You might think this is the first bike created by William Harley and the Davidson brothers. Well, it’s not far from it. This 1907 Harley-Davidson Motorcycle ($TBA) is actually the 94th machine ever built, and is believed to be the best unrestored version of its model in existence.
Carrying the serial number 2037, this is one of the 1299 rare and highly-desired first Harleys to be produced, known as the ‘strap tanks,’ for the nickel-plated steel bands that suspend the fuel and oil tanks from the frame. Every piece on the bike is original, including its frame , engine and paint job. Bought from the original owner’s family estate in 1993, the machine comes complete with title. If you’d like to own this fine piece of automotive history and you have some extra cash lying around (it’s been appraised at an astounding $800,000 to $1,000,000), the 1907 Harley-Davidson Strap Tank Motorcycle will be up for auction on March 20 and 21, in Las Vegas.
