In production from 1957 to 1985, the Harley-Davidson Ironhead, along with the Knucklehead and Panhead, were popular bases for the chopper and bobber movements of the 1950s and 1960s.



Straight pipes roaring spent hydrocarbon
Engine contact the beast awakened
Vibrating power waiting to explode
Bonds of society now forsaken

Streetlights reflecting on polished chrome
Meditative motoring metronome
Pushrod and valve making music mechanical
Primitive liberty psychological

Ironhead, Ironhead
Throttle opened to full bore
V-twin thunder echoes in cold air
Denim and leather wind blown hair

Final bastion of the individual
Echoes of cowboys past conceptual

Straining against the onrushing air
Piercing the night every nerve aware
Standing alone with steel resolution
Redemption heavy metal absolution
