The Early "HARLEYDAVIDSON" MOTORCYCLES 1905 and Now up to 2008

rcycles and particularly the Harley-Davidson have always interested me. ough I have never owned one, it was something that was always on my mind. e been collecting pictures of old cars, trucks and motorcycles for some time and my collection of Harley-Davidson res became such that I thought I would share them. This collection has grown considerably since I started this web in 2006. I even decided to include some of the newer bikes and now have Harley's up to 2008. please forgive me but I have included some nice old English bikes. of these images have come from news groups but like with my car pages, I invite any of my visitors to submit the ite Harley-Davidson picture or a British bike. All I ask is that they give me their name and if possible where they l t address are not required. If you like, a brief story on the bike would be nice. mail address is johnmacdonald@summerville-novascotia.com

The History of the Harley-Davidson "The First Seventy Years"

The 1903 Harley-Davidson Factory

History could go a long way. Let your Harley last with only the genuine Harley Davidson parts!

The Harley-Davidson Motorcycle was born in Milwaukee Wisconsin in 1903. At that time Bill Harley and Arthur Walter Davidson built a one-cylinder motorcycle for their own use.This motorcycle was well built and they ended up selling it. That put them in thebusiness manufacturing motorcycles. They continued to build motorcycles and by 1908 they had built 154. Around this time William Davidson joined the company and it wasn't long before they had 20 employees and a new factory. In 1909 Bill Harley thought that they needed a new engine. he took on the project to built a V Twin engine.It turned out to be a 1000 cubic centimeter, 45 degree V twin engine producing seven horse power. This 45 degree V twin became one of the most recognizable symbols of the Harley-Davidson. The bar and shield logo came in 1910 and is still with them today. The F Head engine was introduced in 1911 and was the main power plant until 1929 when it was replaced by the flat head engine. By 1912 Harley-Davidson was ready to expand again into a new 6 story plant. They also started exporting at this time. From 1914 to the 1920's there was much advancement, such as the addition of a sidecar, the three-speed sliding-gear transmission, and the change in styling, which looked more like the motorcycles of today. In 1928 the first twin-cam engine and front wheel brakes were available. This enabled the motorcycle to reach speeds of more then 85 mph. The 1930's saw Harley-Davidson break more speed records. In 1932 the three-wheel Servi-Car was introduced which would become a common police and commercial vehicle. In 1936 the Knucklehead was launched and the Panhead followed in 1947. This machine made the Harley-Davidson American's motorcycle of choice. During World War II the Harley took an active roll. Civilian production was just about suspended and all efforts were concentrated on war production. Once the war was over in 1945 civilian production commenced again. In 1949 the Hydra-Glide was introduced using hydraulic front forks. The 1950's were not a good time at Harley-Davidson. The British with their Triumph and BSA motorcycles had 40% of the market. These were smaller, lighter and in some cases faster bikes. This problem was met head on and in 1957 with the introduction of the Sportster. The English stayed on the scene until the Japanese bikes hit the market in the early 60's. They were small, under powered but cute and did a lot to bring motorcycle to the attention of the general public.

However they didn't stay small and cute very long. Companies like Honda, Kawasaki and Suzuki learned real fast and made some real fast motorcycles. Harley was almost put under at this time but they fought back. In 1969 Harley Davidson merged with American Machine and Foundry Company. This merger gave them needed cash but produced some poorly built bikes and Harley&American Machine and Foundry Company's reputation suffered greatly. Harley-Davidson did survive and in 1971 the ldquo; Cruiser” was born. It was a sporty looking bike with the frame and power train of the FL series. This motorcycle was a great success and enabled Harley-Davidson to move to a 400,000 square foot plant in York, Pennsylvania. The 1970's saw Harley win a great many races including four consecutive years of winning the AMA Grand National Championships in dirt track racing. I will leave the history of the Harley-Davidson at this point with saying that from here on HarleyDavidson never looked back. There are many other good web sites that will take you beyond the 1970's

