It’s probably the smallest Harley you can get your hands on: the Harley-Davidson Hummer.
This is a production of the first model year, and it only has an air-cooled 125cc two-stroke engine with such a small cylinder head that develops three horsepower. Power is transmitted to the rear wheels via a three-speed transmission and a standard chain. Of course, it comes equipped with a carburetor and a set of 19-inch wheels wrapped in 3.50-inch Cheng Shin tires – Cheng-what now? Besides the unnamed rubber, the bike actually has an inverted fork as well as rubber gaiters for the front. However, the bike has a hard tail and the only things that will keep your butt from going numb are the springs on the seat – at least there are two of them.
It’s not really a mini-bike, just a very small cruiser. The frame is black, but the body panels are finished in a nice cream shade. The Harley-Davidson branding can be found on both sides of the tank, and the previous or previous owner has affixed an American flag sticker to the back. The bars are relatively wide, but you don’t have any form of instrumentation, so you’ll need to get a feel for how fast you’ll be going on this thing – not whatsoever. this fast anyway. Note, however, the handles. While the clutch side handle appears to be in good condition, the throttle side appears to have cracked and worn.
According to the listing, the bike was started once in early 2021 and has been dormant ever since. There are also quite a few imperfections on this bike. For one thing, there are a few scratches that the folks at Bring a Trailer mention as the left side graphics partially missing. More detailed photos of the bike are also available on the listing itself.
Regardless of its less than perfect condition, it’s still a piece of Harley history. The model was produced from 1955 to 1959 and was based on the German DKW RT 125 in the 1930s.
Note, however, that this bike currently costs US $ 2,050 at the time of writing, so act fast. In addition, there is a lien on the title and the owner’s lender must first be paid off before the title can be transferred. Other than that, the auction ends on July 25, 2021, which is roughly six days from now.
