Harley-Davidson 1928 “JD” 1212 cc IOE V-twin engine #29 JD 7399
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 oilpump connected to the throttle. This well-preserved machine has been restored around the early 80s and has not seen much use since; she has been in long-time storage. She comes with luxurious “made in Holland” Ideal pillion seat and current Dutch registration.
