Cry Wolff | MC M.C.

That antique exhaust note heard rumbling into the Westlake Inn Parking lot for the recent Dunlop RoadSmart II press intro turned out to be none other than Motorcyclist photo model, guest tester and all-around good guy Thad Wolff on his nearly restored and completely functional 1920 Harley-Davidson F-model (magneto only). Though the bike is ready to rip along at 70 mph, a single drum rear brake, no front brake and Coker clincher tires that could decide to part company with their rims at speed make discretion the only part of valor on this one. Unfortunately, Dunlop has no plans to produce radials to fit the 90-year-old Harley’s skinny rims at this time.
