Harley-Davidson WL A Description

Magnificent 1942 WLA! Harley-Davidson produced about 70.000 WLA and WLC military motorcycles for the US Army and their Allies during WW2. Spare parts for an additional 30.000 bikes were also produced.
WLAs were extensively by US Troops for messenger and Military Police duties and thousands were supplied to other countries thru Lend Lease Agreements.
These bikes were nicknamed ‘Liberators’ in Europe since they were ridden by troops liberating their towns and countries from German occupation. The name has stuck ever since…. One of Belgium’s most remembered ‘Liberators’ is commemorated every year in the Belgian town of Peruwelz where James Carroll of the 628th Tank Destroyer was the first GI to enter the village on 3rd September 1944 after 4 long years of German occupation.
The WLA motorcycle was soon recognized as a sturdy and reliable vehicle and for their Excellence in Production, the Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Company received the Army-Navy “E” Award on May 12th, 1943. Only industries that participated in wartime production were eligible to receive this award. The award ceremony was elaborate, with high-level officers present and airborne fly-overs. William H Davidson received the banner from Colonel Otjen, who called the Harley Davidson workers: “Soldiers of the Production Line”. Employees of the company that received the award were entitled to wear an ‘E’ Pin on the lapel of their jackets.
The award would be mentioned in all future advertising as a sign of support to the War Effort…..
This WLA is highly original, she is in good running condition, recently serviced, ready to ride. Starts on first or second kick.  An easy bike to ride. Own a piece of history. Call John for details 770 447 6945 x 20, we ship world-wide.
