Harley-Davidson just revealed the most important new motorcycle in its history — and it isn't electric

Harley-Davidson just revealed the most important new motorcycle in its history — and it isn't electric Harley-Davidson announced that it's partnering with a Chinese manufacturer to build a small-displacement motorcycle for the Asian market. The bike, at 338cc, would be much smaller than Harley's smallest US product. Harley CEO Matt Levatich has set a goal for international sales to make up half of the company's total. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Harley-Davidson, the iconic American motorcycle manufacturer, has been generating buzz the past few years with its LiveWire electric bike, slated to launch later in 2019.

This “ motorcycle ” started as a pile of scrap steel, some bearings, an industrial engine, a set of car wheels, and a bike seat. There comes a sense of pride unlike any other when you manage to build something awesome from scratch in your garage .

There comes a sense of pride unlike any other when you manage to build something awesome from scratch in your garage. This “motorcycle” started as a pile of scrap steel, some bearings, an industrial engine, a set of car wheels, and a bike seat. Using some craftiness and ingenuity, this Doctor DS guy managed to become a motorcycle manufacturer, using nothing but a pile of largely useless scrap.

Sure, there are a number of things that could be described as “wrong” on this motorcycle. For example, the brake rotors and rear sprocket cannot be changed as they’re welded to the axle shafts. Some of the welds are lackluster. The chain is just hanging out, looking to eat some pant legs. The rear brake hydraulic hose looks like it could get caught on any random car mirror as you pass. And oh my word that exhaust pipe is something else.

Build A Motorcycle From The Scraps Laying Around Your Garage . It’s a place where few motorcycle journalists live. We have a lot of flat road between here and almost everywhere else in the country.

In other words, it’s sketchy as hell, and I love it.

With some proper motorcycle wheels, some kind of chain guard, and routing the throttle and brake along the frame where they should be, and this little homemade two-wheeler might actually be pretty good to ride around for a while. The motor mounted on the frame is apparently a 208cc job, which should be more than enough power to move a human down the road at a reasonable clip. Comparable 208cc engines generally provide around 5.5 to 6 horsepower.

The best part of this video is the almost complete lack of spoken word. Instead of a “HEY GUYS, DON’T FORGET TO LIKE AND SUBSCRIBE” you just hear a bit of bed music and all of the grinding, filing, drilling, and welding you care to. It’s actually quite instructional, and has already filled my head with horribly bad ideas.

Check it out, it’s kind of a neat bike!

1963 Chevy Bel Air Squeezed To Fit Inside Modern Garage.
A 17.5-foot classic barely fits inside this garage, but it fits! Garage space can be an issue when owning long cars or pickup trucks, especially when it plays home to large toolboxes and other storage items. Speaking of lengthy cars, the 1963 Chevrolet Bel Air is a ridiculously long car that measures at a whopping 17.5-feet in length, and it sits on a 119-inch wheelbase. The ’63 Bel Air model is almost a full foot longer (11 inches) than the 1957 model.
