11 legendary Harley-Davidsons (and 5 duds)

Cheapism Logo By Kris Scott of Cheapism | Slide 2 of 17: You can't write about legendary Harleys without including early models such as this one. The 11F was the first model to have a mechanically driven oil pump as well as a three-speed sliding gear transmission, which changed the game. These still occasionally go up for auction; one sold on Sotheby's in 2017 for more than $48,000. The listing notes the original price was $275 (adjusted for inflation, that’s about $7,000 in today’s dollars).Related: 23 Sports Collectibles That Scored Big at Auction
