1961 Panhead For Sale

Tom has his Pan on the market :  Contact him directly@

1961 HD FL. Factory foot shift. This bike was originally purchased in CA and the owner of most of its years was named "Walt Krupp". Walt was a proud man and loved his machine, he tattood his name and SSN on many parts of it by scribe or punch. If that kid of thing bothers you, this FL probably isn't for you. To me that is part of the history of this machine and because of that I mechanically and cosmetically restored it trying to keep as many of the original parts as possible. This has been a complete motorcycle since it left the factory in '61 and most all of the parts are original to it. Over the period of years I chipped away at it and here's what came out on the other side. I think Walt would be glad to see its back on the road. The miles shown on the speedo are the miles I have put on it since completing it. It starts easy, and runs and rides excellent. With the belt drive/pro clutch it's super smooth and doesn't leak a drop.
