1942 Harley Davidson WLA Street Tracker/Bobber

This is an original Harley Davidson WLA that waited 25 years for the current owner to find time to restore and create. The result is a stunning, quick and dependable street bobber. Designed to look and run as the flat tracker of the days, this machine is a classic quality build. This machine has 1630 miles on it after the build and it has settled in very nice. The work was managed and completed by Gary Lyons with an engine build by Dale Walkser. This is a complete rebuild of all internal parts with quality labor. The bike is correctly titled and registered in the State of Florida. It is ready for you to polish and ride! This bike will run 95 mph with the rider sitting straight up
