ST. LOUIS, Mo. – The Captain America Liberator will cruise into Gateway Harley-Davidson through March 21.

The motorcycle, which was used during the filming of “Captain America: The First Avenger,” is one of only two surviving models used on the movie set. The custom motorcycle is on display in the dealership’s showroom, where visitors can get a picture standing next to it.

“We’re always looking to bring new, fun things to Gateway, and the Captain America Liberator seemed like the perfect opportunity,” general manager Chris Creed said. “We also plan to bring the motorcycle to off-site events, like the upcoming Comic Con show at America’s Center.”

The Captain America Liberator motorcycle is modeled after a 1942 WLA Army motorcycle, which was commonly known as a “Liberator” by American servicemen and women during World II. The modern replica is a modified Harley-Davidson Cross Bones, and includes additional parts, such as an ammunition box and leather gun scabbard for authenticity.
