The name Harley-Davidson is recognized the world over as an icon of the American lifestyle and the American Dream.
This year, 2002, the legendary motorcycle manufacturer celebrates the 100th anniversary with a travelling exhibition, an array of television programming and online events, and this landmark publication.
The author of the book is William G Davidson, grandson of the founder and the man who has personally styled some of their most popular bikes. This is the first time that 'Willie G.' - a god among Harley fanatics and the spiritual and stylistic life blood of the company - has told the inside story of the family business.
The book contains over 500 illustrations including rare and unseen photographs from the Harley-Davidson archives which feature races, rallies, famous faces and much, much more. Willie G's narrative includes family reminiscences about the company's origins; insight in the making of Harley's classic models; personal views about custom bike styles and the freewheeling biker life and behind-the-scenes accounts of the company.
