Overview

Perhaps the greatest appeal of the motorcycles that Harley-Davidson manufactures is that they are not throwaway machines. With proper care and maintenance, a modern Harley can outlive its owner. Most of the Harley-Davidson motorcycles built over the past 25 years are still on the road, which means there are many, many used Harleys bought and sold every day.

This book provides a practical guide to purchasing the most common Harleys on the used-bike market: the aluminum-engine machines built since 1984, the Evolutions (Sportsters and Big Twins), Twin Cams, and liquid-cooled Revolution bikes (the V-Rod models). These are the bikes being bought and sold, and these are the motorcycles most widely used as daily riders. Harley-Davidson Buyer’s Guide provides everything a reader needs to know to purchase a sound, reliable, enjoyable Harley-Davidson Big Twin motorcycle.
