Here is to our Veterans. This weekend, I decided to ride only my 1942 WLA. For the record, the WLA was a bike produced by Harley-Davidson for the Military for use overseas in WWII. Mine is mostly a 1941-up with 1940 gas tanks. but the powerplant is 1942 WLA with a real early number. It for sure saw action in the big one. This bike is my workhorse, has never let me down and I have taught many a rider how to ride a handshift on. This bike gets ridden weekly.
