Addendum: Please note this bike is being sold on Bill of Sale only.

This Harley-Davidson WLDR motorcycle has a side valve V-twin of 45.3-cid, rated at 29-hp at 5000 rpm. This is a competition special engine, featuring extra high compression with a frame specially designed for racing. This machine is finished in white. It ran at Daytona, as well as in other events by Gib Keller, of Ohio. The 1941 racing models were delivered stripped of all road equipment for the first time. The lack of lights allowed use of a magneto for the ignition, thus there was no generator. Those omissions lighten the machine for better handling and more speed.
