Not yet rated | write a review
 The exciting color history of the battle between Harley-Davidson and Indian for control of the American motorcycle market. Includes color photographs of restored motorcycles, archival photography prior to World War II, advertisements, race posters, and memorabilia. Harley-Davidson and Indian mirrored each other's designs, with one and then the other, introducing new technology and forcing the other back to the drawing board. Harley-Davidson eventually prevailed when Indian went out of business in 1954, yet the rivalry is still evident today.

The Harley-Davidson and Indian Wars is a story of triumph and tragedy, never told before, and it's as American as, well Indian and Harley Davidson.
