Designed for cruising on highways, Harley-Davidson motorbikes are heavyweight, with engines greater than 700 cc. They are gave rise to the tradition of heavy modification and customization - the birth of the chopper style of motorcycle characterized by stretched frames, hardtail frames, larger than stock front wheels, long front ends with extended forks often coupled with an increased rake angle.
