My 1972 Harley Davidson Shovehead Project was stolen from me this week .

Bike looks pretty much how it does here. Has no plates..is not running or complete.

Motor, shocks & oil tank are a matte/brushed finish. Extended round swing arm. Custom dual calliper set up. WLA fronted with custom rockers and new parkerised springs. Vintage headlight with new internals etc 

Please contact me if you hear of anyone trying to move similar parts .

Reward for any info.. Please repost and share, help me get the old girl home. At the very least it will make it difficult for them to make a quid from the parts.. Cheers. 

BORN TO RIDE - WILLIAM B. JOHNSON (1890 -  1971)
—– 1ST AFRICAN AMERICAN HARLEY DAVIDSON DEALER

William “Wild Bill” Johnson was both the first African American Harley-Davidson dealer and the first African American licensed to compete in national motorcycle racing events. Johnson signed on with Harley-Davidson sometime in the 1920s, running his store during nearly 60 years Johnson’s out of a converted blacksmith shop.

Because African Americans were not allowed into the American Motorcyclist Association, the organization that hosted the events, it is said that Johnson was only allowed to join and enter the competitions after he and die-hard fans declared that he was an American Indian.
