If you’re a fan of classic Harley-Davidsons or Knuckleheads you’ll really get a kick out of this one. It’s a view of a ride on a 1936 Harley-Davidson EL Knucklehead. The bike is owned by the editor-in-chief of American Iron Magazine, Buzz Kanter. According to Kanter, 1936 edition was the first Knucklehead created by Harley-Davidson. It was also the first time they offered an overhead value engine or an OHV and recirculating oil system. The Harley-Davidson Knucklehead paved the way for future air-cooled Harley v-twins.
