Harley-Davidson Racing Motorcycle

Classic Motorcycle Consignments is THE place to go for all those in search of old-school glory, and this ‘1946 Harley-Davidson WR Racer is just one of the bikes we will show you form now on.

It’s a WR model, a rare find that has recently changed hands. It’s in full race trim, with a big carb, suicide clutch and heavy-duty Wico magneto. Originally raced by a privateer in the Pacific Northwest, it was retired in the 1960s when the new Harley KHK made its presence felt. The WR was stored in the back of a garage, its iron-barreled 738cc engine thoroughly worn out.

This fine piece of racing history is running the vintage motorcycle circuit in Australia—and once again, the Indians are chasing.
