Now you can see and read about nearly 200 of the most important motorcycles from the Archives collection in the new book, The Harley-Davidson Motor Company Archive Collection. The large format, 408-page hardcover book showcases a century of historic motorcycles through stunning studio photography and capsule histories --Enthusiast<br /><br />A perfect compliment to the book reviewed earlier(Harley_Davidson Co Motor Archive) it takes twelve of the images from the book with a brief explanatory passage beneath and could only be improved by using more mainstream images. Don't mind me: I'm just a little disappointed that I'm going to have to look at a Shortster for the entire month of May, which should be a happy month 'cos my birthday's in it. Mind you, everyone who has entered the photo competition except one will be miffed when November comes round because they'll be looking at a 1958 Panhead in precisely those colours for a whole month: Still, at least they'll have found out that it was a colour scheme produced specifically for the Shriners by the time December comes round. --American V , October 2008
This ones for all you Harley fans, this is an official Harley Davidson product featuring a selection of motorcycles from Harley Davidson s private collection. From an Aermacchi-Harley Davidson produced mini bike called the Shortster ,some really nice examples of early big twins through to the rare 1942 Model XA which was a big departure for Harley during the war with its BMW style engine and shaft drive. A very cool and my favourite of the bunch Harley Servicar from 1971, these 3 wheelers were in production for some considerable time before finally ceasing production in 1973 and for all you race rep types is the 1994 VR 1000 Road Racer in street trim, a bike built in limited numbers so that Harley could qualify for the Superbike series that year. A real good quality calendar with 12 very good quality photos and a piece on the history of each model shown --Brit Chopper, Oct 2008 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

He is utterly delighted with this book, when reading it he only puts it down if it becomes to heavy for him to hold, it is certainly a weighty tome.
