In the collective imagine – and not only that of the two-wheel enthusiasts – Harley-Davidson is the name that has created a myth and a legend. From way back in 1903, when the celebrated brand was established, the American company’s motorcycles have been the forbidden dream of entire generations of bikers, who saw in the Harleys a style of life rather than simply a motorbike. In the scarce Italian language bibliography devoted to this celebrated brand, this new book bridges an important gap by covering the story of its origins right through to today, taking in iconic models like the Knucklehead, Panhead, Peashooter, K.R., Sportster, XR 750, Shovelhead, Evolution, Twin Cam and V-Rod. The illustrations in this book are of the first magnitude, with hundreds of colour photographs, taken by some of the most celebrated photographers in the United States, joined by precious, unpublished historical material that comes from the Milwaukee company’s own archives. The book closes with a chapter on Harley’s racing history.
