Harley Davidson Sportster History - The Sportster is a line of motorcycles produced continuously since 1957

Harley Davidson Sportster History
Harley Davidson Sportster History

In 1957, the Harley Davidson Motor Company introduced the first Sportster model that were commonly named "Sporty". These early models were powered by a V Twin motor which was replaced with the Evolution engine in 1986. The Evolution motor came in 883cc and 1200cc hence the marker for the 2012 Harley Davidson Sportster Iron 883.

The perfect gifts for any bikers who ride a Harley Davidson motorcycle are these Real Men Ride American t-shirts and keychains. The shirts are available in many colors and styles for men, women, and child. You can even get one of these designs on a dog shirt! How cool is that?

      I only need one car, but I could easily have several different bikes. I ride a parallel twin BMW F800R. Harley will be my next addition.

      @HarleyDude: I'm thinking of getting one too. The only draw back I can see is that it's really only suited for one, but I would like to take my girl out once in a while. I guess I could get the rally seat, but I think it would look funny. By the way, just made my first lens from our blog, could use some comments. Thanks
