What a beautiful piece of machinery and they certainly got the colours right. There is a certain beauty of things designed in that era that we no longer find in modern times... the Art Deco influence.
I had a springer Harley with a rigid frame in my youth and they are not for the easily scared riders. Hitting a bump at speed and the back end will step out dramatically.It's basically a pogo stick suspension. That knuckle head didin't even have any hydraulic shock on the forks ... just a friction plate design with wing nuts to adjust damping.

The bike is gorgeous, I would really like to see more of the gate, the old school iron work is amazing.

If you get a chance the museum is worth seeing. All the old iron runs and the owner will sometimes start one up if you ask. I also know he rides them around the parking lot on random occasions.

I really enjoyed it.

I was there about 5 years ago.
