Description for luxury vehicle WWII Military Harley Davidson - 42 WLA - Restored Original

We bought the bike in 1992 from a guy here in Tacoma - I rode it around the yard there for a minute & it runs like new when we picked it up. It's been in one of my garages for 24 yrs when we brought it.


BIKE'S CONDITION: let me emphasize this bike was completely professionally restored to like new condition. Many new parts - then still available from surplus stocks - were used in the restoration. The engine was completely rebuilt, tranny, bearings, seals etc. were replaced at time of restoration. Mechanically this bike is in like new condition and could be ridden every day if desired. If you had a new WLA that had been in a shipping crate since 1944 & pulled it out it would look exactly like this bike - and I have a copy of the Army's uncrating instructions for Military 45 V Twin.


NEW - WLA was serviced 4/6/16 - battery took a charge, bike runs beautifully. Had bike fully serviced - engine tuned - generator & relay working fine. Engine is tight & needs to be broken in by owner following manual - we will explain. License it & ride it.


Videos of bike running and being ridden - as follows:
starting & running: https://youtu.be/g-rEh0MfQ-o
Riding WLA: https://youtu.be/sXLxG5LCfho


No title but have all ownership docs - original bill of sale are correct & in hand. Was inspected for licensing by state patrol passed in 1992.

BUYER NOTE: if buyer does not contact me directly to close purchase within 48 hrs of auction close then we will re-list & move to the next buyer.


The NADA blue book lists the bike for very good cond. = $16,000, and excellent cond. = $30,000 - see here: http://www.nadaguides.com/Motorcycles/1942/Harley-Davidson/WLA-45ci/Values

I emailed with Dale Walksler of Wheels through time motorcycle museum - he also did a TV show "what's in the barn" on ​velocity TV
​. They have a nice collection of these military harleys and he confirmed the value of my bike and agreed with NADA. Here is the museum web site: http://www.wheelsthroughtime.com/military-might/

Lastly - another bike similar to this one - a 42 XA which was one of 999 produced & I sold one in 1998 myself just sold this last jan. for $​28​,​6​00 at the Las Vegas auction.
