"The book and its contents are truly art!" - RoadCaptainUSA.com

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Photographer David Blattel treats every photo shoot as a work of art. When his subjects are the works of art produced by the motorcycling maestros from Milwaukee, the results are doubly beautiful. Art of the Harley-Davidson® Motorcycle pulls together the best of Blattel’s Harley-Davidson portraiture--over 100 stunning machines--resulting in a breathtaking review of Harley-Davidson’s greatest hits from the early 1900s to today. Harley-Davidson expert Dain Gingerelli puts each machine in historical and technical context with informed profiles. The result is a handsome, informative overview of Harley-Davidson's 100-plus years of style and innovation.

Dain Gingerelli began writing for motorcycle and automotive magazines in 1970. He’s been an editor for six motorcycle magazines, and he’s authored numerous hot rod books for Motorbooks. His motorcycle titles include 365 Motorcycles You Must Ride and Harley-Davidson Museum Masterpieces.

Trailblaze with the Harley & Davidson Brothers 8. Juli 2014
Von Mike Grant - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
How many books offer gorgeously produced photos of motorcycles and rich historical context side-by-side? Ok, I can think of a few... but Dain Gingerelli's "Art of the Harley-Davidson Motorcycle" is one of the best! It is a hardcover coffee table book with photos by David Blattel that features more than 100 cycles. Many of these models were developed in the early 1900s, and some are much more modern.

In this book, we see how William S. Harley, Arthur Davidson, and Walter Davidson "blazed their own trails" in spite of the "little background to draw from". Their shared "passion for progress" kept them on the right path, allowing them to create works of art in the form of machinery.

The photos are remarkable in this book, making them the best feature. It is easy to see innovation and style put to use. Many of these motorcycles are unlike those you will see on the road today, and the background stats offered by Gingerelli only make the photos more compelling. Admitedly, those interested in real detail will have to continue onto other texts, like those by Allan Girdler. I recommend Harley-Davidson Xr-750 for the complete history of this popular bike and Harley Davidson Sportster for color images and narrative.

Gingerelli has been writing for auto magazines since 1970, and he has written similar books to this one - 365 Motorcycles You Must Ride and Harley-Davidson Museum Masterpieces. Additionally, Blattel has been a commercial photographer for a number of big-name clients. It is easy to discern why these two are the best creators for this book.

Everyone from the average motorcycle admirer to motorcycle collector will enjoy this book and its place in their library.

SpeedReaders.info Review 19. Dezember 2011
Von Speed Readers - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Author shot the official Harley-Davidson Motor Co. calendar for five years so he knows his Harleys! Text summarizes basic background and vital stats, accompanied by a more or less uniform set of specs. Readers with specialized interests will note that while road bikes with sporting ambitions are part of the line-up, outright competition bikes are not covered in as great detail. Entirely omitted are examples of the Buell brand (or the early 1960s-late 1970s Aermacchi-built Harleys. Among the 100-odd bikes that are covered there are a handful of decidedly unusual machines rarely included in H-D books and probably rarely even remembered by or associated with H-D by the general public.

Perfect for Harley enthusiasis 1. November 2011
Von John Joss - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
You need not love Harleys to love this book. David Blattel has assembled many of H-D's greatest machines in a visual poem or photo-history for the manufacturer, shot brilliantly in settings that fit the historical nature of the machines, assisted by the text of H-D aficionado Dain Gingerelli that captures the historical aspects of every machine photographed.

Handsomely produced in `horizontal' format as befits a book featuring motorcycle photographs, it goes back to Harleys from 1911 (the company was founded in 1903). It divides the subject into rational categories, from `Finding Form: the Early Bikes,' `Setting the World Standard: the Knuckleheads,' `Big Twins: thePanheads,' `Minimum Hog: the Small Harleys,' `Competition Hot: the Sportster Models,' `Kings of the Highway: the Touring Bikes,' `Factory Customs: Low Rider and Wide Glide Models,' `Civilized Choppers: the Softail Models,' `Setting the Records: the Race Bikes,' `Modern Muscle: the V-Rods,' to `Bespoke Bikes: Custom Vehicle Operations.'

Blattel's photos are wonderfully realized, with exquisite color reproduction, including environments and associated artifacts--charming old buildings, airplanes such as the Stearman--that complement the subject matter. He is a craftsman with his cameras and lenses, and devotes two pages to describing his equipment and methods. All the bikes he shot seem to be fully restored machines that glisten with the allure and polish of a supermodel, and their ownership is credited.

Blattel and Gingerelli have included some unusual machines, many unremembered in the motorcycle world. They include the 1955 Model ST (1948-1966), based on DKW's RT125 (built in the UK as BSA's Bantam, and by the Russians). Manufactured in the millions, it may represent among the world's highest-volume production runs in the industry's history. The 1963 BTH Scat is shown, and the 1995 MT500 military machine powered by an engine designed in Italy by SWM Motor Works, used by Harley's successful short-track AMA race team.

There are, disappointingly, curious omissions. A reviewer interested in telling the truth to readers must note them and mourn their absence.

There are no photos of one of the winningest race motorcycles of all time, Harley's XR750 dirt-track machine that has accumulated one of the most amazing records in the sport. The Aermacchi-acquired/H-D-branded bikes get short shrift. No `Sturgis.' No `Topper' scooter. No Buells.

No photos and only a one-line mention of the epochal VR1000, produced (50) in road trim for race homologation, a valiant but flawed attempt to attack AMA Superbike racing that involved such great riders as Miguel DuHamel and Chris Carr. In mentioning the V-Rod series, Gingerelli omits the fact that the twin-cam, four-valve, water-cooled 60-degree, vee-twin motor (vs. the marque's traditional 45 degrees), which shattered Harley's mold of air cooling and the use of either side or pushrod-operated overhead valves, was designed by Porsche in Germany. There are no mentions or photos of Harley's drag-racing machines that use the V-Rod engine--sensational winners today.

But nothing can take away the elegance and excellent publishing values that will make this a `keeper' for historians and anyone who cherishes a great American motorcycle. Discrepancies aside--the authors may have had their reasons--this book belongs on the coffee tables of every Harley enthusiast.

Bought this for a friend as a brithday gift. He loves it and it's a nice size, kind of like a "coffee table" book. The price was right and it was a packaged well and shrink wrapped.
