Harley-Davidson WL in Movies
No identification for this model? here with the luscious Pascale Petit.
But but but Alain Delon ! (And Pascale Petit, more to my taste.) ! And no identification? It was perhaps brand new at the time of the shooting (here, we must be in september 1958).

Harley-Davidson WL 45ci/750cc, as built from 1937 to 1951, judging by the tank badge this one must be from around 1948

Modèle WL moteur Flathead. C'est cette moto qui sera "militarisée" pendant la seconde guerre mondiale sous l'appellation WLA et WLC
Not a very genuine one.It has civilian WL type fuel tanks and head light, front wheel / brake drum and mud guard are not WLA. However the luggage carrier is WLA.
On pourrait penser à une Harley-Davidson WLA... Mais pas sûr...
Could be - it is whatever the cop bikes of the time were.

He refers to it as a '39
The "1942 Harley Davidson WLC 750cc SV" in my link looks to have the same logotype on the fuel tank http://www.arosmotorveteraner.se/images/1942_Harley_Davidson_WLC_750cc_SV.jpg http://www.arosmotorveteraner.se/sidor/fordonspark.asp

Side valve engine so probably a WW2 era WLA.

Harley-Davidson WL (1948-49) Postwar civilian model. http://www.walnecks.com/images/5/884_1.jpg
L'affaire d'une nuit
Is it a Harley-Davidson? Anyhow, big surprise to find it here, but it fits in the story.
47/48 Harley WL.
Looks to be an older side valve model - maybe a WLA updated?? Or maybe just a WL?
It is a Harley-Davidson but not sure of the model. The tank badge would suggest this bike is about 1948. Being side valve it is most likely a model WL or maybe a UL. I think the bike in the thumnails is an older model. I agree
The second bike in the thumbnail is not a WL but a big twin (VL/UL) because it has the chaindrive at the left side. WL have the chain at the right side.

Chrysler a fait des motos? Plus sérieusement, Harley-Davidson WLA
Part subject on the only 'arty' frame of the movie:
One on the right may be an Indian Chief Harley WL? The shape of the fenders indicate Indian Scout bikes, late 1930's Indian Not Indian, but definately harley Davidson. The first of the WL-series had fenders like these. so WLA, probably 1937.
These bikes are both the Harley-Davidson model VL, the fore-runner to the EL Knucklehead.
Le spie vengono dal semifreddo
It has springer forks so is pre 1949. Might be a WLA. The other bike looks like a Moto Guzzi but I don't think they were in production in 1966. The front fender looks like big Harley from the '60s but whatever that is between the headlight and the fender looks odd.
the left one looks like a WL to me, because it has a non military front end (fork, head light, mudguard), the right one appears to have a telescopic front fork, could be a hydra or duo glide
Harleys - WLAs? By the length & Chromiun air cleaner cover size, I'd agree. And guess from the tank emblem of behind one (under the hand-shifter), it looks '47-'50 emblem. I guess it postwar Harley-Davidson WL (1947-)
Both seen later, around 01:20:00, with a little role:
Zazie dans le métro
Au choix!!! Both are 45cu in flathead V-twin and modifyed. also seems re-farblicated...strange. Left one seems Harley Davidson WL (1937-) Right one has drab color. May be re-fablicated wartime Harley Davidson WLA (1940-)... I think the right one is more intelesting
WL are common in France in the fifties, because lots of them arrived in WW2 with american troops.
The Falcon's Adventure
..I guess it's a harley ...but No good pics of it ...All in the dark.! I brightened the pic a lot but that doesn't help. All I can really see is the front fender. It does look like a big bike. I had tried to brighten it too ..but as you said ... it didn't help.!
[Guess] Harley-Davidson WL (1941-46) We can see chrome molding on the tank side. It's Harley from 1941. And can't see any reflection on the engine, I think it's not the OHV but SV, with wartime black painted parts. (Few civilian model was provided during the war, and early postwar model was mixed many wartime black parts) picture of 1946 model http://web.bitnet.net/dalarnes/hd46.html
