The first Harley-Davidson was created in 1903 by William S. Harley and Arthur Davidson. Though they were passionate about their work and their creation, one has to wonder if they had any idea what an American icon the Harley would become. In a lot of ways Harley-Davidson is what America is all about; the American Dream. Take your passion, build on it and see your product become successful and, in this case, part of the American Landscape.
