As with the 1916 Harley Davidson sales catalogue this one was also supplied by motorcycle dealer T. H. Oates, advertising as Cycle Motor Manufacturer and Importer, of 125 Willis St, Wellington.
Not much different from earlier brochures or even the 1924 edition however Harley Davidson did produce some beautifully laid out catalogues, no doubt to capture the eye of eager motorcyclists so this one is well worth having a look at. One of the inclusions is Harleys addition of the 600cc (35 cu. in.) opposed or flat twin Sports Model WF or WJ. Built as a solo machine, unlike the V twins that were intended more for sidecar work, it didn’t seem that popular as it was only manufactured between 1919 and 1923. The concept was good, the outcome not so. Evidently American riders preferred the big V twin Models 7/9 and 10/12.
