This illustrated guide is packed with interesting facts and follows the history of the famous Harley-Davidson company and the development of its famous bikes, which have earned a special place in the hearts of enthusiasts everywhere. The story dates from 1903 when Bill Harley and the Davidson brothers, with no thought of fame or fortune, decided to build a motorcycle that really worked. So successful was it, that it led to the gradual formation of a company that has survived through good times and bad.

Through good times and bad, losing and winning back police contracts, as well as weathering various other vicissitudes, the company has achieved lasting success. In the end, Harley-Davidson came to the ultimate decision of giving its customers what they really wanted, not by providing year-on-year innovations, but by remaining true to the Founders' original concept. The result, as everyone knows, are bikes of mythic status, imbued with a mysterious quality of their own and generating a passion in enthusiasts amounting almost to a love affair. The name has come to personify America and is up there alongside Coca-Cola, Ford and McDonald's.

The bikes are described in detail, not only in mechanical terms, but also with glorious photographs, and will be of interest to everyone who loves motorbikes: even aficionados of Japanese and European bikes, who have never even ridden a Harley-Davidson, will be able to recognize the unique marriage of style and nostalgia and the fact that there are no other bikes quite like them.

About the Author:

Peter Henshaw has for many years been a full time journalist specializing in motorcycles, and is currently editor of Motorcycle Sport & Leisure magazine. His small collection of beloved Harleys keeps him fully occupied in his spare time, as well as his keen interest in customization, and his many trips to the United States and the rest of the world has allowed him to amass a store of knowledge which has enabled him to co-write this wonderful book. He lives in Dorset, England.

Ian Kerr is a full time police officer, and his keen intererst in motorcycles, Harley-Davidson in particular, has made him extremely knowledgeable, allowing him to work as a motorcycle journalist in his spare time.

He lives in Buckinghamshire, England.

Garry Stuart has been professionally photographing motorcycles for 20 years, and his work has been published in books and magazines on motorcycles worldwide. His main interest is to document the world of Harley-Davidson motorcycles and their riders, and for this purpose he attends rallies and events all over the USA and Europe.

His photographs have illustrated over a dozen books on the subject of Harley-Davidson, and examples of his current work can be viewed on his website www.harleypics.com.

This illustrated guide is packed with interesting facts and follows the history of the famous Harley-Davidson company and the developmentof its famous bikes, which have earned a special place in the hearts of enthusiasts everywhere. The story dates from 1903 when Bill Harley andthe Davidson brothers, with no thought of fame or fortune, decided to build a motorcycle that really worked. So successful was it, that it led to the gradual formation of a company that has survived through good times and bad. Building on the Founders original idea of producing reliable and sturdy bikes, Harley-Davidson initially resisted racing, but was eventually faced with competition from outside the United States, which left it no alternative but to join the fray. Through good times and bad, losing and winning back police contracts, as well as weathering various other vicissitudes, the company has achieved lasting success. In the end, Harley-Davidson came to the ultimate decision of giving its customers what they really wanted, not by providing year-on-year innovations, but by remaining true to the Founders original concept.
