:oops:
Hello world,
I try but I can not find. The empty weight (or full load) of the various models Panhead, FLAT and Knuck.
There are many models E EL F U. FL FLH ... etc but I can not find the weight anywhere, in any manual or on the Internet.
Can anyone help me?

Thank you, Augusto Bruno

G'day Augusto,

Hello Pete ... nice machine,
This is a good answer, merci,
FL or FLH Duo Glide: weight 280.
The first official response, a weight tested ....
My bad luck is that I'm too much of Switzerland, which looks at all the details.

Hydra 1957? With a straight frame? Wishbone frame? Knuck or Pan? And U models?

Thank you people for your answers and your engagement, Greetings

Augusto

G'day again,

I just found some registration papers for my 55 and it says
209 kgs, has spots and leather bags. Full oil tank, don't know about the gas level.

I wouldn't have thought there was 70kgs difference between those two bikes.


Cheers
Pete

Hello everyone again,
sorry if I insist, but it is very important that I have the weights of the various models Pans, Knuck, K, UL .... etc.

I try to dry weight or the maximum weights for different models.
It may seem silly, but I really need, so if all you tell me yours, I have only one response to date ...
If you look good, no one knows for sure what the Harley factory says !!!

Thanks, I like getting very, good day.

Augusto :shock:
