Harley-Davidson found in the toilet

It must be the ultimate dream for any car or motorcycle lover to enter a barn in a remote place and find the vehicle you have always dreamed of having. Especially when it has stood the hands of time and is in mint condition. I have heard some stories before, but this is so cool we had to share it with you.

It is the story of a Harley Peashooter that was found in the toilet of a mine. In the 40's a Mr Bicker heard stories of a Harley that was left behind in a mine in Western Australia. It was located after an extensive search and it was in mint condition. Quite extraordinary after sitting in the men's room for 20 years. The owner could not get it started and decided to sell it. At home, Mr Bicker easily managed to start it. In January this year, the HD Peashooter auctioned for $125.800 at Bonhams Vegas Auction. Read the full story on pipeburn.com. Thanks Jonathan for sending us the info!
