Harley Davidsons
"During WWII, the Army U.S. Army asked Harley-Davidson to design a specification of a motorcycle much like the BMWs used by German forces, with shaft drive, a boxer engine, and several other features that made the BMWs exceptionally reliable and low-maintenance machines. Harley was already producing the WLA, based on its traditional 45-degree V-twin but the army specifically wanted the one feature that the WLA didn’t have: shaft drive. So the company produced the XA, whose engine and drivetrain were based on the flathead BMW R71 (1938-1941)"

Indians
"During WW II Indian made a de-tuned Sport Scout for the Allied armies called the 640, which embodied a 750cc (45ci) power plant. (Six refers to the model and 40 to the year of manufacture, e.g. a 341 is a 1941 Chief.) Indian also made many model 741's which were 30.50ci (or 500cc). These were slow but very reliable. Many survive in Britain and New Zealand."
