In the early 1900s childhood friends William S Harley and Arthur Davidson started trialling powered transport designs, with their first production of a basic motorised bicycle completed in 1903. Through tireless hard work and ruggedness, they continued work on improving the design and manufacturing of their products.
From a largely single cylinder design of the early 1900’s they moved to the twin, though unsuccessful in their first iteration in 1909. A much more successful return to the twin beckoned in 1911 when a redesign of the inlet valves took place, changing from automatic ‘atmospheric’ (as seen on the singles) to mechanical inlets and production took off.
Known by the nickname 'pocket valve', the famous 'F-head' engine was offered in 61ci and 74ci capacities (1,000cc and 1,200cc respectively) and would remain in production for the next 20 years. The Harley single's transmission, direct drive by leather belt was still utilised initially, though it wasn’t optimal for the additional stresses of sidecars and was welcomely upgraded to a two-speed chain drive with a clutch in 1914. Later that same year a conventional, three-speed, sliding-gear transmission with 'step starter' was introduced on the top-of-the-range version of the twin which, with full electrical equipment, was listed as the Model JD. Periodically revised and up dated, the Model J had gained a front brake, stronger fork and pumped lubrication by the time production ceased in 1929.
Sold with both solo and sidecar versions, the J series of 1924 featured the introduction of the JE, fitted with a high-performance race motor featuring alloy pistons. For 1924 the J series was the most sold model in the Harley Davidson line up. The sturdy 989 cc (84x89mm) machine became a popular choice for riders all over the world, as well as law enforcement, postal services and other government bodies. You could even have one any colour you wanted, as long as it was Olive green!
This motorcycle was part of a private collection in Brisbane where it underwent some works and was sold to another collector in Country Victoria about 10 years ago. The current owner purchased the JE about 5 years ago. Some light reconditioning and a good service should bring this bike back to full operation.
This motorcycle is sold unregistered.
