Harley-Davidson 1933 model RE 750 cc side valve V-twin frame#33RE1367 engine#321349
The company introduced the side valve concept for the V-twins for the 1929 model year when the 45 ci model D was introduced.
A year later the F head big twin was replaced by the side valve 74 ci model V.
The RE was a special model with magnesium-alloy pistons.
A remarkable feature of the 1933 models was the stylized eagle motif tank panel, which gave the machine an Art deco touch.
The early thirties were difficult years for the company because of the economic depression.
Harley sales were extremely low in 1933: no more than about 550 750 cc models were produced.
The 1200 cc model sales were a bit better with about 2,000 machines being sold.
The machine is a newly discovered barnfind and appears to be in a good mechanical and complete condition..
