Description

1949 FL Panhead, first year of the hydraulic forks.
That was the beginning of the Hydraglide. Restored from frame up by my father, who I inherited it from about 8 years ago. He used the Palmer restoration book, (Bible) which is included with the bike. Bike is painted the original Peacock Blue which looks unique and is a real eye catcher. Bike has 1124 miles on it since restoration. Engine runs great and starts in 1 to 2 kicks. Engine machine work was done by Panhead Legend/Guru Dragon Distributors. See photos, their pamphlet is included.
Bike is easy to ride once you get the hang of the foot clutch. It can run on unleaded gas, it has the proper valve guides. I run non ethanol gas with Stabil in it and it starts every time, no matter how long it sits.
Things that I am aware of that are not original are as follows: (most items make it more reliable and comfortable to ride)
Solo leather seat is from an earlier Knucklehead, I just love the looks of it so I put it on. The bike comes with an original un-restored Buddy seat if you want the original look,(see photo). It will bolt right on. I have ridden it with that seat on it.
P pad on luggage rack, laced on can be removed, also rear foot pegs can be removed, just clamped on.
Bike is still a 6 volt system but I have put in a sealed agm battery instead of the big heavy lead acid battery.
Voltage regulator has been changed to a more modern and dependable solid state unit. The original ones are unreliable.
Does not have ignition timing adjuster on handlebar. Timing is set at the perfect level for easy starting and cruising.

It does leak oil if it sits for more than 2 weeks, as all classic Harleys do. I keep a drip pan under it. If you ride it somewhere and park it a few hours, you might see 1 to 2 drops if it is real hot out.
Also when making the video today I noticed the speedo was not working and it was 2 weeks ago. I will take a look at it. The cable might have loosened or something.
Winning bidder can pick up bike in Port Charlotte, FL 33953, or I will cooperate with your shipper if you are having it transported.
Clear Florida Title in my name!
Speedometer is fixed, tightened speedo cable at transmission.
I removed the belly pan to check. The numbers match and are the correct year. I have added some photos for your reference. The numbers are 3132 and the right hand case is also stamped 49 as well.

I have posted a video of the Bike. The link follows:
