Until the mid-90's you had to REALLY want to ride a Harley to own one. Only the "real" bikers were messing with em much.
THen the doctors and lawyers started buying them. Now they're the Buicks of the motorcycle world. Geriatric, far from their roots, and mostly plastic from China.
I'd love to have old ww2 era flatheads piled in a barn, though! Maybe a few early Duo-Glides.
