It's the leader of the pack, a renowned American icon. From movie stars to GI's, and Hell's Angels to police officers, bikers who want to enhance their image ride a Harley-Davidson. Harleys evoke style and glamour, rugged individuality and fine craftsmanship--as every large-sized, beautiful photo here so clearly reveals. The story of this company is a remarkable one: from humble beginnings in a garden shed in Milwaukee, it conquered the world and survived the ravages of depression, mass imports, and takeover. Over 200 illustrations and a lively text capture the excitement of this magnificent machine, including the popular 100cc V-twin J model from the 1920s and 30s; the classic 1950s Duo-Glide and Electra Glide; and the latest XL. A loving tribute to the colossus of motorcycles.
