The Harley-Davidson WLA is a Harley-Davidson motorcycle that was produced to US Army specifications in the years during and around World War II. It was based on an existing civilian model, the WL, and is of the 45 solo type, so called due to its 45-cubic-inch (740 cm3) engine displacement and single-rider design. The same engine, in a slightly lower state of tune, also powered the three-wheeled Servi-Car (the “G” family), leading to the “solo” distinction.
This wonderful example we have on offer here today, is provided with many original components including the typical gun holster, both rear satchels and front ammunition container. Having been part of a private museum collection for many years, this very original and rare example represents an exquisite piece of military history.
This interesting 1944 Harley Davidson we have on offer today, has had careful and sparing use over recent years, and is presented today in good condition considering its age.
