1936 KNucklehead starting for the first time in seventy years

1936 KNucklehead starting for the first time in seventy years

Here is a clip that my dad shot of me starting 36EL 1005 for the first time after a six year restoration. The right tank is off, so that we can adjust that overhead oiling. This bike is my dad’s submission for Micheal Lichter’s Eternal Combustion, Motorcycles as Art Exhibit that will be at The Buffalo Chip Campground this year at Sturgis 2010! Swing by and check it out if you are in the area.

  1. First start right I don't think so. I own a 74 ironhead like to see you kick that bitch in flip flops.

  2. Let me catch my son wearing much less kickin my panhead in flipflops!!!!! Beautiful knuckle head.

  3. If you start a bike up then the very first thing you do is check that Oil is coming back into the tank !

  4. Wow. He's wearing his mandals, I mean flip flops. Kills the whole concept through distraction. Hope he learns better.

  5. Welcome to the club and enjoy those exposed rockers ,I love the hell out of my 36 EL ,it's much easier to start than my 55 FL Panhead.
