Jan Berkowitz Begins Restoration of Vintage Harley Davidson Motorcycle

(1888PressRelease) Jan Berkowitz spent many hours online searching and traveled throughout the US looking for the parts he needed to complete the bike.

New York, NY; Jan Berkowitz recently began restoration work on his 1946 Knucklehead Harley Davidson and plans to complete the project in mid 2012.

Jan Berkowitz received the vintage Harley Davidson as a heirloom from an old friend. Motorcycles, especially Harley Davidson’s, have always been a part of the Berkowitz family. Jan Berkowitz started working on motorcycles at the early age of 12 on weekends and has continued to do so ever since.

Jan Berkowitz owns a newer model bike but was thrilled when an old friend handed down the vintage Harley. “This motorcycle was my old friends pride and joy.” said Jan Berkowitz. “He spent a lot of time on the open rode with this motorcycle and I am thrilled to bring it back to its original beauty and performance.”

This project began as soon as Jan received the motorcycle. Restoration can be difficult because parts are so hard to come by. Jan Berkowitz spent many hours online searching and traveled throughout the US looking for the parts he needed to complete the bike.

The 1946 Knucklehead was replaced with the Panhead in 1948. The Knucklehead received it’s name due to the distinct shape of the rocker boxes; a Knucklehead engine has two round knobs on the cover that resemble knuckles. The Knucklehead engine is a two cylinder, 45 degree, pushrod actuated overhead valve V-twin engine with two valves per cylinder.

Jan Berkowitz is scheduled to begin working on the bike this week and believes it will be complete by summer of 2012; perfect timing for great riding weather. Jan Berkowitz has his very own garage to accommodate restoration of the bike.
