1947 Harley Knuck Custom Bobber

John Landstrom of Blue Moon Cycle, Inc. from Norcross, Georgia , United States made available these photos of his great lookin' 1947 Harley Knucklehead Custom Bobber.

John: "Here's my 47 Knucklehead. You might say it's a well dressed Bobber. Basically stock '47 but that's a 2" over springer from a Harley XA, front fender gone and Hollywood handlebars.

The extra couple inches of fork keeps the shiny parts from dragging in corners during TT races, that's Tavern to Tavern."

John: "I don't consider this bike to be a 'true' Bobber, it's more of a pimped out Stocker. I just has too many nice parts to be Bobber material. Fork is XA, dual exhaust, Hollywood handlebars, Cabbage Slicer rear bumper."
