1929 Harley JDH 2-Cam Classic Motorcycle Project for American Iron Magazine

We at American Iron Magazine are planning on redoing this “bitsa bike” old Harley 2 cam as a magazine project bike in the next year.

These photos of the classic Harley are in “as purchased” condition.  Not the incorrect front fender, British dual-leading shoe front brake, incorrect headlight and handlebars, home made exhaust, funky saddlebags and more.

The air cleaner is correct, as is the shifter assembly, forks, rear and side stands, and frame.

The genuines old Harley dash has been modified with toggle switches in place of the keys. Center toggle is the  ignition switche, the two outside toggles are for lights. The handlbars seem to be modified boardtracker bars.

Extra brake and running lights and unusual saddlebag mounting

We like the idea of extra lights in the back of the bike as these classic old Harleys came with a very small tail/brake light. HOWEVER, these old Harley turn signals just look wrong on this vintage Harley. They must come off, but we are considering adding small bullet lights under the seat using the same wiring already on the bike for these lights.

We expect this project to be in the pages of American Iron Magazine sometime late in 2016. In the mean time we are open to suggestions on what and how to re-do this vintage Harley.
