Synopsis

Harley-Davidson is probably the world's best known motorcycle marque. Apart from the thousands across Europe who are the proud owners of Harley-Davidson machines, there are many more motorcycle enthusiasts who revere the name and would dearly love to own and ride a Harley. Millions of loyal Harley fans can't be wrong. With their distinctive styling and sound, Harley-Davidson motorcycles have won the hearts of people from all walks of life and from all over the world The book captures just what it is about these bikes which makes them so popular. It is not only a tribute to the machines themselves but it focuses on the culture and lifestyles which have grown up around the Harley over the years. This is a book which any motorcycle fan will cherish. It is a superb anthology of stories, photographs and artwork that pays homage to the marque. Among the contributors is Evel Knievel, perhaps the best known biker in the world. For those who have a Harley or who dream of having one, this lavish and beautifully produced giftbook which will be turned to again and again. A superb lavishly produced gift book suitable for all motorcycle enthusiasts.

Review and editorial coverage in British motorcycle magazines is anticipated. Many of the book's contributors will be well known to its potential readership. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Gebundene Ausgabe .

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Most of the Harley-Davidson memorabilia books I have read do a fine job of either showing all of the models over time or telling the story of how the product has developed from the beginning. This book also does well in those areas. This Old Harley has the additional benefit of containing fine writing by many of the best authors who have ever written on the subject.

Here are the chapters and the key essays:

1: In the Beginning . . .

"What My Folks Didn't Know, Didn't Hurt . . . Me" by Allan Girdler (former editor of Car Life and Cycle World, and executive editor of Road & Track)

"No Motorcycles Allowed" by Arlen Ness (with Timothy Remus) (Arlen is one of the best-known Harley artists in creating custom machines)

"First Harley" by Peter Egan (columnist and writer for Cycle World)

2: Making History

"My First Motorcycle . . .

Oh, yum! 16. Februar 2001
Von kellytwo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I grew up in the country, in the days before there was much in the way of public transportation. Gasoline was rationed and it was expedient to think before blithely getting in the family car to go off joy-riding. How fortunate I was, then, for my family to have friends who owned motorcycles. Big, brawny men who rode big-brawny motorcyles. Indians and Harley-Davidsons were as much a part of my childhood as the family dogs, Bing and Chip. For two summers in the mid 40s, I even rode to Sunday School every week, on the back of a Harley. (Grandma didn't like that idea very much, but on the other hand, it got me there!) This lovely, splendidly-illustrated book brought back so many wonderful memories, especially the paintings of Dave Barnhouse, one of which adorns the cover, and is again featured on a double-page spread in the book. Another wonderful artist is James "Kingneon" Guçwa, whose paintings in a photorealistic style are so very real and lifelike that you want to reach out to touch those wonderful machines.
Other artists, either those who use words, or those with a camera are also represented in the 160 pages here. Some of the essays will bring smiles, or laughs, or even a wince or two at the reminiscences, especially if they blend in with--or even mirror--your own. Chapters are devoted to 'In the Beginning', 'Making History', 'On the Road', 'Daredevilry', 'Legends' and 'The Mystique'. Photos range from the early days of both photography and motorcycles, to eye-dazzling custom and even 'over' customized beasts. (Many with full technical specifications provided.)
Spending a few hours with this book is almost--not quite, but almost--as good as riding down the highway, the sun and the wind caressing your face (and sometimes its rain or snow!), the full-throated chugga-rumpety, chugga-rumpety of the exhaust echoing through your helmet.

