Lot Details
1942 Harley-Davidson WLA
Engine no. 42WLA64560
Starting in 1940, some 90,000 WLA and WLC (Canadian military) models rolled off Milwaukee production lines before WWII hostilities ceased, the so-called "Liberators" seeing action in just about every theater of the war and serving with most of the U.S. allies.

The Pierce family's WLA, finished in Military Police livery, is unusually complete, equipped with the rare canvas and plexiglass fairing, metal leg shields, heavy-duty skidplate, special airbox, blackout lights, gun scabbard, front toolbox, folding spade, leather saddlebags, even a first-aid kit stocked with period bandages and tourniquets!
