1977 Confederate Edition HDs, only 631 built, only 23 accounted for today. There's a replica on Ebay now.

Nice article!  My uncle shipped over and restored an original ww2 he found when stationed in Germany in the 70's. He then sold it in the 90s for an obscene amount of $$$....lol

Not sure  if it was a XA or WLA

I've seen one of these and it was a long time ago. guy was doing burnouts and wheelies on it. must have been before it was a collectors item lol
When in trouble, shower down on the throttle. It either fixes the problem or ends the suspense.

I have a vague memory of seeing one in the distant past. At the time I didn't know it was a factory job, I thought it was an owner built custom.
