You are bidding on a 1949 Harley Panhead motor that was put into an OEM VL frame. The 4 speed transmission is all OEM early box with a ratchet top jockey shifter. The springer fork is an OEM VL springer that was chromed years ago and still looks great. The frame has not been raked. The only modifications were to fit the motor into it. If you google the process you will see how much work is involved. The primary is a phase three 1 1/2 inch belt drive with a primo pro clutch. Shifter handle is a fab Kevin stainless drilled with speed holes. The motor is basically stock and was rebuilt by a local gray beard. If the motor has 1000 miles it's a lot. The carb is a linkert M74B with a custom made bird catcher made from japan. The mag is a Morris G5. Matching case numbers with an unmolested vin block. I have NY paper in my name. The oil bag is custom made out of aluminum. Seat is a Xian Leather seat on a bass seat pan. The bars are custom 304 stainless bends. The ex pipes are 304 stainless. Floor boards are OEM JD with a JD rocker clutch. Rear fender is a wassell ribbed. The tank is a wassel banana tank with the pingel petcock moved to the rear. Rear wheel is an 18 wrapped in Pirelli scorpion MT90 120/80-18 the front is a 21 90/90-21. Rims and hubs are powder coated black with Bucanin stainless spokes. Rear hub is OEM star front is a spool. Rear brake is a late model Panhead juice drum that was drilled to match the rest of the bike. 
This bike was built over the course of five years and was done approx 6 or 7 years ago. The sole purpose of it was to be a show bike. Was ridden very little since completion. It has suffered a few nicks and scratches from the garage but is in overall outstanding shape. 
The bike has graced the pages of Iron Horse issue 123 2009, Iron Works issue Jan/Feb 2009, planet muscle and bodybuilding Sep 2011, Ink and Iron Aug 2009, godspeed hard and soft cover coffee table book and was featured in Choppahead vol 3 video. 
The bike was also rented by Kenneth Cole for a photo shoot for their Vintage Black collection. The ads appeared in Maxim, GQ, People, Esquire and Playboy in 2010. 
I am selling this so I can move on with other projects. I am in no need to get rid of it so no low ball offers. If you are looking at this bike then you will see all the work that was put into it. Not one penny was spared. It has won numerous awards and attracts a ton of attention whenever it is taken out. 
I will ship worldwide and help with shipping where I can. I require a 500. USC deposit at end of auction and final payment in the form of a bank check. The bike WILL NOT be released to the new owner or shipping company until all funds are cleared. All shipping fees will be the responsibility of the buyer. Possible delivery within 100 miles for an addition fee. Please look at pictures and ask questions. 

I will only take trades for Knuckleheads and Big Twin Flatheads. I will consider partial trades for parts lots with mentioned models. 
I can not store any cars so the option is out. Thanks for all the offers!
