Harley-Davidson was not always the company that we know and love today. Actually in the late 1920s, it manufactured single-cylinder two-wheelers, including something called a Peashooter. This perfect example from 1928 is quite rare and incredibly sought-after, especially since it was already a rare sight when it was made.
The Peashooter model was released for the first time in 1926 as a competitor in the AMA 21 cubic-inch racing class. Due to the aftermarket performance tuning that it received, the bike made an instantly recognizable popping sound, hence its name. The model that you’re looking at right now flaunts a completely restored 350cc engine, as well as a Scheduler AMX12 racing carburetor and an SA competition motor. It will be put under the hammer next year, and it will surely find a buyer in no time at all.
