Georges Ironhead

George, a passionate sailor and motorcycle rider, owns this beautiful 1973
1000cc Ironhead. The bike is slightly tuned and delivers 80hp at the rear wheel. Unfortunately George did not have the chance to ride her lately. We hope,
that he will find some time to get this bike back on the road, roaming freely
across the Black Forest, or around the Bodensee in Germany. Click into the

The Outperformers

Back in those days Harley Davidson was a part of AMF, but they came out with the most graceful stock Harley ever built, the 1972 Superglide named "Midnight Express". Clean lines, beautifully pinstriped with the American colors, and a horizontally striped seat completed the looks of this 74 C.I.

Quote of the month:

"The Buddha, the Godhead, resides quite as comfortably in the circuits of a digital computer or the gears of a cycle transmission as he does at the top of the mountain, or in the petals of a flower."

Nice device

Old Harleys are precious collectors items. They are sought after like never before. The old style padlock at the lower end of the headset, and the easy to manipulate ignition switch is not a big deal for an interested thief. Both  they are not tamper-proof. If you are just over to warm your preferred peaches, and have to park your sled outside on the street, there is a solution. It is unobtrusive (without the red key) but effective. Press the red key towards the bike, turn it to the right, and remove it. The main power cable will be


interrupted, the bike will not start. Some folks call it immobilizer. This is not true though, as long there is a truck and some accomplices around. But it may help!
