-1961 HaRLeY DaVidSoN KRTT-



A proper 1961 Harley Davidson KRTT with 1963 body work. This 1961 KRTT was owned and raced by John Crawford, an apprentice to Albert Einstein. Crawford would ultimately advance to a full professorship at Princeton University without ever going to college.

In the movie "I.Q.", Ed Walters, a character loosely based on the relationship Crawford had with Einstein, is seen riding a street KR. Crawford had two KRs, one a dirt track bike and this one wich he road raced. It has been restored to 1963 configuration and is in outstanding condition and correct in all respects as Crawford raced it at the Daytona 200 miler.
