Vintage Motorcycles on the Beach

Vintage motorcycles and beautiful women in bathing suits, what could be better? Well, I guess one thing comes to mind, but I'm running a family friendly blog

Harley Engines

Starting in 1936, Harley began making overhead valve engines with recirculating oil.  That is what most people consider the start of the "modern" Harley Big Twin.


Knucklehead:  1936 - 1947
Panhead:  1948 - 1965
Shovelhead:  1966 - 1984
Evolution:  1984-1999
Twin Cam: 1999 - Present

Harley has never produced a "dickhead" in their factories, but they make accessories for turning anyone into one.  I suggest the "dickhead starter package":  one tank top, one doo-rag, one pair of jeans, one pair of boots and Harley motorcycle with straight pipes.  For increased "dickhead" just add beer.
