And now, for something totally different...

We've featured a few Harley-Davidsons (including a nice race-ready XR750 and  a 1978 Harley XLCR ), the Servi-Car is a Harley that even some of the most die-hard V-twin fans aren't familiar with.

Produced from 1932 all the way through 1973, the Servi-Car was a genuine 3-wheeler. Widely used by car dealerships, repair shops and as a delivery vehilce for all manner of businesses, police stations around the country also bought many of them and used them for emptying parking meters and other utilitarian duties.

This particular Servi-Car is a 1942 model, and was previously titled to the Muskegon Coca-Cola Bottling company. Prior to that it was titled to the Muskegon, Mich.,  police department. The seller states that it has new tires, a rebuilt motor and transmission, an aftermarket carburetor (though the owner still has the original Linkert carb), and that it runs and drives great.
