Description
Lot #2506 - Commonly referred to as a "strap tank" because of how the oil tank is secured to the gas tank with nickel-plated steel straps, this 1907 Harley-Davidson Strap Tank was produced during the legendary Milwaukee firm's third year in volume production. It is one of 150 '07 cycles built and is powered by a correct 27cid single cylinder engine. Originally delivered new to Los Angeles for use by the city police department, it spent much of its life in California except for a stint in the hands of a New York collector some 30 years ago. Like most machines of its vintage, it has some stories to tell. In particular, it was stolen in the mid-'70s when it was in pieces awaiting a previous restoration. Justice prevailed, and the cycle was subsequently purchased by Otis Chandler, who set things right by obtaining many of its misplaced original parts with help from early Harley-Davidson specialist Stu Munger. No expense was spared, and the results speak for themselves. The leather belt drive pulleys, crankcase, handlebars and idler/tensioner brackets are chrome plated and complement the Renault gray frame with red pinstriping. The gas tank bears the Harley-Davidson logo in real gold leaf foil. This is one of the most desirable Harley-Davidson bikes on the planet. **SOLD ON BILL OF SALE ONLY**
