The American Harley

I know nothing about this motorcycle other than it’s a vintage Harley racing bike. I was so busy photographing it and falling in love with it, I didn’t hear a word of what the owner, Dale Walkster of Wheels Through Time, was saying about the bike. Anyway, isn’t it cool as hell? It reminds me of something I’d see in a Captain America movie. And the matching leather helmet? Fantastic, even though it’s utterly useless. Your brain would be mush if you ever crashed, but man, you’d make a great looking corpse. Photographed as part of an article on the history of Harley-Davidson racing.
