The Ultimate Harley-Davidson BookBook - 2000
In this sumptuously photographed visual history, best-selling author Hugo Wilson showcases the bikes and tells the story of the company and the machines that came to embody the American dream. World-Famous Harleys: Harley-Davidson is a success story without parallel. Hugo Wilson charts the company and its bikes decade-by-decade, from the historic moment when the first model rolled out of a backyard shed in Milwaukee, through Harley's postwar golden age, to the sought-after bikes that distinguish the company today. Including exclusive photography from the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum in Birmingham, Alabama, this complete guide presents over 70 of the most beautiful, famous, and desirable Harleys of all time, from the 1911 V-Twin to the 1999 X1 Lightning. Over 50 models are examined in extensive detail - some over four pages - with breathtakingly clear close-up details of the engines and comprehensive technical specifications. Celebration of a Legend: Never before has a book so powerfully captured the spirit of Harley-Davidson. Hugo Wilson explores the history of the company, offering a glossary of Harley-Davidson terms and a guide to the people and places associated with the marque. Ultimate Harley-Davidson is the most complete and comprehensive guide ever produced to these legendary motorcycles.
