1961 Harley-Davidson Servicar Custom

In 3 Wheels, America, Custom by AbhiLeave a Comment

Produced for nearly 40 years, the Servicar was a three-wheeler HD produced in an attempt to further expand their target customer base during the Great Depression. One of their selected targets was automotive mechanics, so this bike was designed to allow mechanics put their tools in the rear storage box to make house calls. It also had a tow hitch, so if a customer’s car was finished, the mechanic could take both vehicles to the client’s home, then ride the trike back. The flexibility of the platform also made it an interesting option for customizers – and here’s an example that was chopped by the original owner back in 1970.

This example (VIN: 61G61073) shows 25,741 miles, and the seller calls it a “straight up survivor chopper” as the majority of the work happened in 1970 in Chicago. The original owner rode it until 1994 and then it was put in a shed (as shown below) until 2020.

Adam Meltron of Meltron Cycle then found it, made it a runner, added an Art Himsl body (paint matched), 12″ over rigid front end, and 1950s Pontiac taillights.
