From Eric:

          Here is my 1950 Harley Davidson FL Police bike. The FL models were 74 cubic inch twins. It is bone stock with the original paint -- everything works. Is that about the most beautiful thing you've ever seen? Man oh man -- pinch me, I'm dreaming.

          Check out those three stainless stripes on the rear fender -- Sergeant Stripes -- produced for the years '49 and '50. I had to take the red lenses out of the spotlights to drive it so I wasn't impersonating a police officer.

          This is the third year of the panheads and the second year of the hydraulic front forks. The '57s were the last of the rigid, no rear suspension frames and '65 (64?) was the last of the panheads. The '50 is considered to be one of the most beautiful HDs ever made. I think so too.

          Eric's got a lot of old Bolts in the Gallery -- starting with a 1950 GMC 250 1-Ton 4 x 4 Flatbed Dually, and a 1951 Chevy 5-window 3100, with more coming. ~~ Editor
