Once you hear that iconic rumbling, you know there is a Harley-Davidson around. Harley-Davidsons are everywhere, and there is a solid following of motorcycle enthusiasts all across the world. The Ultimate Harley-Davidson book breaks down each model decade by decade. It is a wonderful format for Harley-Davidson lovers who enjoy reading the history that goes along with these wonderful machines. The entire book is bright and bold with complete and accurate information and outstanding photographs from past to present.
From the early days of the company to the days of Easy Ride, the reader gets a deep look into Harley-Davidson culture, specs, and mechanics. "The arrival of high-spec Japanese imports had another consequence. People wondered why, if Japanese 125cc machine could have an electric starter, and American 1200cc machine could not. Harley's response was to fit an electric starter to its FL models from 1965 to create the Electra Glide, possibly the most famous motorcycle model ever built. It even had a film named after it, Electra Glide in Blue (1973)."
Hugo Wilson, author and motorcycle enthusiast, has written many best-selling books on motorcycles and is the editor of the United Kingdom's top selling motorcycle magazine "Bikes". This book is well planned, and the decade by decade breakdown will help Harley lovers explore each era. The index is also bright and vivid for easy searching. Ultimate Harley-Davidson is a great collectors item or gift!
