1942 Civillianized Harley Davidson WLA, True Original Barn Find

"You are looking at a 1942 Harley Davidson WLA barn find. . . It has been civillianized as you can see, not all parts are for a 1942, but most everything is original Harley Davidson parts. I was going to get it unstuck, make it run & ride it as is, but unfortunately i have to part with it. It comes to the new owner with a clean title, & unaltered VIN pad, which matches the title as a 1942 Harley WLA.

Look closely at the pictures, it has the original Goodyear super eagle tires (poor condition) that hold air, it rolls nicely, the throttle works, the spark advance is movable, but needs cleaned/greased. The front brake works, has big twin rockers & brake assembly, the rear brake is free & works as well. Has 16" KH wheels, inline springer fork, correct M88 Linkert

Tanks look to be in good usable condition with the usual cleaning. Did not get to play with the motor or trans. The transmission fill plug is wired to the handlebar, as i received it. I was going to pull & rebuild the motor & trans & ride it as is because it is only original Harley once! Forced to part with it, but now you have a chance to build your dreams. I can be reached at slim42wl @ gmail for more pics or direct questions. Sorry, no off site deals or negotiating!"
