Harley-Davidson Forecar “Walter” Video

The Edge Ltd.’s Producer James Cutting – the man who brought us “Hogslayer: The Unapproachable Legend,” a documentary of the dual-engine Norton dragster – is hard at work on his next project.

But this documentary’s subject is far different than a Norton dragster. His newest project – “The Missing Link: Discovery of a Centennial Motorcycle,” documents “Walter,” the last-known Harley-Davidson Forecar in existence.

This 1913 Harley-Davidson 9G Forecar was on location this past October at Old World Wisconsin – an outdoor museum in Eagle, Wis., managed by the Wisconsin Historical Society.

The Forecar’s current owner Mike Schuster didn’t just trailer the bike there for a photo shoot; he also rode it. Under clear skies in Wisconsin, the Forecar also was followed by the camera crew as it visited a property in Lake Geneva and the original Schuster garage in Goldendale.

“This shoot, a result of months of preparation, ultimately captured the first moving images of a Harley-Davidson Forecar known to exist. Few alive today have ever seen one of these rare machines in motion,” The Edge Ltd. reports.

As Cutting continues his work, he seeks additional experts in the turn of the 20th Century commercial use of motorcycles and era motorcycle production to enhance the documentary. To contact Cutting, email him edgeltd@charter.net.

Attached above is some highlights of the recent Harley-Davidson Forecar shoot, along with some stills below. For additional information, check out Facebook page for “The Missing Link: Discovery of a Centennial Motorcycle.”
