In such original condition when purchased back in 2006 the plan to restore it began the moment it was picked up
in Winston Salem, North Carolina.
From the frame to the adjustable lower triple tree front end to the sheet metal and of course on to the motor &
trans this original 1961 Panhead totally deserved to be brought back to its' glory days.
After almost a year and a half of hard work it was completed and ready to be enjoyed and that it was. Runs and
rides like a dream. Bike was restored at 60k original miles then the original speedo broke after about 1k miles or
so, new V-Twin speedo has 8,400 for a total of just under 10k miles since completion.

You are buying this 1961 Harley Davidson FLH Duo Glide directly from its titled, registered owner who did all the
restoration himself. Feel free to contact us with questions and we will be happy to help.
The bike runs, rides, starts, idles, stops and shifts excellent with no issues. All of its lighting is in proper working
order, windshield nice and clear.
Its' paint is in overall outstanding condition with a rich, deep shine and all of its' chrome shows wonderfully. The
picks are a bit of paint peel starting around the gas cap neck and light scratches at the rear of the left saddle bag
from a set of keys. Nothing to take away from its' overall stunning condition.
A video is available upon request of the bike being started & running.
