Produced for nearly 40 years, the Harley-Davidson Servicar was a three-wheeler HD produced in an attempt to further expand their target customer base during the Great Depression. One of their selected targets was automotive mechanics, so this bike was designed to allow mechanics put their tools in the rear storage box to make house calls. The Servicar also had a tow hitch, so if a customer’s car was finished, the mechanic could take both vehicles to the client’s home, then ride the trike back.
Released in 1932, the Servicar evolved nearly year over year. The three-wheeled nature and the giant storage box in back lent the Harley Davidson Servi-car to a wide variety of uses. Many police departments used them as general runabouts, or as parking enforcement vehicles. Here’s a restored example of Watsonville, CA’s police department Servi-Car.
This specific Servicar is rocking its awesome original paint, but it’s claimed to be a frame off restoration. The transmission is new, the top end has been rebuilt, and the brakes were done. The seller says all it needs is gas and oil, though it’s also going to need a battery and have the tank sealed. Still, I’m in love with the way this bike looks.
