1924 Harley JD – One Of My “New” Current Projects

Call me nuts for taking on more project bikes than I possibly have time for. Or call me smart and/or lucky for having stashed away several very interesting classic motorcycles as past or future projects.

Well, after a long winter, I had set my sights on sorting out and changing some of paint on my Too Red, Dual-Carb 1949 Panhead bobber this Spring.
