The main reason I feature this bike is because you rarely see a full custom Harley WLA, and even less one BMX theme inspired. This one was born in 1942 and was rebuilt by a you shop located in Bern, Switzerland, always ranked among the world’s top ten cities for the best quality of life, and where all population speaks both German and French and seems now to embrace the vintage Harley culture.
The bike called D’MX kept its original 750 Flathead engine (heads are cut and re-shaped) using a DelOrto carburetor, is hand shifted via a 3-speed Servi Car transmission, kept its factory frame without any stretch or rake modification and 1942 Springer front end. Front brake has been forgotten on purpose, rear brake being original but with a modified drum. The WLA now runs on a pair of size 21″ 1989 Harley wheels dressed with BMW tires. Notice the very interesting hand hammered gas tank and the oil tank concealing a 6 Volts battery. Handlebars and pegs are original BMX modified parts. Builder Danny Schneider wants to be excused for keeping stock pipes, but as he states, it’s because he rides this bike and these Fucxxxg Swiss laws. Hard Nine Choppers. (photography HRF)
