The Beauty of Speed Racer - 2003 version
how it all started
harley wr, harley wldr, harley flathead, harley racing

Bought this bike as
a basis for my racer.

Bike came from South Africa where it had been laying around in the bush for years.

Bike was originally military 1941 WL with correct motor, 16" wheels etc...

Bike was very tired and needed ALOT of work.

Ripped the 16" wheels for 18"
