Vintage is in and almost every major motorcycle manufacturer knows it. Everyone from Triumph to Honda is either resurrecting or redesigning new “old” models.

Harley-Davidson has taken this interest in the archaic one step further by producing a TV series highlighting their racing roots and history.
