As someone who is interested with the people racing the machines I was a little disappointed with the book. While it gives a very good, concise history of the two brands and the men that ran the companies it really does not focus that much on the racers who played out the rivalry on the boards, dirt tracks and hills. The book also seems to focus on the Indian Company more than the Harley company. Naturally one finds themselves rooting for the underdog Indian to find them loosing out in the end. I definately recommend this book for people interested in the history of these companies.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A great story of American ingenuity 8. April 2014
Von Steve Proctor - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
If you could choose only one American made motorcycle, what side would you be on? Harley-Davidson and Indian motorcycles went head to head as rivals on the American motorcycle market and the feud was fierce. By sharing a true-life story of two friends with opposing bike-loyalty, this book offers a look at both sides of the coin.

"Back in 1903 or so, when Indian was the King of motorcycle manufacturers and Harley-Davidson was an upstart working out of a shed, an Indian rider met a Harley rider on the open road. They looked each other in the eye, chorused, "Bet mine's faster," and set out to settle the issue. For the next 50 years, the two makes raced, fought, won, lost, and traded insults."

Allan Girdler has written a multitude of books on Harley-Davidson and has the knowledge that does this book justice. (See also: Harley Davidson Sportster and Harley-Davidson Racing, 1934-1986) Written with humor, accuracy, and ferocity, this book details the war between the two companies in a unique way that is entertaining and insightful. The book doesn't much talk about those who raced the bikes, however; it highlights the bikes and those who made the companies what they are.

The storytelling is real and speaks to the characters of those that were involved in the real-life saga. Harley or Indian fans alike will love this book look into this period of excitement and adversity in motorcycle history.

5.0 von 5 Sternen evolution, not revolution 22. Juni 2013
Von Michigan Reviewer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Very fun book about, as the title quite clearly states, the early rivalry between Milwaukee and Springfield, MA. Not being 109 years old I have to admit that my knowledge of the Indian marque is somewhat limited. I see one once in a blue moon, if that often. It is a darn shame, as according to this book, they were certainly a fantastic part of American motorcycle history. The research into the book is quite extensive. Certainly far more information than this Vespa owner would ever need to know, but fun nonetheless. The author does have a very clever and dry sense of humor. Unfortunately some of the Chinese proofreaders were not quite as good. Harley is certainly an evolutionary company. No revolution in Milwaukee or York, but we see which brand is still around. Great background as to why Indian folded. Also good insight into the British and Japanese invasions that actually had the Motor Company looking in its rear view mirror. For those who have been around a while or who may have a relative who had the good fortune of owning an early example of either make, this book is great fun. For me it was quite educational and a fun read as well. Worth your while.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A work of art 24. Juli 2013
Von Sissy Sue - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
My husband who is a photographer was completely blown away by the excellent photography. He said you would expect to pay $40 for a book of such quality. He liked how the photographer shot different angles of the bikes so that you could see them from another perspective. The author has written many other books on Harley-Davidson and his expertise makes him an appropriate authority on this subject matter. It is hard to choose sides in this war!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Facts between the Facts 8. April 2005
Von Kirk Perry - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
A great read. Worth the price, if you like Indian and Harley history. Turns out that Paul du Pont was actuallly a "wrench" disguised as a "suit". Many first read stories within the covers. 5-stars for research.
