Not a replica, no the real deal built in the thirties to keep them early model Knuckles behind in the gravel dust.
My good friend Perry sent me a link to a database on the www containing a bunch of old motorcycle photos.
Among them I found two very very cool pictures showing California built Harley J model cutdowns, both pictured in 1934.
One of the bikes have taken a hit to the rear, ouch, lets just hope it got repaired.
The bike with the damage have a very cool detail, side mounted licence plate years and years before the choppers where even thought about (and they do often sport side mounted plates, dont they?)
