The year was 1903, and America was eager for new ideas and inventions. Across the country, inventors worked steadily as two brothers were putting the finishing touches on their gas engine powered glider and another gentleman was testing his automobile in the suburbs of Detroit. In Springfield, Massachusetts, two men were producing a small robust motorcycle called the Indian. Meanwhile, in Wisconsin, Bill Harley and the Davidson brothers were determined to create a more dependable and powerful bike. They accomplished this task and their first motorcycle was paid for before it was even completed in 1903. When Bill Harley and Authur Davidson started tinkering with the idea of engine assisted cycling in 1901 they probably had no idea where it would lead. Harley-Davidson is the one motorcycle manufacturer who has managed to outlast all the others while becoming not only a legend, but a lifestyle in the process. This book tells the amazing story of the lone survivor of a once crowded market. So sit back and enjoy the ride of your life on these antique bikes. Let your imagination wander down the dirt roads, gravel roads and even across a frozen river on these historic bikes. Book jacket.
