Although the year that the first production Harley Davidson motorcycle was built is not for sure, the first production Harley Davidson sold was in 1903 and was most likely bought by Henry Meyer a close friend and school yard pall of William S. Harley and Arthur Davidson.

That same year Walter Davidson quits his job in Kansas and joins his brother Arthur and their friend William on their efforts to produce motorcycles. C.H. Lang of Chicago, Ill., opens the first Harley Davidson dealership and sells one of the first three production Harley Davidson’s that were built.
