1948 Harley Davidson EL



This 1948 Harley Davidson EL Panhead is a survivor. Purchased by
the first owner new after his return from the war, this 1948 Harley EL is ready
for a new curator. The motorcycle comes with pictures detailing its adventures
through the years with the one owner. There has been very little change to this
motorcycle over the years and it has only accumulated 57,291 miles. In the
early seventies the chrome on the motorcycle was painted black. Good chrome
exists under the paint which has now started to chip. The paint flicks right
off revealing the original chrome as pictured in the original photographs.
Check out the air cleaner. Any idea what the owner did in the war?

The paint on this motorcycle appears to be original paint. All
sheet metal and accessories also appear to be original on this incredible
survivor. Fluids flushed and engine serviced, this motorcycle starts on first
ignition kick and idles right out. Smooth and sure through the gears, it is
time for this machine to show proudly on the next ride or show.

57,291 miles on a working odometer

black that was painted over the chrome in the 70’s. It is in excellent

Sheet metal:
Sheet metal is all original. No dents or dings to speak of. Tanks are complete
and secure. No blisters underneath and minimum rust inside.

Chrome: All chrome was painted black for some
reason which has protected the chrome over the years. The black paint is now
easily flaking off.We are currently removing all of the black paint from the areas that were chromed. This reveals old chrome with some pitting and flaking also.
