Harley-Davidson 1925  1212 cc  IOE V-twin     frame & engine#  25 JDCB 10333

From model year 1921 the factory markets a 74 cu. ( 1212 cc) model (bore x stroke 87.4×101.6mm) alongside the  60 cu. ( 989 cc ) machines to cater for  the sidecar enthusiasts. 
Model year 1925  looks completely different from the older models: a new type of frame causes the saddle position to be 3 inches lower than before, the wheels are smaller in diameter and the petrol tank gets  a “ dynamic”  teardrop shape. All in all these new models look much more modern than their predecessors.   
In 1925  Harley Davidson sells about 15,000 motorcycles, more than 60% of this output  are  1212 cc models. Compression ratio is 3,7:1,  power output 16  SAE HP @ 3,600rpm. 
The unladen weight is 180 kg and the petrol tank holds  no less than 20 litres. 
This nice machine has been restored a some years ago.
