1949 Harley-Davidson FL Hydra Glide   at CarsBikesBoats.com in Round Mountain TX
Vehicle Description
1949 Harley Davidson FL Hydra Glide, 1949 was the first year for the hydraulic front forks, and the second year for the Panhead motor. I just bought this from a museum/Harley Dealership in Wisconsin where it has spent the last 15 years. Prior to that, it was with it’s original owner who obviously took loving care of it for 41 years. It has 26,754 actual miles on it. Other than the incorrect 15 year old paint on the tanks and fenders, this old girl has every nut, bolt, and washer that it left the factory with 56 years ago, as well as a few genuine Harley accessories of the time. It was originaly that blue/turquiose color like the hand grips. The original owner repainted it once so the museum went ahead and painted it again when they acquired it. They stripped it to bare metal, and said that it has no bondo or rust. The frame is original paint. They also pulled the top end off to check the motor out and it needed nothing, so they put new rings in it and put it back together. When I saw it in the museum, it hadn’t been started since last fall. After trying to hammer him down for over an hour, I finally told the owner that I would give him his price if he could start it in 5 or less kicks, and of course throw in a free t-shirt. It was purring like a kitten at about 150 RPM in 4 kicks. This bike is expensive and will only get more expensive. You can restore them a dozen times, but they are only original once. This is the most original, nicest unrestored Old Panhead that I have ever come across. Everything works, horn, lights, gen and oil lights, and of course it is still 6 volt. It is the easiest starting kick start bike that I have ever had, which makes me wonder why everybody puts those S&S carbs on these old bikes with that big ugly aircleaner....It will probably be sporting new whitewalls soon if it hangs around long. Call me at 512-784-3659 if you would like to have it come and hang around your garage, and yes, it leaks oil, just like it was designed to do back in 1949. TOO LATE.......It’s off to Sunny Southern California with Steve
