Among all the older Harley-Davidson models, none holds the allure of the Panhead. Manufactured from 1948 to 1965, the Panhead might be called the first modern Harley. Rick Schunk starts the discussion of Panhead restoration with a brief history lesson, followed by a list of things to look for, and avoid, when shopping for a Panhead. Before starting on a restoration, you have to assess both the machine's needs and your own abilities. The next section is dedicated to the bike's chassis, like the rest of the book, this part is made up of photo sequences that explain exactly how to disassemble the chassis, repair the fork, and lace the wire wheels. Other chapters cover paint, engines and transmissions including the overhaul of both an engine and a transmission. Related components like the carburetor, primary drive, clutch and electrical components are covered as well. While there are other restoration guides, there are no how-to restoration books that provide extensive, start-to-finish photo sequences explaining each major operation necessary to the restoration of a Harley-Davidson Panhead.

Based on the civilian WL model, Harley-Davidson's WLA ("A" for "Army") motorcycle was first produced in 1940. It would remain in production through 1945, and eventually over 90,000 were delivered for use in all theaters of WWII. Like the WL, the WLA was equipped with a 45 cubic inch (740 cc) flathead high compression engine and a rugged frame. Military modifications included blackout lights, fenders without traditional sides (to reduce mud clogging), an air cleaner to facilitate off-road use and easy maintenance, and a crankcase breather that enabled the fording of water obstacles. The motorcycle typically was also equipped with leg protectors, a skid plate, leather rifle or machine gun scabbard, an ammunition box, radio or luggage rack, and a windscreen. This U.S. Army technical manual TM 9-879 was created in 1943 for the men who operated and serviced the WLA in the field. In its pages you will find a description of the motorcycle, and information regarding its use and care.Originally classified "restricted," this manual was declassified long ago and is reprinted here in its entirety.

Celebrate the 80th anniversary of the engine that changed the motorcycle world. Motorcycle technology lagged far behind automotive technology since the earliest days of the internal-combustion engine. All that changed in 1936 when Harley-Davidson introduced the Model EL. For the first time ever, a company was manufacturing a high-performance overhead-valve engine for the masses. And what an engine it was -- in addition to bringing state-of-the-art technology to the motorcycling world -- a work of art. Because of the shape of its rocker covers, the engine was given a nickname to match its looks: the Knucklehead. The technology used in this engine was so advanced that it laid the foundation for every future Harley-Davidson motorcycle, including the current models built in the 21st century. To this day every cruiser style motorcycle still adheres to the shape of that original Knucklehead. Harley-Davidson Knucklehead: Eighty Years tells the entire Knucklehead story, from the very first overhead-valve V-twin Harley produced for the public through the post-war models, continuing right up until today, when aftermarket manufacturers reproduce complete Knucklehead crate engines because of its continuing popularity.

Perhaps the greatest appeal of the motorcycles that Harley-Davidson manufactures is that they are not throwaway machines. With proper care and maintenance, a modern Harley can outlive its owner. Most of the Harley-Davidson motorcycles built over the past 25 years are still on the road, which means there are many, many used Harleys bought and sold every day. This book provides a practical guide to purchasing the most common Harleys on the used-bike market: the aluminum-engine machines built since 1984, the Evolutions (Sportsters and Big Twins), Twin Cams, and liquid-cooled Revolution bikes (the V-Rod models). These are the bikes being bought and sold, and these are the motorcycles most widely used as daily riders. Harley-Davidson Buyer’s Guide provides everything a reader needs to know to purchase a sound, reliable, enjoyable Harley-Davidson Big Twin motorcycle.
