Spare Engine for Buzz’s 1926 Motorcycle Cannonball Harley

One of the things I learned in last year’s cross country Motorcycle Cannonball ride was that it is a very good idea to have as many spares as possible. As I shared in the pages of American Iron Magazine riding a 1915 Harley across the US meant trying to track down parts not easy or cheap to find. Next year I am planning on riding a much newer (and easier to find parts for) 1926 Harley. So I have already begun to think about building the motorcycle I plan to ride AND to start stockpiling spares.

Real World Harleys & Remembering 9/11

As motorcycle riders, we can choose to focus on our differences or our similarities. We have many choices in what we ride and how we view our riding style. Bagger, chopper, or bobber? Softail, Dyna, or Sportster? Stock or custom? Shiny and new or rusty and old? As the editors of this magazine, every few […]

Harley Magazine Editor To Ride 1926 Harley In Cross Country Motorcycle Cannonball

It is the dream of a motorcycle editor to ride a vintage Harley cross country and share it with his audience. As the Editor-in-Chief of the world’s best selling Harley magazine I was fortunate enough to buy, rebuild and ride Selma, my 1915 Harley motorcycle on the first ever Motorcycle Cannonball. This event was a coast to coast ride for pre-1916 motorcycles. No, that’s no typo – a cross country ride on pre-1916 motorcycles.

Motorcycle Riding, So Much To Do, Not Enough Time To Do It!

I bought my first motorcycle in college in 1974. As the years rolled by, my desire to ride never lessened, but my ability to get the free time to hit the road did. Work, family, responsibilities. You know the drill. Even though I make my living in the motorcycle industry, I cherish the time I […]

1949 Harley-Davidson EL Panhead Bobber

Buzz-1949-Harley-EL-panhead-12

When I first started collecting parts for this project about 10 years ago, the motor­cycle rage was choppers. Back then, not many riders cared about bobbers and the phrase old school had not yet become the cliché it is today. I’ve always enjoyed old bikes that perform well, and I’ve been fortunate enough to own […]
