3 x US army Harley Davidson WLA Liberator WW 2 + siren !!
I just met some survivors of the second world war , as you know the US army
used H.D. or harley's to liberate Europe from Adolf Hitler , only on these
machines the guns are not allowed in Holland , so a bit fake. ( harley

koude start cold start 42WLA Harley Davidson Liberator
Built in 1944, but still going strong. This Harley was delivered to Greece
under te Lend-Lease Act. In Greece the Harley's were stored on a pile as
scrap on a deserted airfield. In the late 1970's a smart dutchman bought
the whole pile as scrap en had it transported to Holland. There all the
bikes were placed in a big hall and sold. You could just pick one, pay hfl
3000 (appr. USD 1400) and go home with a complete motorcycle, just as it
was in WW2 . Of course I bought one, put new tires on it and a new battery,
fresh oil and petrol and it was ready for the road. I have it for more then
30 years now....

1948 Harley-Davidson WL Flathead
Purchased this bike from a builder in Chicago named Billy Favata.
(billyvintageiron is his website) It's a very interesting bike and was
featured in the February 2010 Issue #95 of The Horse magazine.
As you can see/hear in the video it still needs a bit of tuning and
adjustment but otherwise a really nice ride.
