Local Harley-Davidson Techs, Vets Build WWII-Themed Bike

Technicians at Tallahassee’s Harley Davidson dealership, some of whom are veterans, decided to build a World War II-themed motorcycle for the Baddest Bagger competition.

The motorcycle looks incredibly bad-ass and resembles vehicles we see in classic WWII movies, like “Saving Private Ryan”. The shades of green and black accents give the bike a genuine WWII look.

“There’s a lot of custom fabrication on it, everything from some of the sidecar mounts to the machine gun,” Jeremy Taylor, a U.S. Army veteran and local Harley-Davidson technician said for Tallahassee Democrat. Jeremy was one of the lead builders.

The 82-horse-power, 105-foot-pounds-torque luxury cruiser will sell for about $45,000, the dealership’s service manager Ted Vaccari said. Part of the proceeds will go toward the Charity Honor Flight, a nonprofit that facilitates a trip for veterans to connect and gather in Washington, D.C.
