What do you get when you combine the world's most passionate riders with the world's greatest motorcycles? You get the epic story of the Harley-Davidson that comes to life in the Harley-Davidson Traveling Museum. This 18-wheel semi-trailer is packed to the axles with raw Harley-Davidson passion and its coming to Harley-Davidson/Buell in Fremont Wednesday, Dec. 5.
Without a doubt, the passion of Harley-Davidson riders has made Harley-Davidson famous around the world. Because of the close relationship with riders, Harley-Davidson has been able to create great products, services and experiences. The Harley-Davidson Traveling Museum tells the story of how the H-D legend has evolved, from the first Harley V-Twin engine in 1909 to the new Twin Cam 96 engine for 2007; the very first Sportster that rolled off the assembly line in 1957 to the 2007 50th anniversary model. This traveling display of motorcycles, personal photos, and memorabilia from the Harley-Davidson Archives presents the story of how a legend was created by one of the world's biggest families.
The Harley-Davidson Traveling Museum rolls across the country every year and stops with its celebrated cargo at only a handful of select dealerships. With exhibits including the 50th anniversary of the Sportster family, one-of-a-kind models from the Harley-Davidson original collection dating back to 1903, and an exciting preview of the Harley-Davidson Museum scheduled to open in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in 2008, the Traveling Museum is bound to impress.
The Traveling Museum will be at Harley-Davidson/Buell in Fremont on Wednesday, Dec. 5 from 10 a.m. - 7 p.m. Admission is free.
For more information, call (510) 657-7200.
