My beautiful 57
Harley davidson 74 1957 FL Hydra glide

This bike is a Vietnam war survivor. Its all original accept for rubbers and leather. All I had to do was change the plugs, air cleaner,oil and tappet screen. I also adjusted the carb, ignition, checked front chain and generator. That was it. Starts always on first kick hot or cold. Shifts smooth, Amazing ride !!! In 1957 Handsift-suicide clutch models were largely outnumbered by footshift bikes. I love handshifts! 
The way this bike looks is just the way I love old Harleys. Without tonnes of acessories hangin on it, just the pure simple machine on it's own. As I bought it, I Haven't change a thing. not even a seat nor bars. It just fitted me nice.
