Wow, that's beautiful!
I've had my Featherlite toy hauler on the market for around 3 years and had a few lowball offers but finally met a guy who really wanted the "SURV" model Featherlite made for 2006 and 2007 and he made me an offer I couldn't refuse. Originally he offered a nice Bridgeport series 2 EZ Trak prototype learning mill in very good condition and he was throwing in a 2016 dump trailer nicely decked out with Alcoas etc but I guess it was taking me too long to unload my household stuff from the RV so he offered this 32 Harley VL with the Bridgeport instead of the dump trailer. He has 13 years and $35k cash plus ton of hours combing the SoCal swapmeets scrounging up misc parts. It's a Cali titled 32 VL with 34 fenders and 34 size wheels and fatter tires but also came with a set of correct 32 tires and wheels. All rebuilt in 2011 ridden 50 miles since full new build and has been sitting since 2011 in his living room, until today !!
I'm not sure what the heck I'm gonna do with it but today I'm just hauling it home through the desert to Arizona
Wow, that's beautiful!
Now I must hurry on... for there they go, and I am their leader!
I am NOT a Harley guy at all. Like at all. But that my friend is a beautiful classic. Love it!

Way too many past bikes and builds to list. I won't bore you. Questions? Just ask.
Nice looking Flathead Harley!
Been close to 50 years since I last rode my 1948 Panhead Harley. It takes a bit of practice to learn riding one with that foot operated clutch and hand shifter. Mine came with the standard 4 speed gearbox, plus an optional sidecar version with 3 forward gears and 1 for reverse. Be sure to allow yourself a lot of stopping distance. Once you get all that old, tired iron moving it takes a long time to get it stopped!
Be sure and get metal clips on the heel of your boots. Take it from someone who rode one.
I'm ok with the suicide clutch and hand shifter but it has the throttle on the right and the ignition retard / advance control on a left twistgrip
Chances are high I will not ride it let alone start it heck even the plunger oil system seems crazy to me
These have no recirculating oil system you pull a plunger in the gas / oil tank and that charges the oil pump and every 75 miles (I guess lol ???) you recharge using the plunger. The excess oil in the bilge of the motor must then be drained using the spring loaded waste oil dump
It sure make me appreciate the modern bikes we all ride today !
I found a company in Indiana that makes awesome hydraulic lowering flat bed trailers and I want to buy one or two of them and thats what I planned to do when I sold the toy hauler so I'll probably sell or trade the Harley off toward that means

Keep from wearing your boots out when trying to stop.
