    Steve Slocombe pointed out that there may be some non-Harley alternatives, if you're not firm on having an American bike. A 50s / 60s British bike, or a 60s / 70s Japanese bike, can sometimes be...

    This past summer I had my '25 JD out for a run on a hot day and then had it idling in the driveway for a bit while I adjusted the carb. A few minutes after I shut it off I heard the sound of liquid...

    It's a no-name spotlight, unless there is some marking on the inside. A few years ago my dad sold the family home and we spent three months cleaning out 60 years of car parts and other interesting...

    Thanks, I communicated with Cam about the battery box awhile back.

    I like that picture of a 25 - it's in my files also. You can't beat a good original photo for getting those little details...

    Thanks, it has a great look, for sure. You're right about those '25s. Some one year only parts, some shared with pre-'25 models and some shared with post '25.

    My bike is pretty correct, although...

    Wow, I hadn't thought of it that way. That's quite a comfort sacrifice just to be able to carry a passenger.

    Rajah buddy seat

    Can anyone shed any light on these seats? Is this a JD era accessory? Is it a child's seat? It seems to mount in front of the rider's seat and be hinged to flip up.

    Never confirmed it, but the EU-4 is from the period. The Henderson parts manual lists Splitdorf for 1914, along with a note that says Bosch and Berling might also be used.

    This is from...

    In 1925, Harley changed to a smaller wheel. We'd call it 20" as it takes a 3.85 x 20 clincher tire. In old terms it was called a 27 x 3.5 tire. The rack on the back of my 26 Harley LT sidecar...

    I'm wiring up my 25 JD for a first start. I see that the 26 and later wiring diagrams include an "automatic cutout" between the battery and the generator but I don't see that on the 1925 wiring...
