Harley Davidson 1928 model 28JD 1200 cc combination



Harley-¬ Davidson 1928 model JD    combination  1212 cc IOE  frame #  11882     engine  #28 JD 11882

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, a practical innovation indeed, especially for the machines that were equipped with a sidecar.  
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 combination has been restored meticulously.
