The Harley-Davidson Motor Co. Archive Collection

Book Review of Harley-Davidson's Latest Museum Effort



If you have ever been to the Harley Museum in Milwaukee this book will bring back good memories. If you have not then reading this book and seeing the photos will make you want to go.

The book is a 416 page hardcover using high quality paper and excellent photography.
I thoroughly enjoyed it and happy to have it in my collection and I am sure you will too.

From The Publishers

The Harley-Davidson Motor Co. Archive Collection, published in conjunction with Harley’s official museum in Milwaukee, showcases the Motor Company’s unrivaled motorcycle collection, featuring examples of its most significant machines.

The company has collected at least one example of nearly ever model ever produces, from serial number one in 1903 to the amazing luxury touring bikes today. With detailed studio photography and enlightening histories of each featured motorcycle, this book captures the excitement that has made Harley-Davidson® motorcycles the most desire vehicles ever built.

Who knew, over one hundred years ago, that the freedom-loving, speed-hungry, cutting-edge motorcycle fanatics who founded Harley-Davidson were making history along with bikes?

The Harley-Davidson Collection, showcasing a century of bikes that shaped motorcycle history, brings that history to gleaming life in page after page of motorcycles beyond compare. On the eve of the opening of the historic Harley-Davidson Museum, this book gives motorcycle enthusiasts an opportunity to pore over the bikes in the collection, and to linger over every detail that made Harley-Davidson such an icon of American open-road power and performance.

With exquisite, detailed photographs and histories of the hundred motorcycles in Harley’s collection, from serial number one built in 1903 to the latest low-slung Softail, high-revving VRSC, and touring models, the book captures the excitement of the best-known motorcycles in the world. All that’s missing is the patented roar, which readers are invited to supply.
