This 1920 Harley Davidson Model F motorcycle with Sidecar was acquired in New Zealand where it operated throughout its life. The bike was appraised as A3 by the vintage car club of NZ. The motorcycle had a service industry life and parts replaced/repaired to continue its operation. Carbon Garage (AKL) inspected the bike and coated/fogged it prior to being shipped to the USA in 2018. It was a fully road legal bike prior to being shipped to Florida and put in storage. It still runs perfectly after shipment as shown in the video.
The majority of these motorcycles were used for rural delivery in New Zealand which had many unpaved roads during the period. The bike has historic photos published in the car club periodical.
98% of the bike is original except a few parts like the seat/tank but are clearly obvious from the photos.
All the documentation will be shipped to the buyer upon receipt of funds including import documents and registration papers from NZ.
The side car chassis is correct 1920 but the car itself appears to be from a later year.
No real idea
Re-sprayed green with original paint visible underneath. Probably an older restoration from its NZ owner. Paint is in very good shape with few blemishes if any.
The tank/chain guard have been replaced with a period matching stainless steel fabrication. The newly fabricated pieces re exact copies and well fit.
Fully operational engine and gearbox. Unknown when the last rebuild was completed. The bike fires right up and is a good ride through the gears.
