Harley-Davidson's business

If you were to look up Harley-Davidson Motor Company in the 1907 Milwaukee City Directory what business would they be in? In other words, what were their products?

Harley didn't sell bicycles til the teen's. They didn't make them either. The Harley bicycles were made by the Davis Sewing Machine Company. Which also made the bicycles for the Dayton Motorcycle Company.
I don't know that Harley ever sold motorized bicycles either.

In the 1907 Milwaukee City Directory I found in the Milwaukee Public Library they are listed as, "Harley-Davidson Motor Company. Manufacturer of Motorcycle and Marine Motors"
