This is a cold start of a 1956 Harley Davidson KHK. The K model was the precurssor to the Sporster and in fact the Sporster was introduced in 1957. This fine machine has 29,000 miles showing on the odometer.
It was recently removed from a storage garage in Colorado where it sat since 1973.I have the picturesof the original Barn fresh find into my truck./MrClassicMotorcycle
I changed the fluids, added a battery, cleaned the carb and the gas tank (varnish) and it started on the first ignition kick!
I took a bath with her today and polished it up a bit. This is an original paint machine! Look and listen to her now and watch her go!
