    What you define as a chopper is actually called a "bobber." An actual chopper is called so because it's built out of different bikes and parts chopped up to work together.

    Considering the demographic that are buying their bikes, for the most part, are simply getting older they really need to start appealing to a much younger demographic with bikes they would be interested in riding. In other words, they need to diversify their portfolio.

    A few things to help you get up tp speed. The Sportster 2.25 gallon tank originated on HD's 125cc and 165cc 2 stroke single cylinder motorcycles. HD responded to Honda's lightweight motorcycles by importing Aermacchi motorcycles from Italy and selling them as Harleys. Brando didn't create the Harley Davidson outlaw image in "The Wild One". Brando rode a Triumph in "The Wild One". The Harley K was followed by the KH a K stroked out to 54 cubic inches.

    YOU GUYS SHOULD DO AN UP TO SPEED ON THE HONDA ATC, or the 3 wheelers from the 1980's. They were the predecessors to the 4 wheeled ATV's of today, and they went through an unimaginable amount of development in there short run before they were legally banned from being produced. Some of the sport 3 wheelers from the late 1980's like the 3rd gen Honda ATC 250R, and Kawasaki Tecate can still keep up with the sport quads of today. The 1980's were an insane time for motocross racing, and people are still riding 3 wheelers today

    Harley-Davison is a dying brand. They don’t make anything that even comes close in competition with the other brands. No young kids want to buy a Harley, not can they afford one. Harley can’t seem to get the attention of the new generation of riders. Unless they make an affordable bike that can compete with 1000cc superbikes they’re done.

      safe to say harley's fanbase killed the company itself, my opinion is that harley's costumer base has caused the company to have an identity crisis, on one side there's a side of the company that are willing to put step in new grounds for the company (with the annoucement of the v twin sports bike and the electric harley in goodwood as proof) while the other side that are 'purists" and want to stick with tradition and for a long time that purist side of the company effectively put it in chains on what good ideas the company thinks and the purists just lighting it to fire.
