I have decided to sell off my Harley 45” Flathead race bike to fund some other projects. This bike is pieced together from parts that I acquired from friends, swap meets, Craig’s List, E-bay, etc. First and foremost, I DON’T have a title for the bike or motor. It has an “assigned” VIN number stamped into the VIN pad, which appears to have been done many years ago. The 14H number plates are not included with the sale and will be removed. Engine: In assembling the motor, I used a lot of performance parts from Paul Friebus at American Cycle Fabrication (ACF), Bloomsburg, PA. Surplus/replacement cases with matching 1945 belly numbers (45-2610). As previously stated, the left case has an “assigned” VIN number stamped into it. The VIN boss has not been ground down. OEM WR flywheels and connecting rods trued and balanced by ACF. OEM cylinders and pistons are .010 over. The cylinders have been ported, relieved, and oversize valves installed, along with WR/Knucklehead intake nipples also by ACF. OEM aluminum heads decked, relieved, and clearance for the oversize valves. No broken, cracked, or chipped fins anywhere on the heads or cylinders. Linkert M53A1 carburetor rebuilt with rubber ducky float and 4 bolt WR intake manifold installed. Snap throttle also installed. Friebus C grind cam set installed. Four vein oil pump upgrade. Fairbanks Morse-HD magneto. Inline oil filter installed on return line from Marty at USA Racing. Dual exhaust. Transmission: The Harley 3-speed trans was NOS before I installed it in this bike. Date code F-3. Everything works as it should and it still has most of its original OD green paint remaining. Later style shift drum was installed. Frame: The frame is nice and uncut, with the only modification being the tabs that I welded to the top of the seat post casting for the solo seat pivot. It could easily be removed if the buyer wanted to run a pogo seat. It has a #4 hallmark on the neck casting. Palmer’s book dates it 1942. General: 19” front and 16” rear star hub wheels with Firestone ANS tires. The rear wheel has bead screws installed. OEM Harley springer fork with 7/8” stem and big twin rockers (servi-car). The front leg has a #20 hallmark. Note: the front leg has a very slight bend in the right tube. I have run this fork on several different bikes with no problems, but I wanted to make it known (see pic). Original Flanders parts: #8 handlebars (stamped on the underside), 4 0 risers (stamped), and inline top clamp. OEM tanks are 47-50 WL. Shift gate is from a servi-car. OEM bobbed, 3-piece, wide brace rear fender, which I believe is 46-48. Leather Bates style solo seat (possibly Selli?) and genuine Bates leather fender pad. WR foot pegs and clutch pedal attached to OEM straps. The rear brake is Harley WL. The bike starts easy and runs really well. It was run at “The Race of Gentlemen” last October at Pismo Beach, CA. It will make somebody a great C-class or TROG racer, or you could get a title and put electrics on it to make it street legal.See it run on Youtube: https://youtu.be/-OTbf2oVaHk Please call (no text) 570-956-111eight or email hutchjr7@hotmail dot com with any questions. Thanks for looking.

This beautiful, show ready WLA had a complete frame off restoration in 2012. It’s had less than 300mis put on it since then. She starts on the 1st kick and purrs like a kitten. The tins are straight and the paint/chrome is beautiful. When you’re zipping down the road at 60 mph its almost impossible to believe this bike will be celebrating its 75th anniversary in a few short months. The Harley-Davidson WLA was produced to US Army specifications in the years during and around World War II. It was based on an existing civilian model, the WL, and is of the 45 solo-type, so called due to its 45-cubic-inch (740 cc) engine displacement and single-rider design.

======1942 WLA Harley Davidson 45" Flathead. Bike is titled as a WLA but I believe the bottom end was replaced on a WL. Bike does not appear to be converted from military. My guess is, the bottom end was replaced many years ago with a more readily available WLA. Bike also appears to have an original chrome front end which i would assume is from a VL. This is a great bike and fires right up. Bike has some reproduction parts including dash, speedo and a few other odds n ends. Paint is in good shape with one deep scratch on the rear fender. I have the front fender, bottom half of rear fender, and other original items for the bike that were taken off. Bike is converted to 12 volts with a new electrical system. Bike has original linkert carb. Rear exhaust port on cylinder has an old repair done to it. Bike is overall in great condition for its age and would make an excellent runner for anyones collection.+++++

1947 Harley Davidson WL Solo. This bike underwent a complete restoration in 1984-1985, I have a photo album documenting the process. The bike was sold to Thurnall's Harley Davidson in 1996. I purchased the bike in 2005 and it has been stored in my climate controlled warehouse since. We pulled it out this week, cleaned the carburetor and fuel lines and added oil. I connected a new gel-cell battery to the bike and it started on the third kick. The engine sounds great. The engine has matching belly numbers (45-6569).
