The retro event is mainly Japanese and based on the sixties. We found something French based on the forties. The Davidson 883 XWL 'Warboy' is based on an XL 883 Sportster.
And the builder is in conflict about the brand management. Because the frame has little American and putting the 'Harley-Davidson' on the tank - let alone the license plate - is therefore a capital crime. At first glance you see a perfect Harley-Davidson WL 'Liberator'. Only in the second instance do you see that not everything is what it seems.
Where the old model is equipped with a switchboard under the feet, there is now a foot and hand coupling mechanism, just like any other motor (and the WLSs from 40-45). Despite the excellent saddle, the engine is also resistant to potholes, because the suspension is preserved. The drum brakes have been replaced by double discs at the front and one at the rear. The old v-twin side valve has been replaced by the modern 900cc Evo moto.
The bike was made by Milwaukee Belle custom builders. The WLX ships without the Thompson rifle in the holster.
