90% complete disassembled project bike in good condition. 

This motorcycle was found as a rolling basket at a swap meet in Minnesota in about 2000. It was purchased as a project by the current owner. He disassembled the entire motorcycle and inventoried the status of the parts. He salvaged what was usable and purchased reproduction parts or original parts as needed. He obtained a title from the state of Minnesota. The seller has run out of time and is ready to have the next owner to finish the project. The Harley JDCB is listed as a 74-inch motorcycle.

Check the pictures carefully. There is a great mix of parts there. All the items pictured go on the bike. No other parts are available except the original tank.




All of the sheet metal was cleaned and painted in primer to protect from rust pending final fit and paint.

Sheet Metal

Sheet metal is a mix of original and reproduction. New gas tank, tail light and floorboards. Original fenders, chain guard, battery box, primary cover, and tail light bracket. The original tank will go with the project.
