@Damasthebiker,

Congrats on your acquisition. Great to see you keeping it running. Have you tried approaching HD for any assistance?

Since stock form is military dressing, I guess you have a blank canvas to start with if you are interested in restoring.

An unrestored 1942 WLA on display at the HD museum in Milwaukee.

Picture taken in Jan 2011.

Cheers.

Hi, No I dont wish to change any thing on this bike as of now - it has aged so gracefully over these years that it has almost turned into old wine. Moreover Harleys are know for their customisation so I dont see any point bringing it back to the stock military outfit. I really like the way it is PURE VINTAGE!

Congrats damas. You have achieved the unique distinction of attracting me to the Motorbikes section

Beautiful bike and all the best with your restoration effort. I love the way you have documented the history of the bike. Good to know there are people like you who follow their heart! Inspirational.
