Too Hard, Too Heavy

Harley Davidson VSC/LC (Landsverk 210)

A Harley Davidson was fitted a armor chassis build to Danish specifications by Landsverk (Sweden) in 1932. This configuration didn't perform well. Hard to steer on-road, and almost impossible to drive off-road due to the heavy chassis. Negotiations were held with Landsverk about a lighter chassis, but without any results and the motorcycle was de-mobbed in August 1933.

I suppose it had to be tried.

It was. Or... do you mean "lighter chassis"?

I mean an armour plated motorcycle.
