Phil Campton's U Model

This bike is a 1939 Harley-Davidson U Model of 1200cc, the U denoting that it is a low compression "Flathead" motor. It has a springer front suspension, no rear suspension, a foot clutch and hand gear change on the tank, and is a solo although these were favoured for use with sidecars. It has had a very hard life but at present it is being restored to it's former glory and it will hopefully be back on the road soon, where it should be.
