Cruise through this collection of Harley-Davidson's most iconic motorcycles!
When most people imagine a motorcycle, chances are they picture a Harley-Davidson. That's because Harley-Davidson machines look the way the primordial biker inside each of us feels a motorcycle should look. In short, Harley-Davidson makes mythic bikes. Harley-Davidson: The Complete History celebrates these iconic motorcycles, presenting them all in one beautifully illustrated book.
The most beloved and recognizable motorcycles are included here: the Knucklehead, the Panhead, the Peashooter, the KR, the Sportster, the XR750, the Shovelhead, the Evolution, the Twin Cam, the V-Rod, and all the rest. Pages in the book reveal historic images as well as modern photos from the top motorcycle photographers working today. Additionally, there are chapters from some of the most celebrated motorcycle writers of all time: Peter Egan, Kevin Cameron, Ed Youngblood, Allan Girdler, Steve Anderson, and many more. All of this material combines to tell the story of every major motorcycle that Harley-Davidson has built, from the first prototype to the Silent Gray Fellow to the latest liquid-cooled CVO Electra Glides and Softails. Harley-Davidson: The Complete History is the ultimate history of the ultimate motorcycle company.
Ultimate Triumph Collection presents nearly 80 perfect Triumphs, from early singles to an immaculate Speed Twin, from an iconic 1953 Blackbird to a pair of 1970 Bonnevilles, all belonging to one man.
What started as a restoration project on an old motorcycle 20 years ago grew into a small collection of nice Triumphs. For most men that would have been enough. For Bobby Sullivan, those first few bikes only served to whet his appetite. With a single-minded focus, Bobby started to buy not just bikes, but the parts needed to restore those bikes. Thus the collection grew, from 10 bikes to 15, and from 15 to 50. As it grew in size, it also grew in quality and depth. First it was Bonnevilles and TR6s. Next came the hard-to-find TT and C models. Twenty some years after restoring that first Triumph, Bobby Sullivan found himself the proud owner of more than 100 Triumphs - and nearly 80 of those perfect restorations are presented here.
The meat of this book is the photos of those very bikes, presented one bike per page, each with a short caption. Photos need context; collections aren't built in a vacuum. Chapters one and two provide a history of both the collection and the man who built it. Most collections contain a few gems, and those bright diamonds fill the final chapter: The T110 with Swallow side car, the ultra rare 350cc 3H, the '38 Speed Twin, and the new first-year Bonneville.
Ultimate Triumph Collection is an inside look at one man's obsession - one man's successful quest to assemble and own the world's best personal collection of the world's most beautiful motorcycles.
