Spanish document

The 74-cubic inch (1,200cc) OHV Harley-Davidson Panhead was launched in 1948. It was the post-war successor to the very worthy 48hp, 74 cubic inch OHV FL Knucklehead.

But Harley-Davidson didn’t launch the bike as the “Panhead”. As with the “Knucklehead” sobriquet, that name was coined post-launch by H-D aficionados seeking a more “friendly” moniker for the bike that was officially designated simply as the FL.

The new engine produced only an extra 2bhp, or thereabouts, but it ran smoother, quieter, cooler, and it boasted more simplified modern styling (as opposed to the aircraft engine inspired look of “The Knuck”).