A Well-Balanced Tribute to Harleys and Those Who Love Them 15. August 2003
Von Donald Mitchell - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Most of the Harley-Davidson memorabilia books I have read do a fine job of either showing all of the models over time or telling the story of how the product has developed from the beginning. This book also does well in those areas. This Old Harley has the additional benefit of containing fine writing by many of the best authors who have ever written on the subject.
Here are the chapters and the key essays:
1: In the Beginning . . .
"What My Folks Didn't Know, Didn't Hurt . . . Me" by Allan Girdler (former editor of Car Life and Cycle World, and executive editor of Road & Track)
"No Motorcycles Allowed" by Arlen Ness (with Timothy Remus) (Arlen is one of the best-known Harley artists in creating custom machines)
"First Harley" by Peter Egan (columnist and writer for Cycle World)
2: Making History
"My First Motorcycle . . . and What It Led to" by Harry Sucher (well-known motorcycle historian)
"Catching Up on History by David Wright (author of The Harley-Davidson Motor Company: An Official History) (Be sure to catch the photograph of Jayne Mansfield at the beginning of the essay and the "unauthorized" out-takes from the original book)
3: On the Road
"In Pursuit of the Unholy Grail" by Cook Neilson (editor of Cycle magazine from 1970 to 1979)
"A Work in Progress" by Timothy Remus (author of motorcycle art books)
"Riding Through Time: A Knucklehead Returns Home by Buzz Kanter (motorcycle racer and publisher of motorcycle magazines) (This is a great story of riding a cherry red 1947 Knucklehead from Connecticut to Milwaukee in the mid-1990s)
4: Daredevilry
"Hell Driving" by Lucky Lee Lott (motorcycle stunt star)
"Evel Ways" by Evel Knievel (no introduction needed)
5: Legends
"Once Upon a Time in the Wild West" by Michael Dregni (book author) (describes the outlaw imagery of early motorcyclists)
"The Billy Bike: Re-Born to Be Wild" by David Edwards (editor-in-chief of Cycle World) (how the Easy Rider bikes were re-created)
6: The Mystique
"V for Victory: How Harley Conquered the World by Ciara Fox (dedicated Irish motorcyclist)
"This Motorcycle Way" by Dr. Martin Rosenblum (the historian for the Harley-Davidson Motor Company)
"The Perfect Vehicle" by Melissa Pierson (author of a road-trip travelogue)
Along the way, all of my favorite memories of Harleys are recaptured, both visually and in discussions about sound. How many young people today know that the reason that all of those valuable baseball cards got shredded against the spokes of bicycles in the past was to imitate the sound of a Harley?
After you finish enjoying this wonderful book, take the time to make a long road trip on your favorite Harley!

RIP-OFF ALERT: same book, different title 22. Juli 2014
Von Bill J. from Austin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I am not surprised by (and heartily agree with) the high praise this book receives from readers here. My one-star rating is solely in response to the publisher's dishonesty. Nowhere in this item's description are potential purchasers warned that this volume is also published (page for page, picture for picture) as Harley-Davidson: The Good, The Bad and The Legendary (also available here at Amazon). That is a sneaky, underhanded way to con people into buying a book they already own.

However, please note that the book itself, under either title, is definitely worth owning. It is chock full of nice, seldom-seen vintage photographs, and artwork by artists like James Guçwa, Kent Bash and Dave Barnhouse. There are essays by Allan Girdler (who wrote The Harley-Davidson and Indian Wars and two authoritative Harley-Davidson buyer's guides), Melissa Holbrook Pierson (author of The Perfect Vehicle and The Man Who Would Stop at Nothing), Peter Egan (Cycle World columnist who wrote Leanings 1 & 2), Harry V. Sucher (who authored what many consider the definitive history of Harley-Davidson, a history of Indian motorcycles, and yet another, of the American Motorcyclist Association), Timothy Remus (How to Build the Ultimate V-Twin series, and several coffee-table books on custom motorcycles), bike builder Arlen Ness, daredevil Evel Knievel, Harley archivist and poet laureate Dr. Martin Jack Rosenblum, and a handful of others.

Again, I will not reward this dishonest publisher with a high rating, but any Harley-lovin' motorcycling enthusiast would enjoy the book described above. Just figure out which title you want on it - Harley-Davidson: The Good, The Bad and The Legendary or the one offered here - and order away!

****** PLEASE NOTE ****** I wrote the above review on 22 July 2014. Less than a week later I happened to leaf through another book - one that has been in my personal library for over a year - and was amazed to realize that it is exactly the same as the two books described above. That makes THREE titles (so far) for the exact same word-for-word, page-by-page, picture-for-picture book - "This Old Harley", "Harley Davidson: The Good, The Bad and The Legendary" and now "The Harley-Davidson Chronicles: Tribute to a Legend". All three are edited by Michael Dregni and published by Voyageur Press and, despite the fact that they are identical items, Voyageur Press even has the gall to use different copyright dates: 2000 for "This Old Harley", 2005 for "Harley Davidson: The Good, The Bad and The Legendary" and 2008 for "The Harley-Davidson Chronicles: Tribute to a Legend". By so doing they make it even more likely that unsuspecting buyers will fall for their scheme!
