    Very nice bike, I have a cousin who has a fully restored 1929 Harley, took him 10 years to finish it.

                Can't help it Frank... lol

                The first memory I have of motorcyles is that bike... I remember my uncle having one that somehow he brought back from when he was in WWII complete with a side car. He rode it everywhere, I have very fond memories of riding with him on that thing.

                        Wasn't it someone on here that found a picture of this model that a guy in England made out of a modern sportster frame and engine? Looked just as good as the original (like in this thread, the '42), but up-to-date so easier to maintain. I too would give my right nut to have one of the originals, but hell even one of the 'modern' ones would do just as well for me. Anyone wanna buy a kidney? Used but can still whoop any amount of beer that can be thrown at it.

                            Yochanon this is for your WLA fix, 27 pages and some videos. I would be worth going to Europe just to see if you could find some project bikes if one had the means.
