1936 Harley VLH Rebuilt For Motorcycle Cannonball

Working with the great folks at RetroCycle in Boonton, NJ we have finished rebuilding my 1936 Harley VLH in preparation for the up-coming Motorcycle Cannonball in September.

Motorcycle Cannonball 1936 Harley VLH from Adventure Power’s Team American Iron

Here is a teaser photo of the bike pretty much ready to go. This is my spare engine, which is pretty much broken in now. So I will swap out to my competition engine and keep this one in the support truck “just in case…”

You can read all about it in the pages of American Iron Magazine, as we have been following the build for several months.

Every single nut and bolt has been off this bike for inspection, redoing or replacing. Every single one. It is mostly original stock spec with modern Continental tires and an upgraded 12-volt ignition system. For more info on this amazing 12-volt, solid state generator system please contact Robb at Retrocycle.
