1929 Harley-Davidson Peashooter

The Harley-Davidson AA was a motorcycle produced by Harley-Davidson and more commonly known as the Peashooter. The 350cc class was introduced in 1926 to make dirt track racing safer, reducing the speeds that the 500cc and 1,000cc machines were attaining. But with their development, these 350s were almost as fast as the 500s. The Harley-Davidson was very popular in speedway racing events in the USA, Europe, and Australia. These models were always refered to as "peashooters" due to the staccato bark of the exhaust.
