Description
Lot #637.1 - This beautiful classic Harley-Davidson 42WLA is truly a piece of American history, as it played an important role in WWII. Harley-Davidson produced the 42WLA for the U.S. Army and their Allies during WWII. The 42WLA was manufactured over a period of four years, yet every bike would receive an engine number starting with 42WLA. The WLAs did not receive a frame tag or frame number and were identified by the engine number. Based on this bike's engine number, it is considered a Type 1, which was built between September 1 and December 10, 1941. The 42WLA motorcycle was recognized as a sturdy and reliable vehicle for its excellence in production. The Harley-Davidson motorcycle company received the Army-Navy ā€œEā€ award on May 12, 1943. This machine has great history traveling different parts of the world. It eventually made its way to Canada, where it was treated to a complete nut-and-bolt restoration. The vision of the restoration was to build a civilian bike rather than a military bike. The vision came to life and turned out amazing. It sports a gorgeous color combination of green and black. The brown leather seat complements the colors perfectly. All of the trim work is in beautiful condition. The original 739cc engine was completely rebuilt and runs great. The engine is paired with a 3-speed manual transmission. It has less than 100 miles since completion and is in show-quality condition throughout. Included with the sale of this motorcycle is a 1942 GMC CC150 3/4-ton pickup and custom trailer. Both were fully restored and match this motorcycle. The combination of the truck, motorcycle and trailer draws a lot of attention. From the MS Classic Cars Collection. **SOLD AS A PACKAGE WITH LOT #637 AND LOT #637.2**
