2023 MOTORCYCLE AUCTION
1977 Harley Davidson Electra Glide “Shovel Head”
Two important events in the lengthy development of Harley's perennial v-twin occurred in the mid-1960s when the 74ci (1,200cc) Duo Glide adopted electric starting (1965) and the 'Shovelhead' engine the following year. Now known as the 'Electra Glide', without question one of the most evocative names in motorcycling history, Harley's updated cruiser featured a new frame to house the large 12-volt battery and a reshaped primary drive cover to accommodate the electric starter mechanism. The Shovelhead 'Glide continued in production for a further 18 years
This machine represents an opportunity to own one of these 50 year old icons - a true classic

1947 Indian Chief
The first going up for auction at the Bulli Antique Bike Weekend on the 12 and 13th of August is this very handsome and well sorted 1947 Indian Chief.
The Indian Chief is a motorcycle that was built by the Hendee Manufacturing Company and the subsequent Indian Motorcycle Company from 1922 to the end of the company's production in 1953.
The Chief was Indian's "big twin", a larger, more powerful motorcycle than the more agile Scout used in competition and sport riding.
The now-legendary V-twin Indian Chief motorcycle emerged as Indian's flagship model after World War II and the popular design relegated the American company's four-cylinder and smaller V-twin models to history.
The 1947 model was similar to pre-war big Indians; the engine remained a 74-cubic-inch, 42 degree, air cooled side valve unit. Tank graphics were unchanged. As always, "Indian Red" was a popular colour choice however owners could order a Chief in any Dupont colour they liked. Two-tone finishes were also available.
Production of Indian motorcycles ended with the last Chief made in 1953.
This motorcycle is a Police special with “speed-trap” speedo and 1260cc engine. Features include:
6 volt system
(1950 telescopic front end)
Carb recently rebuilt and restored (The Carburettor Guy - Sydney)
Purchased from Antique Motorcycles in Melbourne approx 10 years ago and has since been used in “the Great Race” - Harley Vs Indian in Kosciusko National Park (see stickers on the front fender)
