Harley-Davidson was founded in 1903 and has certainly become one of those iconic brands of the motorbike scene, producing many sought after heavyweight bikes and other merchandise. Harley-Davidson Inc. does not sell stock directly to individuals. As a result, it is necessary to go through a third party, such as a registered stock broker, to make your desired purchase.
Contact a stock broker. A list of stock brokers, working in the United States, is available in the resources section of this article. The stock broker will act as a middleman and purchase the Harley-Davidson stock on your behalf, which is necessary to carry out the transaction.
Study the stock information of the company before instructing your broker how much Harley-Davidson stock you would like to purchase. The page listed in the reference section will give you information regarding the current share price of Harley-Davidson and allow you to make an educated judgment on how much stock to buy through your broker.

Request a paper confirmation of your stock purchase by requesting a "Direct Registration Transaction Request Form" from Computershare by calling 866-360-5339. Fill in the needed information and return it. You will receive a paper confirmation once the form is received and reviewed. This confirmation will serve as a proof of purchase and, if you wish, a memento of your first purchase of this iconic company's stock.
Do not simply use your broker as a middleman. Ask their opinion and seek their advice; it is their job to be experts in this field and you may as well get value for your money and use their expertise fully.
