    All the Harley's are just copys of the 1915 Harley in diffrent form. The 1915 Twin with 3 speed is the father of all Harleys.

    Re: Dozen Most Significant Harleys of All Time?

    The term "modern" has been redefined several times throughout motorcycle history. To me, the bikes that played a part in redefining the term are some of the most significant. 1909 Twin, 1915 3spd, 36 Knuck, 49 Pan, 57 sporty, 58 duo, 65 electra, 1st Evo. Then theres the HD 45, which is of course one of the most significant models, given its years of service in both business and racing.

    These are some of my most significant "models".

    It would also be interesting to try to determine the 12 most significant Individual Harleys, as opposed to models. Petrali's streamliner would pop up, right? Pete Hills Knuckle? The LSR Roeder Sprint?

    Did Harley keep making bikes after 47? I have heard rumors, but never believe them!

    Cool Re: Dozen Most Significant Harleys of All Time?

    Top Dozen....or at least 11...

    1905...First production Harley....Model #1
    1909...First Twin...OK it didn't work very well so let's say 1911?
    1920 Harley Sport Model....Nobody has mentioned this model???
    1935 VLD....one of the funnest bikes to ride!
    1947 Indian Chief...OK not technically a Harley, but don't you want one?
    1947 Knucklehead....Needs an Indian chassis to be perfect.
    1965 Panhead...You know why.
    1979 FXS Lowrider.......got to have one Troublehead...I mean Shovelhead
    1990 Evo....best Harley motor built!
    2003 FLHTC...100 year ann.....OK really 99th year but who's counting?
    2008 FLHX...Wifey's Street Glide....

    Oh wait a minute most of those are MY bikes and also the top ten most significant in my book.... The best ones are the ones in your garage!

    Lots of good choices.

    One specific bike I would like to see included is the 1990 Fatboy.
