Origins

This bike was purchased from Glen Bader Enterprises in California. The motorcycle was in mint condition when purchased.

In 1941, the knucklehead design was expanded to include the 74 ci (1,200 cc) bikes and other mechanical improvements were made across the product line. With the outbreak of WWII, civilian production was limited and manufacturing materials for anything but the war effort was, as well.
