Only scooter model ever produced by Harley-Davidson goes for auction 

Who would have guessed that motorcycle expert Harley-Davidson once produced a scooter called the Harley-Davidson Topper in the 1950s in order to compete with Honda. The company produced the scooter for only five years which production numbers that stood at around four digits, Jalopnik reported.

Now, this bygone era scooter is going up for sale at Mecum’s Las Vegas Motorcycles 2022 auction. According to the report, the scooter features a single-cylinder, flat-mounted two-stroke engine which is capable of generating a mere power output between five to nine horsepower. However, as per the auction site, it is unclear as to which of the three models of Harley-Davidson Topper is up for grabs.

The scooter may not give one the usual kick that one gets from driving a Harley-Davidson bike, but its retro look is a sure win-win for those who love a piece of automotive history. Its fibreglass and stamped-steel construction give the scooter a vibe of the1960s.
