Grand Prix Harley's

A long time ago in a galaxy far far away...

1969 at Daytona


Walter Villa's world championship winning Harley at Spa


350 Harley Sprint


Cal Rayborn's Harley at Daytona 1970


Harley 2-Stroke?


The Original Wrecking Crew


Imagine what kind of comparny Harley would of become had they continued to war with the Japanese and Europeans on the Grand Prix Circuit. Imagine HD operating as one of the Japanese 4 with full fledged sportsbikes, commitments to performance, REAL HANDLING.... Its all metaphysical soup of course

Yes, but the SOHC is not going to allow it, unless they limited it with special rules for that class of bike.

The heritage and pedigree are there, the engine really needs to be a light weighted Vrod motor with a smaller punch size and piston to match. Then maybe...... in that XR frame.

lightweight is the key, weight is killer.
