This must be one of the nicest Duo-Glides you will ever see. When I bought her ten years ago she had not been run for many years and lots of the original parts had been replaced or gone missing. She now runs beautifully and looks like the day she left the factory. Being 1959 she benefits from cheap classic insurance, free Road Tax and exemption from MOT. The bike has many very rare valuable original parts such as speedo, 59' tank and badges, fenders, (both of these I imported from the states), Briggs & Stratton locks with genuine B & S keys, Bubble bag carrier frame (took two years to find one of these), victory trumpet horn, upright tool box, and stainless steel air cleaner cover. Hand book, and '59 repro manual will be supplied with the bike.

Cost a lot more than £18,000 to buy and restore and that excludes many, many hours of labour.

As can be seen in the photos the bike has won many awards at local bike shows.

Anything you want to know please ask.

Frame: Genuine '59 frame and swing arm, both straight and no repairs - powder coated black new* swing arm bearings/seals/spindle
Wheels: Rebuilt star hubs with new spindles, spokes,  rims and new replica fifties whitewall tyres/tubes. Tyres have only done about 300 miles.
Forks: Rebuilt with new stanchions and bottoms, new head race bearings
Fenders/tanks/badges: Genuine OEM '59 painted to the '59 Duo-Glide design
Engine: Original crankcases, flywheels, rods, timing gears,and 'H' cam. New crankpin, main bearings, barrels, pistons, heads (lead free), valves, hydraulic tappets, and NOS tappet blocks. New V-twin replica oil pump.
Gearbox: Foot change. Rebuilt using original gear set with new bearings, lay and kick start shafts - works great
Carburettor: Fully rebuilt Linkert M74B body in excellent condition, all needles, jets butterfly, bearings, float, valves have been replaced. OEM air filter cover with K &N filter.
Clutch: Rebuilt mousetrap with new plates and springs
Primary Drive: I have converted this to belt as the total loss chaining oiling system left an embarassing slick every time I parked. I have the original chain and sprockets (all in good condition)  if you wish to convert it back to factory spec.
Electrics: These have been converted to 12 volt and electronic ignition. All 6 volts parts are available in good working order including a new 6v battery, and the genuine '59 'oil the bearing' generator. Conversion back to points is a 10 minute job if you require this.
Accessories: Bubble bags, screen, bumpers, carrier, auxillary seat springs, additional lighting etc are all correct design for a '59 model.

*When I use the word 'new' I refer to parts that were replaced as part of the restoration, the bike has done no more than  2000 miles since the first of these were fitted.

If you wish to organise collection then I understand the bldgroup charge about £109+vat for delivery anywhere in England or Wales.

What's a max bid?
Your max bid should be the highest amount you're willing to pay for an item.
We keep your max bid amount a secret from the seller and other bidders.
Max bidding example:
If a current bid is £20 and your max bid is £30, we bid £21 for you.
If no one else bids, you win and pay £21.
However, if someone else places a bid for £35, you will be out bid and the new highest bid on the auction will be £31. You will need to increase your max bid to more than £35 to be the highest bidder.
