  • Unfortunately, all Harley Davidson did was purchase a smaller business that was already making them and put some sticker kits on them.
    Check out Stacyc bikes. My daughter has been riding hers for a year.

    David O'Dowd says:
  • A balance bike is by definition UNPOWERED. This a MOTORCYCLE “by definition”.
