1926 Harley Davidson OHV ‘Peashooter’ – SOLD

engine no: 26AA 9235

This 1926 OHV Harley Davidson 350cc was a project bike that was almost fully restored by Kevin. He collected and carefully restored its components over many years. It has only recently been put together for viewing purposes in order to show what a magnificent motorcycle it was going to be.

The 1926AA was closely related to the racing single of the day   known as a Peashooter and these too have come to be called “Peashooters”. They were sold by Harley Davidson as a speedy road bike to rival the sales of the Indian Prince at the time. Closely related to the Harley side valve ‘Pup’, the OHV version is a much rarer and faster beast.

This particular bike is close to the racing form, built to run with a Bosch FF1 magneto (included) and as a result is much leaner looking than its 1928 brother on this site. It has no lights or switchbox and is year accurate with its nickling and handlebars – someone wanting to make this even sportier will probably fit the racing style handlebars of the period.

This has matching crank-cases but has not had its engine and gearbox rebuilt yet. It is being sold with the main components for these in seperate crates along with various other parts. As can be seen, this bike has most of the difficult to locate parts already such as  front and rear stands, nickled tank plate, mudguards (fenders) and stays. It requires very few items to finish it off and most of them, such as the exhaust, are easily purchased. Some further restoration work will be required.

Please note: The following unrestored but non-standard parts for this model are also available to the buyer to purchase for this bike seperately should they wish to:

  • vintage American speedo kit,
  • headlight parts
  • switch box
  • generator
  • ignition coil
