Forum Help? Please Identify My Old Harley Engine Components

Way out of my league on this early or pre teen Harley parts but trying to learn fast. So now that the old motorcycle is in my garage I can study it and take photos to post here. I need some help in identifying just what I have purchased so I can plan accordingly to prepare for the Motorcycle Cannonball Run in September.

What I’d like to do is post a few photos here and ask people to help identify them. You can easily respond to these blogs entries by clicking on Comment and following the easy instructions to reply. Whatever you write will appear under the original post as a comment.

If this system works I will continue to post photos of the various parts of this mixed but classic Harley.

What did ‘we’ get you into here? There are so many new (?) and different things about these old machines. I am really enjoying learning even more about this bike, even tho I had a few weeks to look at it, it seems like I missed a lot. I am really happy you got the bike now, so we can really get to know the bike.

Agreed. I’d much rather figure it out BEFORE I do anything foolish to harm this old bike or any of the pieces.

I am not much on old bikes but isn’t that a 1915 HD 11F. I think before that date the bikes had a two speed rear hub. Fossil
