A Harley-Davidson is more than a motorcycle. It is a symbol of Americana, built from the ground up by founders Walter and Arthur Davidson and Bill Harley. Harley and the Davidsons charts the birth of this iconic bike during a time of great social and technological change beginning at the turn of the 20th century. Together these three young men, the sons of blue-collar immigrants, gave everything they had to ensure the survival of the company they founded.

The youngest of four brothers, Arthur was Harley-Davidson’s sales manager. A natural communicator with a reputation as a practical joker, Arthur deployed his charm to win powerful allies and secure the loyalty of customers and dealers alike. Born in Milwaukee in 1881, Arthur attended the same school as Bill Harley, where they became close friends - Arthur’s gregariousness complimented Bill’s quiet intelligence. Before long, Arthur and Bill started tinkering with gasoline engines at home, hoping to one day attach one to a bicycle.
