Hoping to build it as my Motorcycle Cannonball motorcycle, I bought a mix and match early Harley several months ago. It was a blend of 1914 engine, 1916 transmission, late teens frame, fork and tin and later wheels. We have followed this on the classic Harley forum side of this site.
We finally got the bike shipped from the left coast to the right one (ahem!) and with the help of my pal Dave Fusiak, we began to disassemble it to see just what we were dealing with.
As suspected, it is a mix and match bike. But it was all I had to work with to get ready for the Motorcycle More on Classic Harley Jigsaw Puzzle or Parts Donor
After buying and paying for this classic Harley it finally arrived at the American Iron Magazine offices in Stamford, CT today.
I sure do look big next to that little motorcycle. And no way I would ever survive a 3300 mile on that seat. Time to start looking for a Harley seat big enough to give me some comfort on the Motorcycle Cannonball Run in More on My Old Motorcycle Made It Here Finally – Classic Harley Forum Update!

After waiting over a month since buying it, I just heard my 1914 Harley Twin has been picked up in California by my trucker and is finally on its way to me (although I understand it will be spending Christmas in Texas) in Connecticut.
Once it gets to me in Connecticut I’ll be able to look it over and start to figure out what I need to do to get it ready for the Motorcycle Cannonball Run in September 2010. Sure looks pretty good to me.
