About the author (2002)

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.
