1949 Harley-Davidson FL
Engine no. 49FL11528
While the flathead WLA is best known as the Harley that went to war, bigger models also served in the military, as evidenced by the Pierce collection's 1949 Panhead done up in olive drab livery. Besides the paint, a heavy-duty cargo rack differentiates the Army model from its civilian counterpart, as does the genuine Harley-Davidson siren mounted to the front fender, a friction device operated by the revolution of front tire and activated by a lever on the handlebars.
