There's almost nothing better than seeing a fully restored Harley-Davidson Knucklehead from the 40's looking like the day it left the showroom floor. Brian from Geared Science takes us on a little adventure to peak inside Milwaukee native Bill Rodriguez's garage and gives us an in-depth look at Bill's fully restored 1947 Knucklehead.
With a little over a year and a half worth of work on this Harley Davidson restoration, Bill and his son Carlos did an impeccable job keeping it as close to factory specs as possible along with finding some really cool period correct after market parts like the windshield and kaki colored seat. Though this video is a quickie, it will for sure make you drool on your beard!

Bill found a brand new OEM Knucklehead speedo and odometer gauge with 0 miles on it. Rodriguez left the cable disconnected to keep it at 0 miles.
The Saddlebags fell into Bill's lap at Davenport for $400!
I'm no purest, but I tried to build this bike close as possible to factory specs, the wiring, brackets and what not.
In case you couldn't tell the year, Bill had vanity plates made to let you know!
Classy as all get up with the three light horn combo on the front.
