The Life, Death, And Rebirth of a 1944 Harley-Davidson UL — From The Archives

  • By cannonball

This is the story of a restoration. But not just any restoration. It’s more the story of a resurrection, the rebirth of a motorcycle that died a violent, ugly death nearly half a century ago and had been reclining comfortably in the afterlife ever since.
The 1944 civilian-model Harley-Davidson UL had been in a horrendous wreck near Gilroy, California, in 1951, then exiled to the owner’s backyard to lay beneath the sun and stars … and in the rain, sleet, snow, fog and dew. It was as though the bike were the culprit of the crash rather than the victim.
