Harley-Davidson WR Racer Restoration / Bill Brownell

Harley-Davidson WR Racer Restoration / Bill Brownell

This 1946 Harley-Davidson WR is 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. Around two decades later, the Harley was wheeled out into the sunlight again. The frame, lighter and stronger than any W-series road bike, was restored by Bill Brownell, who rode Indians and sold Triumphs in San Bernardino County, California — via Bike EXIF
