Happy 100th birthday, Harley Davidson! Celebrate a century of the most exciting motorcycles ever made in 448 exciting, thrill-inducing pages of color photographs. With images of every Harley ever produced and sold, and complete specs on each one, this beautiful, oversized volume will rev cycle lovers' motors on high. Beginning with the first model made in 1903 (which zipped along at a grand 25 miles per hour), there's information on the motorcycle's designation, engine, bore & stroke, displacement, torque, Bhp, and top speed. In sparkling images, see 1907's Silent Gray Fellow, with its bicycle-like frame; move on to the post-war Hydra Glide, aimed at a totally new market; the Dyna Glide, born in 1947 and existing in all its shiny glory till 1996; the Evo Sportster, offered in two engine sizes; and right up to today's sleek, fast cycles. There are also brochure covers, countless close-ups of smaller details, and a wealth of other fascinating facts.
