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.See Walter in motion during the Fall season in Wisconsin:
