1907 Harley-Davidson Strap Tank Motorcycle

With the new baseball season upon us, we’re inclined to say this 1907 Harley-Davidson Strap Tank Motorcycle is the collector’s equivalent of a signed bat from Ty Cobb. Why the Georgia Peach? Because both he and this bike were giving thrills 108 years ago. But only the motorcycle is up for auction.

Due to the serial number, it’s believed to be the 37th one built in 1907, and just the 94th overall, so yeah, there’s a little bit of history here, and that’s why it’s expected to fetch between $800,000 and $1,000,000. This machine is widely considered the best unrestored ‘strap tank’ Harley in the world, and it still features the original paint job, engine, frame, and steel bands suspending the fuel and oil tanks from the frame. It was purchased from the original owner’s family estate in 1993, and it even comes with the title. [Purchase]
