A WLA bobber was the original bobber motorcycle that started the entire chopper trend, starting in the 1940's.
A WLA motorcycle is a Harley Davidson military bike that was used extensively in World War II.
The military guys who came back from the war got their hands on this motorcycle and stripped it down to make it it faster and cooler looking. And since this made the bikes faster and more nimble it set a trend for other bike owners to follow.
Motorcycles are being bobbed and chopped in backyards and professional shops world wide.
The WLA bobber is perhaps the most historic of all motorcycles of this genre because it was the first to be bobbed setting the chopper trend as we see it now.
