    Boxer Harley

    Auctions America is auctioning off one of the few examples of the Harley XA in Auburn IN on Dec 8th. Not sure if this link will work, but here goes: http://www.auctionsamerica.com/event...ture=grouping=

    There are several other German motorcycles at this same auction. All items are from WW 2, from the History Museum.

    Thought you might want to know.

    These are pretty rare bikes and this one looks fairly complete & original. it will be interesting to see what it actually sells for.

    My Dad, who was a motor-pool Master Sargent in ww-ll said that, that was the best Harley, Harley ever built. He said that since we won the war, and German industry was kaput,..he was surprised H/D didn't capitalize on it , and build them for the masses?.

    As said,..I'd like to have one , but too $$ for me.

    I'm told, that near hear, there is a guy that built a replica , mating an older H/D frame with a 900 Airhead?...I've never seen it.

    Yes indeed. He saw we were on BMWs, and said you need to ride my XA. He already had it out, so he fired it up for me. What a wonderful day.
