Harley Davidson 1928 JDH Twin Cam

In 1928 Harley-Davidson offered its ‘Two Cam’ racing engine in a street legal motorcycle for the first time, it was called the Model JDH and it was one of the fastest motorcycles you could buy anywhere in the world.

The reason 1928 was chosen for the debut of the Model JDH was relatively simple – it was to be the first year that Harley would install brakes on the front and back wheels, and it would have been too dangerous to sell a motorcycle fitted with the racing derived twin cam without plenty of stopping power.

At its heart was a 1200cc F-head V-twin with a red line of 5000 RPM and special lightweight magnesium alloy pistons with a domed top for higher compression, which necessitated additional cooling fins on the cylinders.

The fact that the model was only produced for two years and the fact that the production numbers were relatively low (between 1,800 and 2,500) have resulted in them being hugely collectible. It isn’t known how many survived but the onset of the Great Depression followed by the Second World War likely contributed to the demise of many of them.
