PARAGOULD, Ark. - Collectors from across the globe have the opportunity to bid on a rare 1942 F Harley-Davidson motorcycle presented by auction company Soldasap.com, Tasabah & Associates LLC.
The flight red Harley belonged to Dr. George A. Renaker, an avid car collector from Florence, Ky., and features a 74ci medium compression Knucklehead OHV V-twin engine and four-speed transmission.
The online auction, called the Dr. George A. Renaker Collection, is open for bidding through June 12.
Auctioneer John Malone says he has received inquiries from Harley fans worldwide.
“I’ve talked with people from across the U.S., Dubai, Japan, England and Germany,” he said. “The Harley is one of 107 produced. The bike is extremely rare and appears to be all original with period accessories.”
In addition to the Harley’s rarity, Malone said its original condition appeals to many collectors. “We are selling this bike as we found it. The dust, grease, wear and tear are all yours,” he said. “We were too afraid to make it shine.”
Malone is unsure how many of the 107 motorcycles produced still exist. “After hundreds of hours searching, we couldn't find a single one,” he said.
For more information about the motorcycle, call Malone at 870-236-6117.
