I'm pretty sure it's a 1951. It appears to have the grease fitting on the front fork (that white spot), and it looks like the fork tube upper nuts do not have the smaller oil cups on them. That was 1951 only. It also looks like the fork panel says "125", not Tele-Glide. That was very early 1951.

The taillight looks quite odd. I can't quite place it at all.

We'll have to send the picture to the CIA or NRO or NGA or some other spook agency for confirmation.

Here's a pic from a 1951 Harley brochure. Love those early 1950's clothes and hairstyles.


would someone like to guess what year and model the blue bike is? It most likely is not the prototype as it has a license plate on it, so it is more than likely a actual bike that was sold to someone. This gives one a lot of information on what this particular year and model finishes and details were, straight out of the factory.
