Harley?????? What do you think?

(Pics taken at Barber's Historic Weekend 2008)

This is a Rikuo Motorcycle, made in Japan in the 30's I'll post a link to some pages with more info about them....

You can see some of the differences between this bike an a Harley if you look close. The springer fork is close, but not exact, the rear head has some kind of funky cover. Keep looking and see how many you can find.

From the rear you can see that the tailight looks like a beehive, but the bottom is round instead of flat. Also, the dash is flat on the rear instead of pointed like the early HD's. Obviously the muffler is not original so don't pay any attention to that.

This is a very unique bike and I can promise you won't see many around or find many people who even know what it is.
