Hello all,
I recently acquired Jamie's old WLA from the organization that purchased it at his estate auction several years ago. I'm seeking leg shields, windshield, tool roll and tools, and spare parts roll and contents, helmet and goggles. If anyone has any of these items for sale or can reccomend sources, please let me know.
Thanks.
Zack

Hey Zack,

You can get a nice reproduction windshields from David Sarafan or Way back Wheels.
I know they had problems with the guy from Europe that took over production of making them from the late owner of them, the canvas apron color was a yellow-green dye they used but I think they have it corrected now.

A original windshield is a impossible find, this is the next best thing.

The tool roll and parts tool are rare to find these days especially the tool rolls with tools.
Most all guys here are putting tool kits together thats how hard they are to find complete.
You can buy a reproduction tool canvas roll from Vintage MC supply out of Ohio they are dead on correct compared to my original.
Parts rolls are also a tough find but do come up on eBay some times.

The leg shields show up on eBay but have become hard to find and most times are missing some of the hardware. I have a extra set but are missing some pieces.

CONGRATULATIONS! I'm still working the bugs out of mine, but it is nice to see another one on the road.
