One of only 300 74ci. Harley Davidson UA model produced for the US Marine Corps. This period correct and authentically restored motorcycle is perfect in every way. Every attention to detail has been taken to restore this very rare "pre Jeep" motorcycle back to the way it rolled off of the Harley Davidson assembly line back in 1940. Unlike the ten's of thousand's Harley WLA's produced for WWII, these 74ci motorcycles were only produced from 1939 to 1941 and very few survivors are known to exist. This motorcycle is another fine example coming from the David Sarafan stables and all attention to detail has been researched and applied to this ultra rare pre WWII military vehicle. An excellent machine for any military or motorcycle museum. Also a great runner for any military or 4th of July parade.
