    American Glory: 110 Years of Harley-Davidson needs your help

    Hey guys, as some of you may know, American Iron Magazine is putting out a special issue celebrating Harley's 110th Anniversary called American Glory: 110 Years of Harley-Davidson. Basically this issue is 196 pages thick, and is meant to be a collector's piece, and for those who may not be as familiar with The Motor Company's history, a learning experience. That's why we're coming to you.

    We're doing three reference sections in this special issue and are curious about what bits and pieces of information would be interesting. Fun Facts By Engines is basically taking each type of H-D motor and listing facts about it. H-D trivia is a quiz-type piece where we'll post a bunch of questions and then have the answers at the end in small type for people to test each other. Lastly, we're doing a H-D glossary which is a general list of Harley terms and descriptions.

    Let's hear what you guys think should be included in these sections. Feel free to write as much or little as you want. We're looking from basic beginner stuff all the way through seasoned Harley veteran information.

    Thanks in advance for your help, we're looking forward to what you guys come up with!

    -Tyler

    The Pope blessed H-Ds at the Vatican. How are you going to top that?

    Regarding what you guys are doing; everyone loves pictures. Pictures of motorcycles is what gets our attention, it's the history that gets people in trouble.

    So you're going to put out a special issue celebrating Harley's 110th Anniversary in their 109th year.

    How about a section on lesser known, low production or one of a kind Harley Davidsons why they were made and what happened with them ?

    What about a section on the people who have worked the production lines. They sure do deserve some credit...

    Would love to see a line chart showing sales growth in the number of motorcycles sold per year, over the 109 years.

    will it come with a pre order form for the 115th anniversary. seems like every 5 years somebody feels the need to come up with one of these issues of already printed photos. if it wasn't a beaten to death term i'd ask what country's paper it will be printed on.

    Some previously printed photos, but many new ones - including the Harley CAC racer I photographed this past weekend. We are printing American Glory: 110 Years of Harley-Davidson on American paper, from American mills, printed in America by American printers (in NY state), published by an American company owned 100% by Americans. So what was the initial question?

    Jiffy stand...kick stand

    Gear case cover...often called a cam cover

    Should just wait a year though for the real 110th, instead of perpetuating the "'03" myth and celebrating on the 109th- that cat has been out of the bag for a long time
