Praise

“Margie Siegal expertly ties together the mechanical evolution of the Harley engines with the social history of the iconic brand. Fully illustrated with historic images and pictures of the bikes, this book is a wonderful catalog of everything Harley-Davidson.” —Women Riders Now

“Lushly illustrated with images by photographer Dana Shirey and archival photos from the Dudley Perkins archive, there’s plenty of eye candy offsetting the well-researched text. Technical enough for the gearhead without intimidating the newbie, every reader is sure to learn something from this book’s straightforward and thoughtful perspective.” —Iron Trader News

“Oaklander Margie Siegal takes a historic, quirky, and technical look at America’s favorite motorcycle, the Harley-Davidson, in this fond remembrance of the chopper and its iconic rise. The pictures alone are worth a gander: Harley parades, vintage ads, lots of chrome. Siegal can discuss the technicalities without being boring and puts innovations in context.” —Oakland Magazine
