Missing Link

Documentary On Location 

SLINGER, WIS. (November 16, 2014) – “Walter,” the last known Harley-Davidson Forecar in existence, was shot on location in period settings with current owner Mike Schuster in mount at the beautiful Old World Wisconsin this October.  Old World Wisconsin is an outdoor museum

in Eagle, Wisconsin managed by the Wisconsin Historical Society.  There was additional shooting at a property in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, as well as at the original Schuster garage in Goldendale, Wisconsin.

This shoot, a result of months of preparation, ultimately captured the first moving images of a Harley-Davidson Forecar known to exist.  Few alive today have ever seen one of these rare machines in motion.  (See the link below of Walter in motion and photos attached as well.)  This completes yet another shoot of Walter and the first of Walter in action for The Missing Link documentary.  The Edge Ltd. is currently searching for additional experts in the turn of the twentieth century commercial use of motorcycles and era motorcycle production to enhance the documentary.   Walter in motion: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GJd64SLhi7g&feature=youtu.be

The Missing Link: Discovery of a Centennial Motorcycle 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 affectionally known as “Walter.”  This history will include the machine’s early service in Milwaukee by a Harley-Davidson vendor, and continues through 40 years of barn storage and another 40 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,” comments independent producer James Cutting of The Edge Ltd.  This 1913 Harley-Davidson 9G is the last known Harley-Davidson Forecar in existence.
