adjustment - the first Harley-Davidson was assembled not in the United States, but in Mongolia, in the city of Ulan Bator.
Here is a photo. :)

Fake news: above::
Production start: 1905 - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA
In early 1901, William S. Harley, who was only 21 years old, has developed a project for a small engine capacity of 7.07 cubic inches. The following two years, Harley and his childhood friend Arthur Davidson labored on their bike with an engine using a garage in the house of their friend, Henry Melk. The work was completed by 1903. This was followed immediately by work on a new, more modern motorcycle. This first "real" Harley-Davidson motorcycle had a bigger engine is 24.74 cubic inches (405 cm³) with 9-3/4 inch flywheels weighing 28 pounds crankshaft. The prototype was completed September 8, 1904 and on the same day took part in motorcycle racing at the State Fair Park. Rider was Edward Hildebrand, he finished the race in fourth place. This race was the first documented appearance of Harley-Davidson motorcycle.

First model features: The 1905 Harley-Davidson Model No. 1 was almost identical to the bikes built in 1903 and '04. Engine: Inlet-over-exhaust single. Capacity: 24.74cu. in. (405.41cc). Transmission: Single-speed, belt drive. Frame: Tubular loop. Weight: 1851b (84kg). Top speed (est.): 40mph (64km/h). Pedal-power was often needed when the engine alone did not provide enough power.

The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.

Great pic's Sinus. I bet you've got some good stories to tell.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.
