Thread: 1936 1000 ohv

    Default 1936 1000 ohv

    Hi- what should you expect to pay for a 1936 Knucklehead - 90% complete- mechanically worn?- I have seen prices for restored bikes of this vintage go for ridiculous money- not helpful for the hobby restorer and biker.

    NilsR,
    The ebay listing shows a '36 parts bike in V-Twin frame and no title. Didn't meet the reserve with a high bid of US$60,200.

    $10k to 20k "might" get you a motor with a title only.

    A decent original frame is at least $15,000. One sold in Wauseon this year for a reported $22,000. I'd be willing to bet that a complete engine for a 36 would sell for $20,000 on ebay. I don't know where you would find a project bike for 10-20,$.

    Original restored frame (if you could fine one) plus a motor after rebuild with rebuilt 32E and M-5, with some luck 40 to 50K.
    Sheet metal restored including tanks with original gas caps and shutoffs etc etc $10K.
    Original 1-2 year only springer and trans after rebuild another 10K.
    One year only front and rear brakes, brake light switch 5-10K.
    Almost mandatory repop everything from tires, exhaust, recovered seat, wiring, chains, and a shoebox of Colony hardware $5K.
    Cycleray, 9 bolt, complete dash, brake lever clutch pedal brake pedal oil tank, oil and fuel lines, floorboards, primary, front fender light, toolbox 3 Rivet Ch Grd, and a bunch of more stuff I forgot another easy 10 to 15K. Comes out to 80K on the low side.
    Then throw in your paint, plating labor etc etc etc. Easy 100K. Unless you have the stuff laying around and you can do your own bodywork, paint, welding etc.
    Good luck, 46EL
