he mere mention of “Harley-Davidson” sparks imagination and wonder the world over. Few could argue that the Brand is recognized – and revered – across the globe for its excellence in motorcycle production. But the Company transcends mere transportation devices and creates more than motorcycles ... it produces an American legend. The origins of Harley-Davidson stretch back 110 years, when a young William S. Harley made plans to construct an engine that could be used when attached to a pedal bike. Along with his childhood friend, Arthur Davidson – and his brothers, Walter and William – plans were in motion for the construction of a bike that was built in a wood shed that had Harley-Davidson Motor Company scrawled on its door. After years of toil and tinkering with the plans and parts, work was completed on the first-ever Harley-Davidson® motorcycle. That first HarleyDavidson® motorcycle differed little from other motorcycles of the time. Not many businesses survive long enough to celebrate their 50TH anniversary, let alone their 110TH, and even fewer manage to do so on the strength of their original product. Throughout 2013, Harley-Davidson will be celebrating 110 years of building just what it set out to make: distinctly unique motorcycles. Here is the story that traces the development of both the machines and the legacy that contributed to the indefinable mystique of this living legend.
Reitwagen – Daimler This was the first internal combustion engine ever designed to use the new fuel: gasoline. This vehicle was a test bed for the engine that appeared the following year in the first “horseless carriage” in 1886. (left side view)
Hildebrand Wolfmuller (1,498 cc) This was the first vehicle to be called a motorcycle (Motorrad) and was the world’s first mass-produced motorized vehicle.
Pennington Edward J. Pennington applied for a U.S. patent for this “light vehicle provided with an explosive engine” in October 1894.
