Five stars - and Three Cheers for Willy G.,
This review is from: 100 Years Of Harley-Davidson (Hardcover)
First - a confession.
I own a Harley-Davidson Heritage Softail Classic centenary edition motorcycle, and I love it to bits. The Heritage Softail is one of Willy G's most successful designs which helped save the H-D company from going bankrupt. As he says in the book "There's nothing like hitting a Home Run when you really need one".
So, for me - Willy G can do no wrong.
This book is a fantastic chronology of the first 100 years of Harley-Davidson. What makes this book stand out from the dozens of other H-D books is the personal touch from Willy G who is a very likeable character. Family photos and anecdotes, plus his insider view of the motor company provide the reader with a unique insight.
Great photos if classic H-D bikes - they're all there, Glides, Sportsters, Softails, etc. Even the ugly V-ROD gets a mention!
There's a place on every biker's coffee table for this book. It will provide many years of enjoyment - I just wish that I will be around for the 200th anniversary edition.
Keep on ridin'....
