1911 7D is the first ‘production’ V-twin from Harley-Davidson. I doubt anyone is going to be riding this one. Watching the bidders at this auction is half the fun. Some of them have so much money to throw around that they don't care how much the bike they want costs. 10 minutes after this bike sold, I was standing in line for a hot dog next to the buyer. He looked like an average Joe.

So here is question for the day... I own a Vincent Egli (Godet) bought new in 2005. Since day one I was not happy with the bike: a big disappointment from something I was dreaming of for years and was supposed to be my ultimate bike. In 09 I had a bad accident which left me with a screwed right arm making the Egli even more difficult to ride. I am now happier with sidecars so I am thinking of letting the Egli go and replace her by either an Indian 4, a Big Chief or a Square 4. All with a sidecar of course. I love the Indian 4 (kick starter on the left...) but they are rarer than rare. Square 4 is nice but what about the crank reliability with a sidecar? Big Chief seems to be a great choice??

nice dillema...

Fours are pretty expensive for what you get, and the performance isn't that much better than the twin's...

I'm a Britbike guy so I WOULD say go Ariel....but...we are a long way from Draganfly, the only parts source...

Have a friend who has driven a late Chief with sidecar from Minneapolis to Davenport and Sturgis probably 35 times, they are understressed, reliable, decent on parts prices, clearly the Chief is the choice. AMCA and dozens of vendors are a great parts backup, and the sidecars look classy.

You've kind of answered your own question. Condition condition condition. This is a 1911 not some dime a dozen panhead from the 50's. It's a lot of money but at an auction like this it's safe to assume that bike is right and not some hodge podge thrown together. Maybe the previous condition prior to the restore made the decision an easy one. Don't forget the %10 buyers premium.
