If you are a knucklehead owner, you know the frustration of trying to buy parts. These engines first appeared in 1936 and were produced until 1947. As an overhead valve V-twin engine, it boasts two valves per cylinder and a lot of power, speed and performance ability.
Finding Harley Davidson knucklehead parts doesn’t have to be difficult. There are some places to buy and some places to avoid, so let’s start with where not to make a purchase first.
Online Private Sales
For used parts or reclaimed Harley Davidson knucklehead parts from old scrapped bikes or non-working bikes, it may be tempting to turn to online auctions as well as online listings by private sellers.
While it is possible to get a good deal, this is a “buy at your own risk” type of transaction. Unlike an in-person private sale where you examine the part prior to buying, with online transactions you will have to pay first. Even with a seller that allows for returns, the buyer will be on the hook for return shipping.
There is also the need to take the seller’s word for the condition and the specifics of the part. Typically the individuals making these sales have no knowledge of bikes; they are just selling something they bought from someone else. This can lead to problems with the year and model and even the condition of the part.
Online Aftermarket Sales
An ideal way to buy aftermarket Harley Davidson knucklehead parts that are brand new is to use a reputable online parts supplier. These companies only deal in new parts, and they offer customer support, highly competitive prices, and a top selection.
Before buying from these companies for any knucklehead or Harley Davidson parts, make sure to read the company’s policies on returns. If you have any questions about parts, give them a call and take advantage of the parts experts to make sure the order contains everything needed for the repair.
