As one of few American motorcycle manufacturers to survive the Great depression, Harley Davidson have become one of the leading motorcycle manufacturers worldwide and are firmly attached to a strong client following. Known for their chopper style posture they were typically formed of heavy weight frames and air-cooled engines exceeding a displacement of 700cm. The last of its kind, the Harley Davidson American Highway Patrol motorcycle was retired in 1998 to be replaced by the newer fleet of BMWs. Harley Davidson FLHP base models were already well equipped and were a popular option for federations such as the American police force. It was easy for adaptation such as sirens, radio sets and other modifications which were included to complete the AHP specification motorcycle.
The example you see here is an original Harley Davidson Police motorcycle which was purchased directly from the Texas Sheriff’s department in 1998, supported by the relevant documentation. As befitting, the bike was supplied with the obligatory sirens and blue lights however when sold to its second owner, the blue light lenses had to be removed and replaced with amber items.
The Harley rides very well, and shows just 18,000 miles recorded, supported with various bills and official Police manuals. If you ever wanted to play out your CHIPS fantasy, this is without double the bike to do it on!
