1939 Harley Knucklehead

Another post to celebrate the 1939 Harley Davidson EL Knucklehead



















Ida, girlfriend (to become wife) of Hans, the first owner of my 39 Knuckle. Pic taken summer of 1939, very soon the bike had to flee off to Sweden due to the WWII. 


Bike and owner after the war is ended.


At the petrol station soon after the war has ended. Check out that V for victory painted to the wall, this was quite commonly done across the country by partisans.


Hans and EL, one of many fishing trips in to the mountains.


EL still with its OP from 39!

Out riding










A brief looking back at may, a month with lots of weather, mostly shit weather and even snow, well some riding took place still. Finally got my old Henderson pulled out of hibernation. I had almost forgotten what a great ride that bike is going at the correct pace along country roads.

We, my Henderson and I entered a motorcycle exhibition when we visited C&G, we won nothing, we where most likely not customized enough, and yes we rode there, no to trailer queens.

Having parked at home by the end of this great day,heaven opened and down came a bunch of snow, check out the Henderson`s Pearson seat.

Local heroes!



Two local heroes from K land (K registration was used back in the days in my region), picture from late forties / early fifties. I enjoyed to see this 1925 model Harley being so well taken care of, even at such an age it look really sharp.

Evil Eye Cherry go public!


Last year during autumn I got visit from a new Norwegian Car / Motorcycle magazine - "Cruiser". This is a publication run by one man, Ole Nybakken who have done a great job and managed to keep his baby afloat for more than three years now.
Ole wanted to include a couple of my rides in his magazine, first out my WL bob job, "Evil Eye Cherry", I feel he did well with his presentation?


On the front page!

So, last week - as if I didnt know better, I got myself an other old Harley Davidson. This one with a sidecar. The whole lot is a project, that is for sure, but still it have made me dream, hence this post with sidecar outfit photos from yesterdaze.

New toy!























Yes I know some of those photos might have been posted before, I lost track a long time ago, sorry for that.
