Motorcycles evoke a romantic image of freedom; of cruising unencumbered down a highway towards unlimited possibilities. Songs have been written about them, fashion has been inspired by them, movies stars have made their name on them, and lifestyles have been built around them. No single manufacturer embodies the allure of motorcycles more than Harley Davidson. This magnificent book takes readers on a trip that traces the legendary history of one of most enduring icons of the 20th century.Blending entertaining anecdotes with a meticulously researched history accompanied by hundreds of archival photographs, "The Great Book of Harley Davidson" chronicles the evolution of the world's most famous motorcycle manufacturer. The history takes us from 1903, when the first Harley emerged from a wooden shed in the backyard of the Davison family, to the 1920s by which time Harleys were available in 67 countries worldwide, to the emergence of the chopper and finally the streamlined "hogs" of today. The text and photographs demonstrate the production process and innovative technology that have made Harley the most famous manufacturer in the world. The second part of the book spotlights the most cutting-edge HD customizers, including Arlen Ness, Cyril Huze, and their disciples, who turn a mechanical wonder into a work of art.
