1973 Harley Davidson Golf Cart

Screen Shot 2016-04-26 at 5.22.35 PMMy business partner in Arizona bleeds black and orange, he wouldn’t be caught dead on any motorcycle that didn’t come from “The Motor Company”.  Well, that’s not entirely true but pretty damn close. In all the years I’ve known Les if he’s not in an Aloha shirt  (at his pool party) he’s is wearing a Harley T-Shirt…no kidding. Les now lives and runs the Arizona arm of our company…in a gated community where everybody drives golf carts to get around. Today I found exactly what he needs…a Harley Davidson Golf Cart.

I’ve written before about how Harley has done just about everything under the sun in the motorcycle business. From buying up Italian motorcycle companies, to trying Cafe Racers, racing little 100cc two stokes in Baja, getting engines from Porsche, you name it. But Golf Carts? Well, when two wheels aren’t enough for you anymore it’s time for the coolest golf cart you can get. A Harley.Screen Shot 2016-04-26 at 5.37.00 PM

There is feeling of irony here. The Golf cart is a single cylinder 245cc gas engine three wheeler. It was designed by ‘Willie G’ when he first joined the family business. It later became a four wheeler, but the three wheeler has a cool factor  that the later version can’t match. Now here is  where I get a chuckle, there truly is only one Harley Davidson I would like to own, the XLCR…designed by Willie G. From Golf carts to cafe racers Willie G is probably the most ‘Outlaw’ of Outlaws at Harley.

I found a pretty nice 1973 Harley Cart on ebay today, it runs good, looks good and comes with a spare motor, wheels and some extra parts…not bad for a pretty resonable price. Think about it, when you can’t ride your Road King anymore you can still ride a Harley around your Senior Citizen community and be the envy of all your golf buddies. Not to mention the ladies!
