Harley produced the original WLA model for the U.S. Army during and around World War II. It was based on a civilian model, the WL, but the paint scheme, the accessories and the solo seat gave the WLA model a unique look. A French motorcycle fan restaured now a vintage military Harley – but there’s a catch. This isn’t a restaured bike, it’s actually a modern 883 wrapped in WL bodywork.

The 883 model is equipped with a 12 Volt electrical system, modern lights, modern brakes, modern switchgear, including electric start and a Sportster 883 V-Twin engine. All in all, the bike just looks magnificent.
