1952 Harley-Davidson / Billy Huber Speedway Record

Filed under: Harley Davidson — Tags: , — dadsvintageads @ 2:32 pm

America’s greatest speedway record held by Harley-Davidson.

Langhorne 100-Miler, stage for motorcycling’s outstanding achievement!

Again on Langhorne’s one-mile dirt speedway, Harley-Davidson riders set another brilliant record for speed and stamina. Leading a string of eight Harley-Davidson speedsters across the finish line, Billy Huber completed the 100 grueling laps in 66 minutes, 17.30 seconds, an average of 90.51 miles per hour. Here is a remarkable record for one-mile dirt tracks made under A.M.A. regulations…a speed record that stands among the world’s best! Fastest previous A.M.A. record was the 87.09 mph clocked by Jimmy Chann on a Harley-Davidson at the Langhorne speedway in 1949. Now, Huber’s better-than-90 miles per hour set last Labor Day provides a fitting climax to the sparkling records established over the years by Harley-Davidson. And these same outstanding qualities of performance together with unmatched riding comfort are built into every model of the complete Harley-Davidson line. See these American-made beauties today at your nearest Harley-Davidson dealer.

The 1953 Harley-Davidson Line

Harley-Davidson’s announcement of their 1953 models presents, we feel, probably the most attractive bid for the riders’ business ever made in their long and illustrious history. The program reaches into every niche and corner in the widely varied field of motorcycle uses.

The new Harley-Davidson model “165” two-stroke replaces the popular “125.” New, larger 10.1 cu. in. engine delivers much higher performance.

The Harley-Davidson Model “K” has created the greatest sensation of any model to emerge from the Milwaukee concern since the introduction of the O.H.V. “61” in 1936.

The Harley-Davidson O.H.V. “74” features engine advancements. The high performance and roadability of this “Stalwart” of the line is world famed.
