1942 Harley-Davidson WLA “Flathead”

Following the attack on Pearl Harbor the previous December, in 1942 we were at war. U.S. troops and their allies would be fighting battles in Europe, in the Pacific, and in Africa during the year. Rationing of food, gas, and other items began to support the war effort. Sacrifices were being made on the home front to support our troops but many brave men and women gave the ultimate sacrifice before the war was over.

1942 Indian Model 841

During WWII in 1941, Field Marshall Rommel began his assault on Africa. Anticipating that we were going to be entering into some desert warfare, the government commissioned Indian and Harley-Davidson to build 1000 desert worthy motorcycles.
