The Harley-Davidson Source Book celebrates these iconic motorcycles in encyclopedia form. Rich with vivid photography, insightful commentary, and production specs and data, this is the #1 resource for die-hard Harley fans all around the world. When most people close their eyes and imagine a motorcycle, that motorcycle looks very much like a Harley-Davidson. That’s because Harley builds the archetypal motorcycle, the mythic bike that exists beyond the input provided by our traditional senses. This is what the philosopher Kant called a priori knowledge, knowledge we can’t learn but only intuit. That makes a Harley-Davidson the a priori motorcycle. The Harley-Davidson Motor Co. builds motorcycles that look the way the primordial biker inside each of us feels a motorcycle should be built. This is why Harley-Davidson defines the very word motorcycle for so many people. In The Harley-Davidson Source Book, acclaimed Harley-Davidson historian Mitchel Bergeron covers every motorcycle the company has built, from the very first prototype to the Silent Gray Fellow to the latest CVO Electra Glides and Softails. They’re all here—the Knucklehead, the Panhead, the Pea Shooter, the KR, the Sportster, the XR750, the Shovelhead, the Evolution, the Twin Cam, the V-Rod, and all the rest. An authoritative text by noted Harley-Davidson historian and journalist Mitchel Bergeron complemented by modern and period photography and archival marketing materials make this Harley reference complete. The Harley-Davidson Source Book showcases the most storied, celebrated, and downright wild motorcycles ever produced by the Motor Company. This is the ultimate encyclopedia of the ultimate motorcycle.
