and you all hate harleys, why are you all going ga ga over this one?
Simple answer: If I have to explain, you wouldn't understand!
This recreation is from the era when HD was a pioneer, basically sticking a simple motor on basically a bicycle frame. This machine has elemental simplicity, an elegance, charm, and is immensly appealing compared to what they've become. There's no clumsiness to it, no pretensions, no social sense of belonging to a group attached to it, no overt display of wealth, no look-at-me grab for attention with chrome and add-on chrome accessories. I've heard HD's from this era, and there's no noise for the sake of making noise attached to them, either. Just a quiet chuffing.
In short, this little machine is an appealing, charming example of pretty much everything HD isn't anymore. Add me to the list of riders who have no interest in today's HD and have no desire to ever buy one, but would love to own that little 1910 machine. Timeless, indeed.
