Harley Davidson is a famous brand of motorcycles, and it all started back in 1901 when a young man by the
name of William Harley crafted a blueprint of an engine that would fit onto a bicycle.


In 1903 the very first Harley Davidson motorcycles were made available to the public when William Harley
and his friend Arthur Davidson produced one built as a racing motorcycle. It was purchased by one of their
childhood school friends, Henry Meyer. During this time, the Harley Davidson production plant was nothing
more than a crude wooden shed with the words “Harley Davidson Motor Company” scratched across the
front door.


1905 was an important year for Harley Davidson, as they hired their first full time employee and one of their
motorcycles won a race in Chicago, putting them on the map in a sense. Years and years go by, and the
1950’s find Harley Davidson’s winning races, being featured on magazine covers with Elvis Presley, and
becoming a household name among race and motorcycle enthusiasts everywhere.


In 1983 the Harley Owners Group was formed, and was referred to as H.O.G. It became the largest
motorcycle club in the world to be sponsored by a factory. In a mere six years, the club had grown to include
more than 90,000 members. In 1987, Harley Davidson became listed on the New York Stick Exchange, and
owners everywhere realized what a wise investment they had made!


More years pass, with Harley Davidson inventing new motorcycles on a regular basis, winning more races,
and selling more motorcycles than any other manufacturer. In 2006, Harley Davidson appointed the first
authorized dealer of their motorcycles in China.


Today, Harley Davidson produces a wide variety of motorcycles that come in all different styles, shapes and
