Hey you! Summer's almost here!
And to many, that means one thing, and one thing only: Time to hop on your Harley and RIDE, baby!
Bill Harley and Arthur Davidson made a historic move in 1903 when they opened their shop in a small shed in Milwaukee.
If there's another museum where what's parked in front rivals what's inside on exhibit, I'd be hard pressed to think of it.
But thanks to clever installations, many of the bikes on exhibit seem to be more in motion those revving their engines on the street.
This exhibit mimics the look, feel and (loud) sound of a racetrack. It's like you're there!
These bike were designed for delivery. During all four seasons. In the midwest. In winter.
If these floors could talk...
Seriously. Who doesn't have a few bikes in their office?
Or a chopper?
Wow. "Nowhere else on earth will you see so many original Harley's in one place."
I want to be Dot for a day.
An impressive wall of 100 contemporary Fat Bob fuel tanks are painted with various Harley Davidson logos. Spanning almost 80 years, in chronological order, the different paint schemes, pin-striping and logo designs make each tank a work of art.
Components to a Harley Davidson are myriad and the choices are many. I've been in awe of my brother's ability to not only build a Harley from a from scratch. In fact, he doesn't just order the kits for certain parts. He orders the components and creates his own kit.
