William G. Davidson became Harley-Davidson's vice president of styling in 1978. Willie G., as he's called by riders from Maine to Malibu, is the grandson of William A. Davidson, who with his two brothers and WIlliam S. Harley started the company nearly a century ago. Since the early '60s, Willie G. has been involved in the design of every model the company has produced, and he is unquestionably the protector of all things sacred at Harley-Davidson.
With sexy full-page photo spreads and plenty of motorcycle lore, this commemorative volume celebrates the centennial of the legendary motor company. Davidson, vice president of Styling at Harley-Davidson and the grandson of one of the original founders, gives a decade-by-decade account of the company and the rise of biker culture. He describes the tinkerers perfecting the "motorized bicycle" in the basement of the Davidson family home in Milwaukee, Wisc., in 1903; the role of women riders-who were among the bike's earliest enthusiasts-and H.O.G. rallies and socials; and, of course, the postwar decades when rebel types "eager to have too much fun" captured the public imagination and forever changed the image of the motorcycle. The book includes two-page spreads of motorcycles for years during which Harley offered a new design, and Davidson shares his own passion for the machines and his memories of the family business throughout.
