convey. Harley-Davidson side-valve bikes kept the company going during the
depths of the Great Depression. During World War II, some 80,000 Harley
flatheads served the American and Allied forces, and kept the company's
motorcycle building expertise at ...

which had been the dominant design in nineteenth-century internal combustion
engines, long after most other manufacturers had abandoned the design in favor
of the flathead engine. Today we think of the flathead as a relic from another era,
something only used today because it looks cool in a period-correct '32 Ford hot

Bill Hariey campaigned for an overhead -valve 750, using the existing flathead
