Harley Davidsons at Wheels Through Time museum

Check out the exhaust ports on this 8 valve motor.  It looks to be brand new.  Fred Lange makes a similar one, a repop of the HD oval port racer.   Back then it was called something else…

    The last photo looks like something I saw not too long ago in a parking lot in Victorville, CA.

    Eight valves on a twin are always very impressive.

    What is the story of the picture with the eight riders with one down? A race track crash, a shootout, or what. You can’t put up a photo like that without a caption.

      I’ll make up a caption: “A scene from the Benjamin Button movie. Here Brad Pitt lays on the side of the road after racing and crashing his HD against the dreaded Indians. The scene was cut from the movie during final editing.” how’s that? 😉 Actually, I have no idea. It was an old framed photo on the wall at the museum.
