Harley Davidson Parts in a Box
Mystery Wood Box with OEM Harley Davidson Logo
Message: I have this old crate. It is stamped on each end H.D.M.C. it weighs about 125lbs empty. I'm just curious if any one knows how old it is and what was shipped in it. I'm thinking bout restoring it and turning it into a table. Its a sweet piece.

I think it was used for a delivery box.

Hi, I work in Advertising, but I am a antique Harley Fan. This box is most likely a Dealer made display.
The Hangers world hold it up vertical in a shop window, most likely to the right- having the logo displaying left. The
buttons on the bottom, were for lights. Back then it would have been a shadow box design- So the lid would have been carved
out to display a image or message. That is a really a cool find.
I’m thinking that the two connectors on the box are old pushbutton type switches. The springs coming out the
front of the one and the two wire connections on the back support that theory. What they were used for is anyone’s
guess. Good luck trying to unravel the mystery!!

It appears to be a WWII, contract parts crate for overseas shipping. Those hooks look familiar.
What do you think this Harley-Davidson Mystery Box is?

Here's a photo shot of the connector of some sort inside the Harley Parts Box. Now, what in the heck was this connector hooked up to, and for what purpose?
