The brand Harley-Davidson® is a household name these days, even if you don’t ride a motorcycle…


Besides being probably the most iconic bike producer in the world, it evokes a lot of imagery including freedom, independence and for the Harley-Davidson® motorcycle lover…passion!



Founded out of a small shed in 1903 by William S. Harley and brothers Arthur and Walter Davidson in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the Motor Company first produced traditional cruiser motorcycles utilizing air-cooled V-Twin engines. Below, one of the first ever Harley-Davidson® motorcycles…


When Harley and Davidson produced and sold their first bike in 1903, they were one of many small motorcycle marques springing up across the country. Flash forward more than a century and the brand is deeply rooted in North-American bike culture and after 115 years there is a lot to celebrate.

Since 2008, Clare’s Harley Davidson of Niagara has been the local hub that carries on the tradition of the brand, providing the latest Harley-Davidson® motorcycles , accessories and service and has lots going on in celebration of this milestone anniversary.


Coming up Thursday May 31st from 10 am-4 pm, everyone is invited to their 115th Anniversary Open House at their 590 York Rd. Niagara-on-the-Lake location.  It’s a chance to check out their incredible facility and score great deals on select merchandise, apparel and parts as the bike season kicks into high gear (offer not valid on motorcycles).
