Friday Forum Foraging: A $100,000 Harley-Davidson

A pristine 86-year-old Harley-Davidson with only 28 miles on the clock.

Today's Friday Forum Foraging feature comes to you from MO's very own classifieds section, and the most expensive motorcycle I could find currently listed: a 1937 Harley-Davidson Knucklehead EL in which the seller is asking for a cool $110,000.

Yes, this is a shameless plug for MO's revamped classifieds section, but it's for good reason – the MO classifieds are free. That's right, if you have a motorcycle you want to sell, and you want to reach a nationwide audience to sell it, it'll cost you absolutely nothing to post your bike here on MO.

Take this Knucklehead, for example. Located in Pasadena, Maryland, this 86-year-old stunner has gone through a complete restoration and it shows. This is one clean Harley and it's clear not a single nut or bolt has been overlooked. As you look through the photos, you won't see a single spec of dirt, dust, grease, or oil. Part of that is due to the immaculate work done to bring this bike back (and probably beyond) its former glory, but part of that is also due to the fact that the seller states the bike only has 28 miles on the odometer.

If you're a die-hard Harley collector and need to add this to your stable, see the full ad here and use the contact feature at the bottom (or call him at the number listed).

If this knucklehead is not your cup-o-tea, or you're looking for something else, give the MO classifieds a gander and see if your next bike is waiting for you.

    I would take the “only 28 miles” statement with a grain of salt. Used car dealers used to back up the speedometer’s all the time in the old days. This would be easy to roll back or replace the unit. But like PT Barnum said, “there’s one born every minute”.

      True, I don't know the history of the odometer, but it's still a nice restoration. At least judging by the photos.
