      The rocker cans were used in the mid twenties. If the Harley advertising has been repainted it more than likely was another brand of oil originaly. If was a all original Harley can, it would be worth $800.00 to $1200.00. As a repaint, probably $75.00 t0 $175.00 for it's decorator value. The repaint is very well done.
