The Harley-Davidson Motor Co. Archive Collectionby Darwin Holmstrom
Synopses & Reviews
Who knew more than one hundred years ago that the freedom-loving, speed-hungry, cutting-edge motorcycle fanatics who founded Harley-Davidson were making history along with bikes? The Harley-Davidson Motor Co. Archive Collection, showcasing a century of bikes that shaped motorcycle history, brings that history to gleaming life in page after page of motorcycles beyond compare. This book gives motorcycle enthusiasts an opportunity to pore over the bikes in Harley-Davidson’s collection, and to linger over every detail that made Harley-Davidson such an icon of American open-road power and performance. With exquisite, detailed photographs and histories of the motorcycles featured from Harley’s collection, from serial number one built in 1903 to the latest low-slung Softail high-revving VRSC and touring models, this book captures the excitement of the best-known motorcycles in the world. All that’s missing is the patented roar, which readers are invited to supply.
