Video: Check Out This Harley-Davidson-Powered, Custom-Built Motorcycle From the '50s

If you worked as an engineer for General Motors back in the 1950s, what would you do in your spare time? If happened to be transmission engineer Arthur Gunther, you would have built yourself a motorcycle from the ground-up.

Power comes from a Harley-Davidson single mated to a custom-fabricated six-speed transmission.

Yes, it is really cool. I like Harley's good smoothness of movement and comparative safety. Now it is quite a rarity, when a motorcycle is stable and yet very powerful. In addition, it looks quite brutal. Although, to be honest, it takes a lot of time to take care of it. It breaks rarely, but sometimes even so, the exhaust pipe is often clogged and you have to change it. Therefore, keep it in mind when buying. By the way, it is also important to get clear information about it, so I personally read here about various new products and parts, and in general everything about Harley Davidson , it is very accessible and clearly described about this motorcycle, such as the same exhaust pipe or engine oil. I have a Harley for 6 years and I'm not going to change as much as I can and will ride as long as I am completely satisfied with it.
