Interesting, what would you nominate? http://classic-harley.info/?p=878

I'm surprised Buzz didnt mention the 1928/29 JD two cam - he rode a 29 in the Cannonball. First twin cam Harley, I think.

I hate Buzz. Of coarse pure jealousy.

I got a good chuckle when the 71 Super Glide was mentioned. How Willie G. invented the idea to put a Sportster front end on a big twin. Yeah, real bikers had been doing that since the 50's with K model (Sportsters after 57) front ends on Knuckles and Pans, but when the factory does it, it's "innovative." The first thing everyone did was remove that boat tail fender and put a Sportster rear fender on it... I'll give him credit on the XLCR, too bad it never took off. That was a cool bike, but then I've always been partial to old Sportys.
