For Motorcyle Lovers, It Does Not Get Better Than This!

One of the most beautiful motorcycles I've every laid eyes on is the 1937 Harley Davidson Knucklehead.  While watching an episode of American Pickers that featured this classic gem, I was introduced to this beautiful, perfectly manufactured piece of American History.  I instantly began to understand why this motorcycle is so treasured among antique bike collectors.

The Knucklehead is so beautiful, that even those who are not motorcycle collectors or fanatics would still see that there was something unique and special about this Harley creation. The Knucklehead comes in different colors, but the red classic Knucklehead is the one that catches most enthusiasts eyes.  The bright red, crimson color adds to the excitement of riding down the open highway on your 1937 American classic. 
Most Motorcycle collectors would drool at a chance to get their hands on the 1937 Harley Davidson Knucklehead that appeared on an episode of American Pickers. This classic motorcycle goes from between $35,000 to $50,000 and above in good restored condition.  However, the value is by far more than just monetary. Just knowing that you have a piece of history in your position is worth more than the monetary price tag that goes with owning one of these treasures.
Harley Davidson, a great American manufacturers of motorcycles founded in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, competed with great Japanese competitors to become the premier motorcycle manufactures of the 20th century. The 1937 Harley Davidson Knucklehead is one of it's memorable contributions to American culture and memorabilia.  Owning a 1937 Knucklehead is like owning a piece of rich American History.

The Knuclehead was named after the unique two cylinder "rocker boxes" shape of the Harley Davidson bike engine.  Originally, the Knucklehead was called "OHVs" and subsequently called "Knucklehead" within the California biker culture that was popular in the 1960's.
In 1948, the Panhead engine replaced the Knucklehead. Today, you can find the 1937 Knucklehead on auction sites like Ebay and sites like Yakaz but be prepared to pay the cost of owning one of the greatest accomplishments in American motorcycle and manufacturing history.
