A Harley-Davidson motorcycle is no mere means of transportation. Celebrated on screen, in song, and in story, these thundering two-wheeled titans are national icons, regarded worldwide as symbols of the American love of freedom and the open road. In Ultimate Harley-Davidson, renowned "Harleyologist" Hugo Wilson profiles 50 classic models-from the E-heads of the early 1900s to the 1999 Twin Cams-with glorious color photos, specially-commissioned cutaway diagrams, and complete technical specifics. The profiles include not only the company's racing, sporting, and touring bikes, but also examples of dressed and custom Harleys and rarities like the 1965 Topper scooter and 1969's three-wheeled Servi-Car. And there's much more, including an authoritative history of the Harley-Davidson company; interviews with veteran Harley-Davidson employees; a guide to the people, places, and phrases of the Harley world; even a dictionary of "Harleyspeak."
