47 Years of Sportster: A Picture Gallery

By Walter F. Kern

Pictures of Harley-Davidson Sportster Motorcycles

In 1957, Harley-Davidson introduced the Sportster. It has continued in production ever since. We present here a look at Harley-Davidson Sportster models from the first model in 1957 to the present as provided in pictures submitted by visitors to the site.

A gallery called "47 Years of Sportster" is provided that gives a picture and description for each model year from 1957 to 2003.Harley-Davidson Sportster motorcycle picture

One of the biggest features on the Motorcycle Views site is Moto Pics, where visitors to the site can display and describe their motorcycles. All future entries to the Sportster Gallery will come from pictures from Moto Pics. The gallery has been populated with pictures from the previous Sportster gallery on the old site.

We Need Your Help

There are still many years in the Sportster gallery without a picture. That's where you come in. We want you to help us complete this Sportster gallery by submitting a picture and description of your own Sportster -- the older the better. These pictures will also become part of Moto Pics. There will only be one picture for each year placed in the "47 Years of Sportster" gallery. Since I am continually reviewing the best picture for each year, new submissions for a year already listed may bump the current picture.

Note that the gallery is being expanded to bring the Sportster models to the current year. The name of the gallery will remain the same.
