When browsing used Harley Davidsons for sale, there are five main categories of bikes that you will be looking it; and, there are several more specific types of Harley Davidson bikes for sale within each category. All Harley Davidson bikes for sale are designed for cruising (as compared to say, racing).

The first type of bike that you may find in Harley Davidson ads is the Sportster, which first appeared on the scene in 1957. Smaller and lighter than other Harley Davidson bikes for sale, the Sportster has the highest resale value in its class. This Harley Davidson for sale is good for back country roads, or more traditional city roads. When looking for a used Harley for sale for a younger and more vigorous rider, the Sportster would be a good bike to choose.

Next, we have the Dyna, which was developed during the 1980s, with the first of its kind coming out in 1991. This type of Harley Davidson for sale is similar to the Sportster, although it has a larger engine, and also resembles the Softail, which we will look into next.

This used Harley for sale contains a rear wheel suspension hidden under the transmission; this rear wheel suspension system includes shock absorbers to better handle bumps in the road.

A touring used Harley Davidson for sale is discernable by its large saddlebags and rear coil-over air suspension. These Harley Davidson bikes for sale are good for long distance riding - people who buy this type of bike are usually planning on doing a lot of riding. Because this bike is likely to be ridden a lot more than another Harley Davidson for sale, you will need to keep an eye on the tires, which may need to be changed more frequently to accommodate the extra wear and tear.

Finally, we have the VRSC Harley Davidson for sale, which stands for V-Twin Racing Street Custom. These bikes are the least traditional of the Harley models - they look like "drag style" bikes. As of 2008, anti-lock braking systems were installed on all VRSC model Harley Davidson bikes for sale.
