1942 WLA Harley Oldschool Bobber
A Godess Flying into the Wind...
Scott sent us these photos of his friend Rob's great looking 1942 WLA Harley Oldschool Bobber motorcycle which is adorned with striking bomber nose art on the gastank.
The "A" in "WLA" stands for "Army". This was one of the many Harley Liberators produced by the Harley Davidson Motor Company for the US Army between 1940 and 1945.
Rob hand made the exhaust pipes.
Harley Oldschool Bomber Art
Rob's Harley WLA Liberator Bobber stands out of the crowd with her true oldschool bomber nose art on the gastank!
The "Miss Aligned" custom paintwork on Rob's Harley Liberator was inspired by the "Heavenly Body" and "Georgia Peach" nose art as displayed on WW2 B24 Liberator bombers. It resembles the classic pose of a godess flying into the wind.

Here's Rob's 1942 WLA alongside his friend Scott's 1946 WL. Both bikes are fine examples of the Harley Davidson Flathead oldschool bobber tradition and make a beautiful pair!
