1929 Morgan Aero
In 1908 English engineer Harry Morgan began developing his first three-wheeler, aimed at trials competition for the 1909 season in Malvern, Worcestershire England. The core of his three-wheeled “cycle car” design, the Morgan Runabout, was a central steel tube running the length of the car, its power plant, a V-Twin sitting up front driving the rear wheel. The “sliding pillar” suspension was noted as the earliest independent suspension used on a car. A swingarm mounted the chain driven rear wheel. As Morgan’s designs developed, some machines ran a pair of chains to the rear, each transferring a different final drive ratio providing a two-speed drive. Clearly Morgan took some innovative approaches to developing his two passenger vehicle. Morgan’s home country, England, also levied lower road taxes on three-wheeled vehicles, and operator licensing was easier, a sales advantage many British of.
About 30,000 machines were manufactured at Morgan’s plant in Malvern, England between 1909 and 1953, with a number of others being produced under license by Darmont Morgan in France. Four wheel Morgans came about in 1936 but production and updates of the classic three-wheeler continued. The three-wheeler was revived as a design around 2011 using S&S engines similar to Harley-Davidson’s design. Weight of the new machine was about 1200 pounds.
This fine 1929 Morgan Aero will be among hundreds of motorcycles and thousands of pieces of memorabilia offered in the John Parham Estate Collection Mecum Auction at the National Motorcycle Museum, Anamosa, Iowa, September 6 – 9, 2023.

1947 Harley Davidson Knucklehead EL sidecar rig.

In 1936 dealers and customers welcomed their first big twin overhead valve bike. Considered more efficient and durable, the 61 cubic inch EL and later 74 cubic inch FL had remarkable styling; to this day the Pre-War ELs and FLs are widely appreciated.

How did the new big twin work? By comparison, most records show a 1917 J model produced about 16HP, a JD about 24HP, the JDH about 29HP, the VL about 30HP. But the first EL was up to 40 horsepower. Of course, in that time the bike’s weight went from about 350 pounds to 565 for that 1936 EL, or Knucklehead as they became known decades later. Still, American riders craved the torque and the highway-ready massiveness of this machine, great for two-up riding or pulling a sidecar. In general, today’s big twin Harley-Davidsons have quite a bit in common with the original EL, and changes were gradual.

This fine Harley-Davidson Knucklehead sidecar rig will be among hundreds of motorcycles and thousands of pieces of memorabilia offered in the John Parham Estate Collection Mecum Auction at the National Motorcycle Museum, Anamosa, Iowa, September 6 – 9, 2023.
