If you are looking to lean more, the Harley-Davidson Early Model elective will provide you with the knowledge and experience necessary to become an entry-level motorcycle technician with an emphasis on the design, repair and maintenance of Harley- Davidson vehicles dating back to 1936.

Engineering, technical and service data comes directly from Harley-Davidson materials. The focus is hands-on experience as students learn to disassemble, repair and maintain early-model Harley-Davidson vehicles. Early-model motorcycles along with a large variety of component assemblies provide ample exposure to many varieties of early-model H-D products. You’ll study vintage service bulletins as well as special information packets on topics such as model changes, component design changes, adaptability of late-model parts and locating suppliers of obsolete components. The Harley-Davidson Prerequisite and Late Model electives are prerequisites for the Harley-Davidson Early Model elective.
