Overview

At once a uniquely American icon and the international symbol of freedom, the sublime Harley-Davidson, with its sleek lines and dangerous image, has spawned a culture all its own. Used for touring, racing, and everyday transport; driven by soldiers in two world wars; and ridden by cops, hippies, and celebrities, as well as by ordinary folks with a yen for fun, Harleys have a way of getting under your skin like no other motorcycle in the world.

This book tells the story of the Harley-Davidson Company, from its origins in 1903 to the present day, describing years of financial difficulties and its rescue in 1981 from a management buyout. Authoritative text documents the technical developments and innovations that shaped the company's history and sales, and rare black and white photos and color shots display to wonderful advantage the beauty and power of various models, including the customized Harleys that have become a substantial industry on both sides of the Atlantic. 10" x 14" . 325 pp.

Two great customizers, Cyril Huze & Arlen Ness, not only show their outstanding motorcycles, but explain their philosophies and how they find their inspiration. Beautiful lay out & pictures. Very intelligent remarks from both builders. A great source of inspiration for all Harley owners.

This book is amazingly researched. Specs and pictures of most Harley Davidsons. I you have unanswered questions about the specs on Harleys or if you are a information junkie like me, you will be pleased.
