Harley Davidson: Founded around the turn of the century by William S. Harley, along with brothers Arthur and Walter Davidson, the American Motorcycle Manufacturer is one of few American brands to survive numerous economic challenges. As a brand, they’ve stood the test of time, capturing the hearts of millions around the world.
When motorcycle enthusiasts hear the name ‘Indian,’ images of bulky-engine’d, Harley-rivalling bikes are instantly recalled. The Indian brand was a staple of US two-wheel culture, with models such as the Scout and Chief synonymous with beautiful design and faultless dependability.
No one will argue that it takes guts to race any motorcycle. Modern-day bike racing continues to excite and thrill in a way that no other sport can match.
Sound design was once an underappreciated aspect of success within the motorcycle realm. For such objects of desire that aim to stir heart and soul, nailing an appealing shape and silhouette was enough to make or break the British entrants of the 60s and 70s.
