right side of the bike...? Thank you for sharing...that was a great video! :D

    thanks for that, really shows how then and now things have not changed much , as Far as upgrading your bike with new Moco features , such as the original owner did here by adding the rear brake that was introduced on new 1915 model and the Moco made a retro kit for 1913 and up models , and it took 13 yrs to see front brakes on a HD the 1928 J model ,and they did the same thing they had a kit that would let you put a front brake on a 1926 J..

    I was wondering about that too. The engine sounded deeper when it was pulled out, could it have been some sort of compression release or exhaust bypass?

    I could tell it was Canadian within 30 seconds, a wee bit of duct tape on the handle bars. "If they don't find you handsome they better find you handy" :D
