1979 Harley Davidson Police Special

This black and white unit has been part of the Victor McLaglen Motor Corps, a motorcycle stunt and drill team, since it was purchased new back in 1979. The drill team was started in 1935 by the Academy Award-winning movie star, Victor McLaglen. In 1936, they won the World Championship Trophy in a competition with the famed Mexico City Police motorcycle team. The trophy is on display at California Harley-Davidson in Harbor City, California. In 1980, the team set a new Guinness Book World Record by putting 22 men on one moving motorcycle. At their shows, they have crashed firewall, built 14-man pyramids, rode upside down, backwards and sideways.  Over the years, there have been more than 200 members in this elite team and the average length of time for membership was 20 years. Sporting the classic Shovelhead Big Twin motor and rare tank shift transmission option, this unit has been on static display for the past few years.  It is missing its carburetor and will most likely need a new battery and a full service prior to getting back out on the road. Selling with a clear California title.
