"look at the old old bike across the street," the owner of coney island said to me at noon today as we chatted about cameras and old things. "gee, thanks!!!!"
a youthful bike afficionado told us that we were looking at a 1937 harley davidson flathead, not gussied up or from a kit, but THE REAL MCCOY.
a few minutes later, a distinguished tall lean cheery gentleman, who had just finished his lunch said "a dollar a shot."
"this is about the bike, not me," refusing personal photos, or even a name. we discussed our old vehicles and how much we loved having, taking care, of, and preserving them. we agreed that we don't own these jewels, there is no need.. we are just caretakers for another generation."
he was riding off to norwalk or somewhere.
For Motorcyle Lovers, It Does Not Get Better Than This!
One of the most beautiful motorcycles I've every laid eyes on is the 1937 Harley Davidson Knucklehead. While watching an episode of American Pickers that featured this classic gem, I was introduced to this beautiful, perfectly manufactured piece of American History. I instantly began to understand why this motorcycle is so treasured among antique bike collectors.
The Knucklehead is so beautiful, that even those who are not motorcycle collectors or fanatics would still see that there was something unique and special about this Harley creation. The Knucklehead comes in different colors, but the red classic Knucklehead is the one that catches most enthusiasts eyes. The bright red, crimson color adds to the excitement of riding down the open highway on your 1937 American classic.
Most Motorcycle collectors would drool at a chance to get their hands on the 1937 Harley Davidson Knucklehead that appeared on an episode of American Pickers. This classic motorcycle goes from between $35,000 to $50,000 and above in good restored condition. However, the value is by far more than just monetary. Just knowing that you have a piece of history in your position is worth more than the monetary price tag that goes with owning one of these treasures.
