Original Harley-Davidson Factory – What Happened To The Wooden Shed?

Here’s another interesting post from one of my favorite motorcycle blogs – Sex And Harleys. Many of us have heard about this shed, and perhaps even about how it disappeared, but I thought this article was worth reading and sharing here.

So, did you ever wonder what happened to the original “factory” –  a 10 x 15-foot wooden shed with the words “Harley-Davidson Motor Company” crudely scrawled on the door? While there are a number of reproductions and copies of the original wooden shed, the real one is gone.

We hear tell the original wooden shed was carefully taken apart and stored in one of the larger factories. But one day, an enterprising workman at the AMF Harley plant, thinking he was doing something positive collected together and threw out all the old lumber stacked in the More on Original Harley-Davidson Factory – What Happened To The Wooden Shed?

1936 Knucklehead rendering on back

This first edition Classic American Iron 1936 Harley EL Knucklehead design celebrates perhaps Harley’s most significant (and best looking) motorcycle. The heather gray body has black Raglan long sleeves for the “Old Time” look. The front features a small Classic American Iron logo, and the back is a top notch rendering of a 1936 Harley Knucklehead drawn by Yours Truly. We plan to release other designs featuring other classic American motorcycles if the demand for this first one is high enough.

The shirts come in Men’s Medium through XXL (slightly higher price for the XXL model due to higher cost to produce this shirt). Supplies are limited, but we can always make more. Shipping is $5.00 for up to four shirts in the same order to the same shipping address. Order yours today. Send checks or money orders (made out to TAM Communications) to:

Dusting off a 1967 Harley Shovelhead Motorcycle


Back in the early 1990’s my brother bought a 1967 Harley from our dad.  The Shovelhead was a runner, probably the best in his collection, and it didn’t have any issues for several years.  He rode that old Harley quite a bit (as did I before he bought it) but he didn’t put much time into the care and maintenance that we all know these older bikes require.  To make a long story short, it got to the point where the bike wasn’t running well at all, and he ended up parking it under a tarp in the back of his garage.  I estimate that was around 10 years ago.  Last week, I asked him if I could come pick it up and get it running for him. Above are some pictures of the bike just out of the trailer after I got home from his house.  The bike had literally not seen daylight in 10 years. I’ll be back with more posts and pictures as I clean it up and get it running.
