Harley Davidson 1928 JD 1200cc 2 cyl ioe



Harley-Davidson 1928 model JD     1212 cc IOE V-twin       engine  #28 JD 11288

For 1928,  about 4300  model J machines were sold; the 1212 cc JD was much more in demand with  more than 11,000 units leaving the factory. Not surprisingly perhaps, as  the price difference between these models  was a mere  $10.
1928 was the first year  of the internal expanding front brake which was  a practical innovation indeed. 
Some more new developments for model year 1928 were the addition of an air cleaner, larger size wheel spokes and a larger size fuel pump connected to the throttle.
This good-looking machine  has been restored meticulously.