Post WW II Harley-Davidson's
A History of the Panhead by Greg Lew (Panhead Greg)
1948 was the first year for the " tin top" overhead valve version of the bike. These were offered in both 61 CI and 74 CI models. Flathead side valve motors were still very popular during the 40's, The displacement of the flatties ranged from 45", 74" to 80" but heat and oiling issues favored the OHV design. Typically, police departments would order the E type motors, or 61Ci This was both utilitarian and less expensive, but the 61s had a smaller lift cam that allowed the bikes easier starting in hotter conditions. Stop and Go stuff... Now, 1948 was an unusual year, because it was also the last year for the Spring Fork front end, but first year PANHEAD!! Over zealous engineers at the factory were always a little ahead with design, This was evident in 1965, when a frame change, electrical change, and design change pre-dated the shovel head intro in '66. And historically, you can see that the production guys were busy selling in stock, manufactured inventory. David Monahan, Harley expert and noted restorer owns a 1949 Spring Fork Panhead. Sometimes the right hand doesn't want to know what the left hand is doing...Especially when there are paychecks involved. In 49, the Hydra-Glide was introduced which, by definition, was the first hydraulic suspension bike produced by the factory. Similarly, the Duo-Glide trademark was introduced in 1958 and had BOTH front and rear suspension.

The Electra-Glide surfaced in 1965, 12 volt system and frame change were introduced. Unfortunately, the Shovelhead design was only still on the drawing board. Or, as I might guess, they simply wanted to use up the existing inventory of Panhead motors sitting around.

1960 Harley-Davidson Sportster This 1960 Harley is owned by Brad from Santa Cruz, Californ Brad had the following to say about his newly aquired Harley. "I just bought a bike that was in garage storage since 1981! I w researching the year/model etc and found your site on Yahoo im It's 1960 with 74 FLH stroked to 80. Found in a rural area of c california today, I bought it for $1,000. Today is the first day th bike has seen sunshine in 25 years! The guy I bought it from, bought it in 1976 for $1800.00 He rod for 4 years, rebuilt the engine and 500 miles later- the tranny w out. Not being able to afford to fix it, he put it aside "temporar and that is how it came to be stored for 25 years. He used to ride it in the late 70s to early 80's down to Los Angeles and back "regularly". About a 450 mile ride each direction. It kicks over easily too. The only thing I can find missing (side are out of sight of picture) is the head light). I used to marvel over stories, urban legends really, like Elvis' m harley and magazine articles on barn finds or basket case stori if it didn't happen to me today, I'd never think that it could eve They're out there!

This y first bike building experience so I needed some help but good, sounds great and is a lot of fun to ride. She sure ot of attention. I still have some things I want to do to it I will never be finished completely, you know how it is, always something to fix or change, but it is fun to ride. I most 400 miles on it this summer."

Carl Roberts' Chopper

This is what Carl had to say about his Harley

I built this bike from scratch in ’99 starting with a 60&rsqu broken frame that I was lucky to find. I had been holding on to the and transmission ( casting date 2 / 63 ) for some time waiting for th parts to come to me. I drew a pencil sketch of what I wanted to en with, basically a chopper that I owned in the 70’s and sold reason I can’t remember anymore. This is the ‘new improved’ version. I'm the white headed guy on the right.

And who can remember these races? Gets the blood flowing just looking at it.

Scrambles

DATE: August 1966 CLUB: Keystone M.C. of Emmaus, PA TRACK: TT Scrambles EVENT: 250cc Expert Class A pair of Harley-Davidson 250cc Sprints sporting white plates with black numerals. That said, they must be expert riders. I vaguely remember a couple guys with those green racing vests invading District Six from New York or points north back in the mid-sixties. They got around the tracks pretty well when they showed up but were basically no competition for the locals. Judging from the dust, they were back-markers at this stage of the race BUT at least they managed to find each other and race for bragging rights in the Aermacchi Camp and in the end, that was what it was all about anyway.

The rider pictured in our recent Dumbass Photo Caption Contest #2 was Randy Bynoe (#511) aboard his trusty 250cc Harley-Davidson Sprint.

Randy Bynoe (#511) was in his mid-to-late-fifties when he competed in the District Six scrambles in the late 1960s and early 1970s. His fellow competitors, promoting club members and District Six officials affectionately referred to him as “Old Time Randy”. Randy was a regular fixture on his 250cc Harley-Davidson Sprint during the first few years that I covered the scrambles scene. Surprisingly, “Old Time Randy” showed up with a newfangled Bultaco Pursang in the early-seventies and parked his old H-D Sprint. I guess he just got tired of chasing them and went with the “If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em.” philosophy.

