1935 Harley Davidson VL

Congratulations to Les Shelly of Huntington Beach for winning Bike of the Month with his 1935 Harley Davidson VL.

Les has owned this Harley for about 4 years. It was built by George Hood. He also owns a 1920 Harley and ownes vintage cars.

Les said that the bike is a mostly stock aside from the paint. The Harley Davidson VL came with Consistant Accelleration Cams in it's 82 cubic inch engine.

Les manufactures Cams for Harley Davidson VL's and JD's as a side business.

It was a close vote, three other bikes were tied for second place today, a 1965 BMW R69S, a 1981 Suzuki GS1100X drag bike and a 1951 Ariel Red Hunter 350.

Check out all the pictures in the January Gallery. Thank you Les for bringing out.
