1942 Harley Davidson UL Sidevalve specifications, pictures, reviews and rating

1942 Harley Davidson WLA. During WW2 Harley Davidson produced nearly 90 000 motorcycles for military use. Army demanded short, medium-size bikes with ample ground clearance, so Harley Davidson had to abandon for a time its long, heavy big twins. Some of these traditional bikes were supplied for civilian use, primarily police duty, but very few were bought by the army. 

Most company's effort during war was put in WLA and WLC models, based on earlier WL civilian model, but adjusted to US Army specifications. WLC was a close WLA variant made for the Canadian Army. (The third Harley Davidson's army model was XA, designed for desert use, but German army lost North Africa before there was any need to use these motorcycles and only about 1000 units were manufactured.) WLA was manufactured from 1940 to 1945.

It was powered by 23 HP side valve V-twin 45,3 ci (742 cc) engine. Top speed on low-octane fuel was about 65 mph (105 kph).
