In recognition of Harley Davidson's 100year anniversary, this definitive single-volume history features more than 300 photographs of some of the greatest motorcycles ever made by the legendary company -- including all the landmark bikes, new models for 2000 and 2001, such as the Twin Cam 88, Harley's new 1440c V-twin engine, and many rare historical archive prints of early models. Tod Rafferty has written several best-selling books on American motorcycles, including The Indian and The Complete Harley Davidson Encylcopedia.

Tod Rafferty has written several best-selling books on American motorcycles, including The Indian and The Complete Harley Davidson Encyclopedia.From Library Journal:
Next year marks the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Company, America's lone surviving motorcycle manufacturer. This volume, an updated version of a 1997 work, represents but a fraction of the products, promotions, and events that will commemorate the anniversary. Although journalist Rafferty provides an adequate overview of the company's history, development, and significant events by era, this book is essentially a showy pictorial treatment of Harley models and Harley history throughout the century, with more than 300 vivid color photographs. Many of the two-page close-ups of vintage Harleys are so finely detailed that oil flecks and pits in metal are visible. Numerous accompanying sidebars note distinctive features of each model. Better histories of Harley-Davidson are available (see, e.g., David Wright's The Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Company), but this pictorial tribute is an easy purchase at this price. For public libraries.
