The Harley Davidson Company (HD) was started a little over 100 years ago. In 1903 two friends began the company in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The name was formed from both of their names. They took the “H” from William S. Harley and the “D” from Arthur Davidson.

William and Arthur began work on the prototype of thier motorcycle. They eventually added the expertise of Arthur's brothers: Walter (a skilled mechanic) and William (an experienced toolmaker). All four men formed the HD Company, which was later incorporated.

In 1903 Harley Davidson made 3 motorcycles, but each one was bought and paid for before completion. These first HD motorcycles went for $200.00. The motorcycles were gray and people who rode them were called the "Silent Gray Fellows."

By the final months of 1905 HD began to add on to their product line by selling motorcycle motors, marine motors, reversible propellers and float feed carburetors.

The popularity of the Harley Davidson motorcycle grew through out the following decade. By the year 1914 The Harley's were used by 9 departments of the U.S. federal government. The U.S. Postal service itself used more than 4,800 Harley Davidson motorcycles for rural mail delivery.

The U.S. military began to use Harley Davidson motorcycles when taking care of border skirmishes with Pancho Villa in 1916. These motorcycles, however, were equipped with machine guns. HD motorcycles were also used in World War I. It was about this time that the Harley Davidson Company first realized the need to set up a service school for the motorcycles.

 

In the 1920's WWI ended. Motorcycle racing had started to become very popular. Harley made quite an impression in these times.

In the 1930's Harley Davidson, along with the rest of the country, suffered from the Great Depression

By the 1940's we were engaging in World War II. Harley Davidson was contracted to make military motorcycles once again.

In the 1950's there were new and more aggressive marketing strategies used to help the company expand. The Korean War was also raging, but by this time the military Jeep had taken the place of the military motorcycle. The Harley Davidson Company could now focus its attention on the civilian market.

The 1960's brought about changes for Harley Davidson. The company had begun to expand into producing 3-wheeled golf carts. They actually had a third of the U.S. golf cart market cornered by the end of that decade. The company expanded even further into sizable line of motorcycle accessories.

In the 1970's Harley Davidson had made advancements in the racing bike division of the company and enjoyed recurring success in the racing arena. In later years of the 1970's Harley Davidson introduced its own brand of snowmobile.

In the 1980's Harley Davidson returned to private ownership. The company renewed its interest in building better machines. They even went on to win a contact with the California Highway Patrol (CHIPS)in 1984, 1985, 1987, 1988 and 1989.

The most customized factory motorcycle was introduced by Harley Davidson in the 1990's. Harley made the FLSTF Fat Boy. This bike was remindful of the past but was still current with the standards of the day.

Harley Davidson still remains strong today. Their current line of bikes includes the Sportster, the Dyna, the Softail, the VRSC and a Touring line. Each line of bikes has several different models to choose from. The price of the Harley Davidson line can run anywhere from $6,000 and $25,000.

The Harley Davidson was at one time thought of as a gang motorcycle. Today when you see bikers on the road they are most likely doctors and lawyers. People from all walks of life still look to Harley Davidson for the class and quality they want in a motorcycle.
