The Harley-Davidson J introduced several new features to the H-D line, including a rounded fuel tank, and models with the 3-speed transmission, a kickstarter instead of pedals.

The penultimate year of production for the J series, the ’28 J’s were offered in all kinds of model trims, with and without sidecars. The base model J was $310, and Harley sold 4,184 of them. For more information on the J series, check out this profile from Classic American Iron.

This specific Harley-Davidson J (VIN: 28 J 2188) has just 50 miles on an engine rebuild, which included new rods, pistons, crank pins, bushings, and more. The seller put this bike together for the 2012 Cannonball, and notes that because of this, it’s not a show bike – it’s a runner. The hand painted pin-up girl on the tank is a nice touch.
