The Classic Harley

The Classic Harley

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
A Harley-Davidson motorcycle is unlike any other. American-made, heavy, and pulsating, it is set apart by its uniqueness. But the Harley is also a symbol for such things as brotherhood, masculinity, loyalty, and being an outsider. Williams tries to capture those attitudes and the spirit of the machine itself through images both of Harleys and of the Harley culture that embodies much of the symbolism. This photo assemblage offers colorful glimpses of customized Harleys, epic events like the annual Sturgis, South Dakota, rally, and lives that appear to be lived on the fringe. Aside from a brief company history of Harley-Davidson, the text is largely companion narrative for the photos and doesn't offer much substance. This is light fare, and though it's not a necessary purchase, it will probably be frequently off the shelf; the allure of Harley is strong.
