Auction Block: 1929 Harley-Davidson Peashooter

Nov 23, 2016

Category: Rides

Before Harley-Davidson was renowned for their powerful V-twin engines, the legendary bike manufacturer once produced single cylinder machines such as this 1928 Peashooter. In fact, even this single cylinder was rare at the time since they had, for the most part, discontinued such singles after 1918. Needless to say, this beauty has been a coveted antique two-wheeler for some time now.

The Peashooter, in particular, was first released back in 1926 to compete in the AMA 21 cubic-inch racing class. The name comes from the strange popping sounds you’d often hear the bike make thanks to the aftermarket performance tuning typically done on these bikes. This model houses a restored 350cc engine and is formally part of the EJ Cole Collection. It features a rare Scheduler AMX12 racing carburetor, an SA competition motor and is currently set to auction early next year. There’s no word on an estimated starting price just yet though we’re sure it’ll sell above and beyond a suggested collector’s price.
