1942 Harley WLA Flathead Bobber

Thank God There's Harleys...   So, let's show them!

Andy from Woringen, Germany sent us these photos of his magnificent 1942 WLA Harley Flathead Bobber which is a true oldschool motorcycle.

Andy: "Here are some pictures of my 1942 Harley WLA which I completely rebuilt in Bobberstyle."

Andy is not sure which parts have been replaced by a previous owner, but he assures us that the engine, transmission, frame, springer fork and the tank are original. New parts include the Joe Hunt magneto, fork springs, seat, footboards, WRTT exhaust and the Shinko SHR 240 Classic Series MT 90-16 tires

Here's some close-up photographs of the Harley Flathead engine. These 45 cubic inch low compression engines of the WLA Army Liberator motorcycles were designed for durability rather than speed.
