Historical Description[]

Motorcycles were a common sight in the battle fields of World War II. During the pre-war period alone the demand for motorcycles skyrocketed, this included motorcycles for military use, and BSA alone supplied 126,000 BSA M20 motorcycles to the British armed forces, starting in 1937 and continuing until 1950. Royal Enfield also produced motorcycles for the military, including a 125 cc lightweight motorcycle that could be dropped (in a parachute-fitted tube cage) from an aircraft.

In 1940, Harley-Davidson re-engineered an existing civilian motorcycle, the WL model, into a battlefield-ready vehicle, the Harley-Davidson WLA. Modifications included mud-dispersing fenders, heavy-duty carrying racks for ammunition boxes, and a front scabbard large enough to hold a Thompson submachine gun.
