Rare Harley DAH Factory Racer at Wheels Through Time Museum

Matt Walksler and crew pull out an ultra-rare Harley DAH factory racer and fire it up in the Wheels Through Time Museum. Check out how they start it by rolling the rear tire over with another old Harley.

The crew at Dale’s Wheels Through Time Museum often fire up other rare and unusual motorcycles. Worth the visit to Maggie Valely, NC.
