If you're a nut for old Harleys...
23 July 2013 - Published on Amazon.com
If, like me, you're a nut for old Harleys, then you'll appreciate having this gem around. It is a fascinating collection of Harley-Davidson Motor Company advertisements in a nice, accessible format. The experienced reader of motorcycle literature will find little ground-breaking here - many of these images may also be seen in any of the dozens of Harley-themed tomes released in the past twenty years or so - but there ARE some rarities, including a number of European-market adverts in languages like Dutch, German and Portuguese. In addition, most of these are presented without competition from neighboring images (a common practice in those other books, and one that always bugs me) and the images are crisply reproduced on good quality paper. The brief text was originally written in German, and the text (along with technical information from select foreign-language adverts) has been translated into vernacular English by a Connecticut university professor, so it's very readable. I give the book four stars, rather than five, only because a book of this type, consisting primarily of detailed images, should be printed in a larger format. Still, even at its current size (10 1/2" x 7 5/8") it's a handsome little book, good for light reading, reference, or gifting your favorite motorcycle lover.