Randy’s teammate was Cliff Hoke (#510) who competed in the Open Amateur Class aboard a Harley-Davidson Sportster. He was usually the sole Harley rider in that class. Cliff was also up in years but I never heard anyone refer to him as “Old Time Cliff”. He was simply “Old Time Randy’s” buddy. What was even more amazing than these two old-timers still competing at their age was the distance that they traveled to the races each weekend. Randy Bynoe hailed from Amityville, Long Island, New York and his buddy Cliff Hoke was from Jamaica, Long Island, New York. I can only imagine what those long rides to and from the District Six tracks in that old panel truck must have been like week in and week out. Picture and text submitted by Carl A. Hess

Falko Strunz on his 1963 Harley-Davidson Hardtail The actual discription for this Harley is: 1963 Pan Head was converted bored & stroked with a Flathead Lower end. All aluminum cases were chromed, dual chromed carburetors heli-arched on the left side-one each cylinder / lung. Tear drop gas tank; pearl-yellow."

1968 Harley Davidson Aermacchi Sprint SS 250 Memorial day 2006 Riverside, Calif. USA. They are still in business today, just in a different building & location. You should have seen the look on

dealership owners face when I took the bike there to show it off e has only 4,150 of this model were made. It had sat outside some friends and he saw that on it, his jaw dropped the ground ed for 18+ years when I got it and even had a mouse living in have all the cables custom remade by Barnett into stainless brai fler. I completely disassembled it and slowly started restoing it also managed to find the original optional accessory engine gua ce at a time. First was powdercoating the frame & swingarm. I skid plate on ebay. I have never seen another one anywhere that nge a few small things from the original stock, like making it a both of these options installed. The only pieces that were option ater (seat from a modern day Sportster) with a luggage rack it doesnt have are a windshield and fiberglass saddlebags (whic Softail) along with chroming some parts (triple tree, chain opinion looked to big for such a small bike). The only thing lef ail light & other small pieces) that were originally painted now is paint. I havent decided yet on if I want to go with the ori nstead of chroming the spokes I had them done in black oxide stock design or give it a slightly custom look that still has the lo poke nipples done in yellow zinc. The metal tank emblems were the era of the bike. I have, so far, had it entered in 8 bike shows ly supposed to be decals, but are the correct design style for the you see it, and won 6 of them without it even being painted. he headlight trim ring is from a modern day Sportster that has I must give thanks to Leslie, the owner of " Moto-Italia " in e headlight bucket ( I think it looks better than the original Petaluma, Calif. USA for all his knowledge about these bikes th rings). The tail light chrome ring is actually a speedometer managed to pick out of his head. After dozens of lengthy phone ezel and is also from a modern day Sportster (diameter was too conversations I met him in person and he is a great person to kn to pass that up). The vintage correct license plate I found at a anyone has "any" model Aermacchi - Harley and needs anythin eet , and the license plate frame to fit it (this was the hardest he is the #1 person on the planet to contact. If he doesnt have w find for the restoration project) is from a Harley dealership need he will know where to get it. His website is e 1960's, Skip Fordyce Harley Davidson in www.motomacchi.com

1947 Cushman Model 52 These pictures were submitted by Wayne Golden, Mercedes, TX He had the following to say about this scooter. "This Cushman was one that I owned when I was a kid. It was old when I got it so I would think it would have been built on the 40's. Photo was probably taken in 1952. I was born in 1939 so these are old photos.

And Now the Newer Harleys

And after over 100 years of production we end up with these future classics 2007 Harley-Davidson Sportster 1200L This bike belongs to Liz Maddox

If anyone has any thing that they would like to add to this section please use the email link below.
This 1997 Harley-Davidson Road King belongs to Jim Steffee, Red Lion, Pa. The bike is mainly stock, with the exception of an after market DFO, and a nicely done custom paint. He wanted a retro paint scheme for my classic looking bike, he chose a scheme that was used on the 1933 VL's.The painter had artist's license after the desired scheme was agreed upon, meaning the bags and side covers, I think it's an awesome job.
