Willy G brought his 4-wheeler instead of his 2-wheeler.

Willy G. Davidson’s custom Mercury was one of the eye-popping cars at the 2014 Milwaukee World of Wheels show Feb. 21-23 at State Fair Park. Though it wasn’t on a raised and mirrored platform like the Ridler Award and Legend Cup competitors, the tail-dragging, fender-skirted burgundy Merc was a winner in everyone’s book. It was as cool as a full dresser Fat Boy.

The Milwaukee World of Wheels also advertised a Motorcycle Show featuring “motorcycles from across the nation.” In reality, about half of the bikes on display were antique bikes owned by the Milwaukee-based Badger Heritage Chapter of the Antique Motorcycle Club of America. That is a good thing!

Within the AMCA, Badger Heritage members are well-known for dressing up in old-fashioned motorcycle garb and for owning some of the coolest bikes in the club. After all, Wisconsin has a long heritage of leadership in the biking industry with names like Harley, Buell and S & S hailing from the Badger State.
