rodding is alive and well in the USA and in 1955 Harley Davidson is
right there with the KHK. Offering "Exceptional performance, that extra
tremendous acceleration and that burst of power and speed the instant
you touch the throttle on the KHK for 1955." Besides all the normal hand
built KHK goodies the 55 offered mirror polished ports and cylinder
heads, including the outside of the heads. The Factory advised to order
yours early, as "A special model like the KHK is not produced in the
normal channels of production. To get that extra horsepower takes time
and loving care. The quantities, that can be produced, are rather
limited and sufficient time must be allowed to fill orders. The extra
net charge for this model is modest in comparison with its` extra
performance and the joy it will bring to the fortunate owner." ($68;
Some quotes from a 55 sales ads.) Sounds enticing, to say the least. Facts about the 1955 Model KH: To
help transmit this fine power more reliably and to expedite
transmission repair the 55 received stronger cases with a `trap door`
design built in. This allowed complete overhaul of the transmission
through the primary side without having to split the cases as with
earlier models. This was actually a running change in 54. Better
lubrication of the mainshaft right bearing is achieved by casting a
pocket in the case to collect and feed oil to this bearing. Once again
transmission gears are improved for strength. C-shaft third and M-shaft
second are now forged from 4615 steel, an improvement over the
previously employed 8617 bar stock. Other changes include: Stronger
right side transmission case, longer shifter retaining bolt on access
door holds tighter, larger starter gear retaining nut, steel wear plate
installed between kicker shaft and cases and a larger key is used on the
flywheel sprocket shaft. Transmission and engine specs remain the same
except more fine tuning on the motor and C-shaft sprocket size went from
21 to 22 teeth. Stock wheels are now 18" with 18" by 3.50" tires std.
and larger ones optional. The C 1026 steel tubing used in previous frame
construction is replaced with chrome moly for 55. The frame has a
slight neck angle change and for the first time re-enforced front
downtubes. This was complimented with one inch shorter fork tubes
resulting in one inch of increased trail. This improved handling. To
keep the front fender's duck tail from hitting the front Safety Guard it
was simply cut off. To help handle the massive torque the rear wheel
hub was greatly increased in size and the rear spokes were up-graded to
BigTwin size. Earlier wheels were being torn apart from the torque. An
oil port in the clutch cable was introduced for ease of lubricating. The
speedometer head size is increased for durability and accuracy.
Previous speedos had short head life and bouncy action. The jewel for
the pivot shaft has been increased in hardness and a spring dampener
added. The entire speedo is now rubber mounted as is the internal
mechanism. The steering dampener is changed with a tension spring added
to hold the adjustment. The spark and tool box cover studs have been
increased in size. A re-designed Buddy Seat is offered with more padding
and a Royalite cover replacing the leather one. Gas tanks remain the
same except the emblems now carry the HD V-`swoosh` emblems. The front
fenders carry either a KH or KHK 1955 Medallion. 1954 facts and figures
are carried over to 55, except noted above. The 1955 KHs and KHKs were
available in the following colors: Brilliant Black, Aztec Brown, Atomic
Blue, Glamorous Hollywood Green, Pepper Red, Anniversary Yellow and
Silver or White for Police duty. As before, tanks can be ordered in one
std. color and fenders another. For $10 extra you could get the
Hollywood Green paint on the tank, fenders and spark coil cover and oil
tank. The 1955 Ks were American-made middleweights with distinct
features and advantages over all similar-type motorcycles.
