In 1901, William Harley who was 21 at the time completed a blueprint drawing of an engine designed to fit into a bicycle. During the year of 1906, there was a factory constructed on the Chestnut Street site, which was later called Juneau Avenue. In 1914, the Motor Company formally entered motorcycle racing. Your adult group trip to Kansas City will not be complete unless you take a Harley-Davidson Factory Tour. The tour allows visitors to have a behind-the-scenes look at various areas of the factory and motorcycle parts being put together. The tour is known as the Steel Toe Tour. During the experience, the group will have the opportunity to get up-close and personal with the Sportster, the Dyna, and the V-Rod model families. You will also learn about Harley-Davidson history. This is the only Harley-Davidson factory tour where you will have the chance to see a Harley-Davidson powertrain and vehicle assembled and brought to life. As part of the tour, the group will be taken through the manufacturing of parts such as fuel tanks, frames, and fenders. Guests will also get to get to go through some employee only areas of the factory in paint and polish. The group is required to wear safety gear such as a safety vest, safety glasses, and steel toe protection. These items are all provided by the factory. The group can have a photo taken as part of the experience. The tour will last two hours and the route is subject to change.
