A little side project!

 

My father in law owns and rides a Harley WLA. He competes in the Liege - Nancy - Liege Rally every single year. A classic bike challenge.

This year his bike broke down and for the first time he wasn't able to finish. So this is my gift of comfort to him.

I'm using the Miniart kit.

Nice idea and subject, Jeroen. Some years ago I built a MiniArt bicycle for my wife, because she owned one of those classics. It was not an easy built, with a lot of tiny PE-parts, like chain, pedals and wheels, but she liked it a lot. I'm sure your father in law will like your effort too.

Cheers Rob

Looking awesome Jeroen!

As for the real WLA, what a machine! I never rode a WLA, but I had a WLC for a couple years, (same bike but a heavier front end), and it’s true what they say, “a 45 does 45”. LOL. You just could’t Stop those old things. Spark, oil, and fuel, and they’d run.

Hi guys! Found a better glass dome. Also found a ww2 map with US markings. The place where my father in law broke down was not on the map (Rendeux) but i found the location and added it myself with letters from other places. I will add a layer of plexiglass to sandwich the lot.
