    Did it originally have white tires?

    I've no idea. Harley Davidson is a subject I need to read up on. I've just seen a photo of Harley and Davidson sitting together on a bike each. I never even knew it was two people. I always thought Harley Davidson was just the one person.
    I have a 1972 Land Rover Series III Truck Cab/Pick-Up and a 1962 Land Rover Series 2a Carawagon Camper.

    Not an expert (I'm not that old), but originally tires were white naturally. Later black was added to slow rubber decomposition from, I believe sunlight.

    Indeed...

    Making Tires Black, Instead of the Natural White Color of Rubber, Produces a Much Stronger and Longer Lasting Tire
