An encyclopedia of the definitive motorbike from classic to custom - exploring the legend of an American dream

  • · · The ultimate reference book for aficionados of the most revered motorcycle in the world
  • · · The complete history and evolution of Harley-Davidson, from its humble beginnings to its role as a cultural icon
  • · · A thorough catalogue presenting every model ever produced
  • · · Packed with color photographs and informative text which capture the spirit of this legendary motorcycle
  • "If you have to ask..." said the Harley-Davidson slogan, "...you wouldn't understand." Just what is it that makes Harley-Davidson so special? The company makes motorcycles, true, but it is much more than a mere motorcycle manufacturer

— Milwaukee makes legends. The company that has become an American icon crafts heavy metal into love affairs, forges lifestyles and fulfils dreams.

As much myth as motorcycle — often imitated, never copied — there is simply nothing quite like a Harley-Davidson. Today, Harleys are as recognizable around the world as the Stars and Stripes, as ubiquitous as McDonald's and as prized for their rugged honesty as Zippo lighters and Levi's. They appear in movies and advertising; they're the wheels of choice for celebrities and stars. Elvis owned one and, according to the T-shirt at least, God rides one too. Men have raced them almost as soon as the first one came out of the shop. They have been a unique facet of American life through two world wars and a crippling Depression.Harley-Davidson's is the longest history in motorcycling, almost the story of motorcycling itself, and The World of Harley-Davidson is the epic tale of the making of an American legend.
