1962 Harley-Davidson Topper with Sidecar

In 3 Wheels, America, Scooter by AbhiLeave a Comment

In its long history, Harley-Davidson has only created one scooter. As you might guess, it was not a commercial success. Harley offered to rare factory options that could be mounted on the side – either a utility box or an adorable sidecar – here’s one with the latter.

The Topper featured an 165 cc air-cooled 2-stroke engine, and because it was built for casual riders it was paired with a CVT that would not allow the rider to head away from a stop if the engine was spinning higher than 1,800 rpm. Braking was taken care of by 5-inch drums front and rear. But this example stands out due to the sidecar. For more on the sidecar and utility box (plus some period advertisements), check out this page from the Harley Topper Club.

The seller of this example says that it’s in great condition with new whitewall tires and it “runs excellent.” Find this Topper for sale in Huntington Station, New York for $10,500 here on Facebook Marketplace.
