Classic American Motorcycles

In 1904, the first Harley-Davidson motorcycle placed fourth in a race at Milwaukee, Wisconsin’s State Fair Park. Approximately 15 years later, Harley-Davidson was the world’s largest motorcycle manufacturer. While Harley-Davidson’s sales plummeted during the Great Depression, the company rebounded during World War II when it supplied nearly 100,000 motorcycles to the United States and her allies. After another period of slow sales during the 1970s, Harley-Davidson worked to improve the quality of its motorcycles. Introducing a new model called the Fat Boy, the company rebuilt its customer base, and by the 1990s Harley-Davidson was once again the world’s leading manufacturer of heavyweight bikes.
