Bob Steig has owned this 1934 Harley-Davidson VLD, named Annie, since 1938.
They took the bike on rides around the Wisconsin countryside regardless of the season, the kids often getting sidecar rides in the snow.
The original dice shift knob was a $1.50 accessory extra in 1934.

The cover of Harley-Davidson’s inhouse magazine, The Enthusiast, announced the new-for-1934 VLD.
