Harley Davidson Golf Cart - Introduced in 1963
Harley Davidson golf cart info - Most people around the world associate Harley Davidson with their iconic motorcycles which have been in production for over 100 years. What people don’t globally associate Harley Davidson with is the production of their Golf Cart! However, the Harley Davidson Golf Cart was introduced in 1963 as a three wheeled machine (which later became four-wheeled) with a 245 cc dual cycle single cylinder engine (which used oil mixed with gas) and two seats. The air cooled 245cc golf cart engine capacity sounds quite high for a vehicle you’d expect to go quite slowly, however the power was necessary for the cart to successfully make it up hills carrying two people and their golf clubs. As we all know, not all golfers are slim-line athletes so you can imagine why the golf cart engine needed to be fairly powerful.
Harley Davidson Golf Cart - Popular In Its Era
Harley Davidson golf cart info - The Harley Davidson Golf Cart production line did not run for a very long time even though initial sales and popularity of the machines were quite high. They were the fashionable golf cart in their era, but quite expensive to buy at the time. It was only in 1969 that Harley Davidson sold their Golf Cart business to the American Machine and Foundry Company, known as AMF. AMF continued to sell the Harley Davidson Golf Cart until 1982 when they sold their cart line to Columbia ParCar (a large manufacturer of electric and gas golf carts) who continued production, using an oil injection system.
Harley Davidson Golf Cart - Restoration
Harley Davidson golf cart info - Now considered a classic piece of machine history, the Harley Davidson Golf Cart is popular with enthusiasts that wish to restore them. This could be for resale or for personal use around the golf course, however whatever the reason it is a challenge in itself, due to the parts being hard to come by. If one is planning to restore a Harley Davidson Golf Cart, then it would definitely be worth finding and purchasing a model specific manual (as well as seriously considering the cost of restoration!). There are several sites dedicated to the Harley Davidson golf cart, so locating a manual should not be too difficult.
Harley Davidson Golf Cart - Find One At Auction
Harley Davidson golf cart info - Good examples of the Harley Davidson Golf Cart are not easy to find and people will pay a lot of money for them at auctions and through the internet. As most golf clubs have the capacity to provide their members with a golf cart, the need for a personal one doesn’t seem to make a great deal of sense - however, for the budding Harley Davidson enthusiast or fan with a spare bit of cash and an even sparer bit of land, the Harley Davidson Golf Cart would be an enjoyable way to transport yourself round!
