1920 Harley-Davidson Model F

Description

Introduced in 1915, the 1000cc Model F was big step forward for Harley-Davidson and would remain in the lineup until 1929. It established the now iconic 45-degree v-twin as the brand’s trademark powerplant.

Additionally, the fuel tank has the then advanced rounded corners, as well as clearance cut-out pockets for the valve mechanisms. Gone are the starting pedals from the bicycle era, now replaced with a proper kickstarter lever. In 1917 the motor, with 3-speed gearbox, was improved with a 4-lobe camshaft and enclosed intake valve springs. Buyers could choose between the Model J with a battery and coil ignition or the Model F with a magneto.

This 1920 Model F was restored some years ago, and, finished in Harley’s standard olive paint, it remains in sound mechanical and cosmetic condition. A truly seminal model from a truly idolised motorcycle manufacturer that is soon to celebrate its 114th anniversary.
