Meet "Effie" our 1915 Harley-Davidson Twin 3 speed

Monday, March 8, 2010


Effie is in California!
After shipping her off to Honolulu she sat there for a few days waiting to get unloaded. Finally, she flew to LAX and was picked up and delivered to our friend Steve Huntzinger, who will take her apart and put her back together. Steve has promised to send some pictures of the motor being rebuilt for me.

Got the word she arrived safely while in Daytona at Bike Week freezing our butts off.

While in Florida we stopped at the Eustis AMCA Meet where we scrounged a few parts. An extra magento for the 1915 among the spoils!

Daytona was cold, but great. Did a bunch of book signings and was filmed for a CBS Sunday Morning segment on women motorcyclists. Checked out lots of friends and made some new ones. Loved the vintage races!

  1. Chris; absolutely great blog!! Loved it. Went through everything and am enjoying the entire story so far. Once again, you are my idle. How cool is that, riding that old girl. And what an experience. Take along some way to stay in touch. Check out my archived blogs about how this gal keeps it updated on her rides! Best of luck.
