Harley-Davidson is the king of motorcycles, the one every rider dreams of owning. This lavish volume—with more than 20 foldouts—celebrates the American company and its legendary models, from its first single-cylinder bike in 1903 to the modern, large V-twin series products. These V-twin engines have propelled families of Harley-Davidsons with prestigious names such as Electra Glide and Softail that continue to thrill cyclists. Every model has its own story, and the ones told here give a surprisingly human dimension to Harley-Davidsons, and also provide insight into their technical data.
