Pakelo HD: the perfect Harley oil
Last Sunday, 18th June, Pakelo Lubricants hosted by its headquarters in Verona an Harley Davidson’s assembly from the Moto Club “Harleygiro of Arcole”. This fourth edition of the Harleygiro was actually a lucky one which reunited about 150 Harleys giving satisfaction to all the organizers. From 8:30 a.m. Pakelo has been the gathering place for the bikers who wanted to sign up for the event and have a breakfast listening to some rock music.
At 10:30 a.m. the lubricant company’s yard was completely covered by any kind Harley. Among them even six vintage models kindly brought by a passionate collector that were set into motion during the morning. The historic models comprehended also a 1936 Coca Cola trike built in New Orleans and used by street traders to sell Coke and an orange colored side-car used by engineering workshops to deliver cars to their customers. Furthermore, there were also some rare racing models:
- Harley N°44 (1974): a 750 cc model that was driven during the World Championship;
- XR 900 Harley N°77 (1962): a 900cc, 1003 engine model that run in Daytona, third of nine specimens around the world;
- KR Harley N°12 (1958): a 750 cc model with dirt-track side valve.
- Harley N°1: It is a unique model known as “thunder”, a 102 cc and a weight of 136 kg.
The mood was particularly familiar and easygoing even though people didn’t know each other very well, they were all sharing the same passion: the one for Harley Davidsons.
Pakelo Lubricants is proud of hosting every year such a constantly growing event and to make the bond for Harleys much closer it conceived a dedicated line of engine oils called HD MBK.

Finally, the first in class among Pakelo lubricants for Harleys is MULTI HD 3 MBK (SAE 15W-50), a fully synthetic version suitable for the lubrication of the engine, primary chain case and transmission.
