A Look at the Harley-Davidson WLA Motorcycle

What sounds more American than a bike dubbed “The Liberator?" I will answer for you. Nothing, that’s what. Harley-Davidson’s WLA was used by the United States Army during the second World War, and just 88,000 were produced before peace was declared. But “The Liberator” wasn’t the only nickname it was known by, and soon people would be known to call it “the bike that won the war.” Motorcycles were commonly used in the war by couriers, police, escort work, and some scouting. In other words, motorcycles were a huge component to the success of the war, and that can continue to be seen today. Motorcycles are associated with freedom for a multitude of reasons, and it isn’t just because of the freedom of the wind in your hair. These military motorcycles play a massive part in U.S. history. 

Here's an infographic that sums up specs and other interesting facts about these beautiful machines and their builds so it is all in one convenient place for ya.
