On July 20, 1931, the Harley-Davidson Board of Directors decided to begin development of a three-wheeled commercial vehicle. A year later, that vehicle debuted as the Servi-Car. The Servi-Car was one of several products aimed at businesses, and joined forecars, sidevans, and package trucks in Harley’s line of commercial vehicles. Servi-Cars were popular with police departments, car dealers, and numerous other businesses because of their versatility. Production of the Servi-Car ceased in 1973 after 41 years, making it one of the longest running production lines in Harley-Davidson history.
