Harley Forecar 'Walter' to National Motorcycle MuseumHarley Forecar Walter on Display at National Motorcycle Museum

One of the most unique surviving Harley-Davidson models – the last known Forecar in existence called “Walter” – is currently on display at the National Motorcycle Museum in Anamosa, Iowa.

Walter, the subject of “The Missing Link: Discovery of a Centennial Motorcycle” by The Edge LTD., which also produced the documentary on the Norton Dragster “Hogslayer,” was transported to the National Motorcycle Museum after the Thanksgiving Holiday.

The 1913 Harley-Davidson 9G Forecar dons vintage Christmas regalia for the holiday season, and will remain in the lobby of the National Motorcycle Museum for many more months.

Walter’s owner Mike Schuster wants “many enthusiasts as possible to have the opportunity to see this unique motorcycle prior to its sale.”

About “The Missing Link: Discovery of a Centennial Motorcycle”:

This documentary is the true-life story of the one-hundred-year journey of this very unique 1913 Harley-Davidson 9G Motorcycle Truck (more commonly known as a Forecar). The documentary will explore Forecar history, the development of the Harley-Davidson “G” model Forecars and chronicle the history of this specific 9G Forecar affectionately known as “Walter.”

This history will include Walter’s early service in Milwaukee by a Harley-Davidson vendor, and continues through over 40 years of barn storage and another 40 plus years of meticulous restoration. The culmination of the documentary, will reveal the forthcoming sale of this ever-so-rare machine to a new caretaker.

“To my knowledge, this has never been done before in a motorcycle-related documentary… it’s the ultimate barn bike discovery story,” says the producer of the documentary James Cutting of The Edge Ltd. This 1913 Harley-Davidson 9G is the last known Harley-Davidson Forecar in existence.
