Dirty 1948 Harley Panhead Motorcycle

Harley Panheads were built and sold as 1948 through 1965 model years. The 1948 (like this one) was the last big twin Harley with a factory Springer front end, and the 1965 (first and last Panheads) was the first Harley Big Twin with an electric starter and 12 volt electrics.

Here is a mostly correct and original 1948 Panhead and quick explanation of how it works.
