1932 Harley-Davidson RL Sport Solo

Newly introduced in 1932, the “R” series superseded the “D.” Available in three versions, R, RL, and RLD, the differences being in compression ratios and carburetor size, resulted in maximum speed variations of 5-10 miles per hour. Lubrication was still by total loss. This machine is in original condition, stored in the Milwaukee, Wisconsin, area for many years.

This is a lovely bike, but its sheet metal and paint are from 1935. Some optional colors were available in 1932, but the standard color was Olive Green, with contrasting pin stripes on the fenders and around the Harley Davidson tank decal. Harley used this color on bikes through the 1920s up to 1932, when the Great Depression forced them to find new and snappier colors, starting in 1933.
