Postby halcombrick » Mon Apr 06, 2015 8:19 pm



hey everybody, i was out for a ride the other day and i saw this setting out side at the end of a parking lot of an old garage, i rode by and seen a black harley,, no big deal but as i rode by i noticed the valve covers and had to turn around. just thought i would share this with everybody, i thought it was pretty cool but sad that its just setting outside and seems to be forgot about.

Go back and throw them an offer.

I'd definitely go back and talk to them about it. I'm wanting a Valk for my next bike, anyway. Preferably an Interstate model, but I'd take any if the price was right. I don't care, I just want to play with those 6 carbs :D
It's a shame to see that one just sitting outside in the weather.

Just the thought of how it would feel to pull on the throttle on that bike makes me........hubba hubba.

Just like the GW I bought , just sitting outside in the weather , no love for it . I convinced the ower to sell it to me . Now I get to shower it with TLC. Plus I have always wanted one after I seen my first one 33 years ago on the Talihina Drive .

Hard to tell from pics, but it looks in REALLY nice shape - chrome, paint, etc. look in excellent condition!!

Could be a sweet "barn find". Even if you don't want to keep it for yourself, you could make some $$$ off it selling it to someone who wants one!

Shame to see it just sitting...it needs some love!

I think it's the Clay Smith "Mr. Horsepower" emblem. Pretty cool, actually!
