The Harley-Davidson Motor Company
A 100-year HistoryBook - 2002
Harley-Davidson: A name that brings a smile to anyone who loves American motorcycles. For 100 years, that name has been synonymous with freedom, open roads, raw power and good times, and the Milwaukee motorcycles have spawned legions of fans world-wide who are fiercely loyal to their V-twin-powered machines and the company that built them. Since 1903, the Harley-Davidson Motor Company has endured wars, recessions, depressions, strikes, buyouts and buybacks, foreign competition, and ever-changing markets. It has survived all that, and thrived. Harley is now stronger than it's ever been, and shows no sign of slowing down. In the fourth edition of this classic history, author David K. Wright has revised and expanded the book to include all 100 years of the company's history. He covers the motorcycles, the men who built them, the owners, the dealers, the racers, and the entire Harley scene, from celebrity owners and police bikes to one-percenters, from restorers to custom bike builders. Wright's extensive research, candid style, and deep appreciation for Harley-Davidson's history combine to make this an important part of every Harley rider's library. This is the complete story of Harley-Davidson, the American motorcycle of the 20th Century -- and now, of the 21st Century as well. Every H-D fan, from first-time rider to grizzled veteran, will want this fascinating, all-too-true story -- now offered proudly without Harley-Davidson approval or endorsement. Book jacket.
