In 1903, William S Harley and Arthur Davidson, two friends, got together in a small Milwaukee basement with motorcycling in mind. Three years later, with the added help of two other Davidson brothers, the first true Harley-Davidson was born.

Little did they know then that this motorcycle produced in their 150-squared-foot shed was to become the stuff of myth and legend- a true American icon for generations of thrill-seekers.

Features of this work include: the complete history and evolution of Harley-Davidson, from its humble beginnings to its role as a cultural icon; a visual catalogue presenting every model ever produced; colour photographs and informative text capture the spirit of this legendary motorcycle; a wealth of information on a very special machine and its place in motorcycling history; and, over 570 colour photographs of every stage of the Harley's evolution, and of Harley's in action for nearly a century.

This well-researched book covers the history of the Harley-Davidson company and machine from its humble beginnings, through its rise to become the largest motorcycle company in the world.

Also included is a comprehensive and chronological catalogue of every Harley model that has ever been produced.

This highly photographic volume is both an excellent introduction for the new motorcyclist, and a classic reference and source book for more knowledgeable historians, collectors and motorcycle enthusiasts.
