No expense was spared when building this Knucklehead tribute. Over 50k went into this build. Built by a Harley Dealer on Long Island (same shop that built all Billy Joel's tribute bikes) no stone was left unturned creating the ultimate Knucklehead tribute that you can jump on and ride daily. The bike only has 656 miles!

"In 2005, Billy Joel approached two fellow Long Islanders – Rob Schneider, owner of Lighthouse Harley-Davidson and Bill Blackford, General Manager, about doing a retro look to his new Harley-Davidson Sportster model. Billy ‘new scoot’ turned heads everywhere he went.
Soon after the completion and success of his Sportster, Billy decided to try his hand once again – this time with a 2005 Harley-Davidson Springer Classic. The result, a 1940’s Knucklehead look that even the old-timers thought was real vintage iron. The response was so overwhelming that Billy and Rob decided to form 20th Century Cycles to build one-of-a-kind ‘non-production’ bikes “for the discerning buyer.”"
These builds are very rare and no longer being built. The other builds reside in Billy's museum 20th Century Cycles.
