1948 Harley-Davidson Bobber Custom The left side case is actually 1970 - not '83 and that's not the real mileage. • Bike has very few miles on it. • 1983 Is when I first built the bike and titled it in texas. • The engine is a 74 inch "FL" • There is an alternator in the left case (I incorrectly stated there was a generator) • 12 volt electrical system • The cases are mismatched - The throttle side case is 1948 and the other case is 1983 • Front and Rear wheels are tubeless spoked rims • 4-speed ratchet lid transmission • VDL belt drive • Headlight glass is from John Deere Tractor The original builder built the '48 from all Harley-Davidson parts. He wanted a true Bobber that was a mish-mash of parts similar to what would have been customized after World War II. He wanted the old-school vibe but also something that would stop and also be able to ride safely at night. He remembered the 1989 Sturgis Drinking permit and I think he wants it back! 4-speed Ratchet type transmission Tank Shift with "suicide" clutch works correctly 1200cc engine PanHead heads Bottom end has been modified from 1983 Harley with a newer generator and electrics Air Cleaner was originally a HD siren S&S super carburator on left side
