Harley-Davidson Museum

Harley-Davidson has opened, just this summer, a museum in Milwaukee WI. Since the inception of the company they had the fore thought to retain one of everything so after 104+ years they have put some of it on display. After several hours in the museum I stopped by the corporate headquarter on Juneau Ave. To most this is of little significance but Harley-Davidson is an icon in American Industry, neither General Motors or Ford have performed longer. I had a couple of questions while at the museum about duplicating the 1933 tank art on my motorcycle and the staff was extremely helpful; in the end I met the Curatorial Director who said he would help after the 105th celebration, which is underway this weekend. I never expected to get that kind of help.

Glad you had fun. Looks like they're ready for the 10th invasion. Is that Liberace's leather riding outfit?

The 50s were not kind to all looking back, then Elvis made it cool. DAL
