Work and War
Almost as soon as the first model rolled off the Milwaukee production lines,
Harley-Davidsons have been involved in all kinds of work.
In 1909, Harley provided motorcycles for the fledgling Rural Mail Carriers of America, but it is their association with police forces across the United States that is most well-known. 1908 was the year when the first Harley became involved with law enforcement; since then they have gone on to be an integral part of police forces transportation worldwide.
Fire engines, delivery vans, golf carts: Milwaukee-built engines have driven them all. And if they were indispensable as civilian workhorses, as a tool for the military they were unsurpassed. The First World War was the first time a Harley had been used in a major conflict and, having established themselves as "Uncle Sam's choice", they went on to be even more invaluable during the Second World War.
Whether with a side-valve V-twin Model D for the police, a Servi-Car for deliveries or military 45-inch WLA, Harley-Davidson has always been able to come up with the goods.
