In the world of motorcycles, there is nothing like a Harley-Davidson. And there is no book like this one about America?s iconic bike.

Period photographs and new color images feature the classic Harleys from Flatheads, Knuckleheads, Panheads, Shovelheads, Evolutions, and Twin Cams to Sportsters and the new V-rod. Lively text chronicles the company?s century, from the early years when Harley-Davidson grew from a backyard enterprise into the world?s biggest producer of motorcycles, to the Evolution revolution, which saw the company come back to self-management--and its greatest success ever.
For more than 100 years, Harley-Davidson has been the motorcycle--a beautiful machine combining power, performance, and infinite cool in all of its forms. And this is the Harley-Davidson book, conveying the full story and all the excitement of America?s motorcycle.
