Harley-Davidson Collectible Search Assistant
Harley-Davidson is named for its founders, Bill Harley and Arthur Walter Davidson.
Not long after the invention of the gasoline engine, Bill and Arthur assembled a one-cylinder motorcycle. This was in 1903, the same year that Henry Ford started Ford Motor Company, and the year Orville and Wilbur Wright took their first airplane ride, quite a year for American transportation, I would say.
After selling the initial Harley, they produced more, and soon started their company in a wooden barn in Milwaukee WI. Expansion was quick, in 1908 they sold 154 motorcycles and have been growing ever since.
By 1918, Harley-Davidson was the biggest motorcycle factory in the world. They produced approximately 20,000 motorcycles for the U.S. government during World War I, and virtually their entire production went toward the war effort in World War II also. With contracts like that, the company easily survived the great American depressions.
Around the end of World War I, the Model T Ford started revolutionizing the american transportation industry, making for tough times. As we now know well, tough times bring out the best in tough people, and Harley-Davidson used innovation and quality to survive and prosper.
