The design of motorcycles evolved from bicycles during the 1800s. Many people
created self-propelled “motorbike” versions, including the steam-powered
(via charcoal) motorbike invented by Sylvester H. Roper in 1868.
The first motorbike to run on gas and was commercially designed, was a three-wheel
design invented in 1884 by Edward Butler.  However, first two-wheeled, gas driven
motorbike, was invented in 1885 by a Gotlieb Daimler. His version is considered to
be the first modern motorcycle by most experts.  Years later in 1903,
Harley-Davidson was founded.
