This machine is restored from a mostly all original motorcycle, using the original engine, original magneto, original 3/4″ Schebler carburetor, and most of the original frame and fork.

These super-rare early Harleys have become very desirable and sought after. This 1910 model has a single cylinder engine with 3-1/8″ bore and 3-1/2″ stroke, yielding 7.07 cubic inches(116cc). It produces 7 horsepower and uses a belt drive designed for racing.
