1940 Harley UL Flathead

Hank from Seminole, Florida, United States made available these photos of his 1940 Harley UL Flathead which is a true classic motorcycle.

Hank: "Here are some pics of my 1940 Harley Big Twin UL Flathead. I know it's not a bobber, you decide if it's right for your web site. Bike's been completed a couple of years now, these are the most recent pics. I do all the work in my garage (shop) including wheel lacing and truing, body and paint, mechanical and electrical. The only thing I farm out is the machine work (bore job, valve seats). Bike is ridden often locally. Hope you enjoy it."

Well, Hank, she ain't exactly a bobber, but she's oldschool, and she's gorgeous!
