The Heroes of Harley-Davidson
One-hundred years of Harley-Davidson is often reduced to a tale of a machines. Equally fascinating, and often overlooked, are the men and women behind the machines. The Harley and Davidson founder, the engineers, the racers, the designers, the dealers, the flesh-and-blood heroes made the company and the bikes the success they are today. This book was written in cooperation with the Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum to accompany an exhibit that opened in 2003. After a brief introduction, the book is divided into three sections; 1. Heroes of H-D; 2. Exhibition catalog; 3. H-D historical overview.
