Publisher Comments:

Motorcycles have been a way of life for Jean Davidson. Her grandfather was Walter Davidson, one of the four founders and the first president of Harley-Davidson. Her father was company vice president Gordon Davidson. And Jean herself was a Harley-Davidson dealer, rubbing elbows with all the Harleys and Davidsons as well as the Hell's Angels and Outlaws, famous racers, and Evel Knievel. This is the history of Harley-Davidson motorcycles no one else knew-until now! Here is the fairy-tale story of how four boys built their first motorcycle in a shed; how a slippery-handed maid stole all the company's earnings from the coffee can that served as their "bank"; and how a hermit uncle donated his life's savings to resurrect the company and set it on the path to becoming the world's most famous motorcycle maker. Here is the inside scoop on behind-the-boardroom-door politics and corporate battles, the unknown history of the first Knucklehead and Sportster, the secret friendship with arch-rival Indian motorcycles, and more. Here are family stories and rare photos from the family album that no one else has seen before.

Book News Annotation:

Jean Davidson is the granddaughter of Walter Davidson, first president of the Harley-Davidson motorcycle company. In this memoir, she describes her childhood, the beginnings of the company, the development of some of the most popular models, the rivalry with Indian Motorcycles, and her experience as a motorcycle dealer. The text is accompanied throughout by b&w photographs of motorcycles, the Davidson family, and the company's early advertising.
