Since the very early 1900’s, people have been strapping motor’s on bicycles and trying to improve one upon another on the Bigger Faster Better Bike! In 1902 Triumph Cycle, Co.Ltd. Of England, began their Motorcycle Company. In 1903, The Harley-Davidson Motor Company was founded by William S. Harley and Arthur Davidson. These guys now set many industry standards. Folks liked motorcycles in the early 1900’s due to its low cost, making a vehicle affordable. It was cheaper to drive a motorcycle, rather than to drive a car. Competition kicked in and before too long, you could buy a Ford Model T to fit the whole family. Around the 1950’s American and British companies were in control of the market, but you had to be a good “Wrench” or mechanically inclined to be able to operate one. At the end of the 1950’s the Japanese broke out with an advancement to motor bikes that was incredible: The Electric Start System. Ahhh, the love began to spread! No more Kick start and multiple repairs. These Japanese bikes were nice. Motorcycles continued to get better and faster but were not greatly recognized until Honda broke out with a big surprise. They came out with the CD450. Nothing like folks had seen before! Not only was it very affordable, but it could outrun a stock Harley-Davidson with more the two time the engine site, and it didn’t tend to break down like the Harley’s did then. Now, it was not just affordability that made motorcycles come ALIVE, but love, Pure LOVE! Companies competed, as they continue to, to improve on varied features for the Motorcycle lovers of all countries. Enjoy your summer Cycle lovers!
