You are purchasing one new USA Made wiring harness kit for 1942-1945 Harley-Davidson military WLA models built under the 1942 master contract.  This is our "premium" kit.  It has correct tinned copper fold-over flag terminals as well as correct twisted and sweated open wire ends on the headlamp terminals and stop lamp switch terminals.  This kit also includes a correctly reproduced coil to frame and engine ground strap, an NOS shielded timer to coil wire, complete tail lamp and brake lamp wires with connectors.  Does not include the wiring for the 1944 black out relay.  We do sell that as a kit on another listing in our store.


Each harness is made one at a time by hand in our shop in Cimarron, New Mexico.  This harness is perfect for a concours restoration. 


The following harness sub-assemblies are woven in cotton loom material, as original:  dash to fork, dash to coil/battery, dash to generator/relay, stop lamp switch, tail lamp.  Coil wire is genuine WWII NOS surplus in perfect condition.


Our research via NOS wiring samples as well as a large library of photos shot at the HD factory museum shows that solid color (non-traced) wire insulation was used predominately prior to the end of WW-II.  If you disagree and would prefer a harness with all traced wires, you may custom order one.


Wires are single traced or non-traced as original, and tail lamp wires are the correct red and black non-traced wires.  Wire colors are accurate as are the wire terminal ends.  Handlebar dimmer and horn wires have ends already tinned, you will fish the wires through the bar from the bottom.  You will find it easier without your timer cable installed.  You will have to solder the bar wires into your dimmer and horn switches.  Other than the tail lamp and fender lamp contact button terminals, this will require no more soldering.  We do happen to sell complete wire clip kits for OHV and side valve models in our store.

Please check our store for more WLA and WLC military parts.


We do sell a less-detailed kit for about $50 less and we do sell a kit complete with pre-wired switches.
