5 Fun Facts about Harley-Davidson:
Harley-Davidson was started in 1903 in a 10x15 foot wooden shed.
They are the world's largest motorcycle manufacturer.
The United States utilized Harley-Davidson motorcycles in both World War I and World War II.
Harley-Davidson motorcycles are nicknamed "hogs" because in 1920 when the Harley-Davidson racing team would win a race they would carry a small pig around the track. This little pig would become the team's mascot.
They were one of only two companies that were able to survive the Great Depression. During this time, to stay afloat and continue generating revenue, the company focused on making industrial engines.

Take that perfect Instagram photo on a full-size bike and feel like a real motorcycle mama when you visit the (airbrush) tattoo station and get some authentic-looking ink.

When the bike is completed it’s given a unique number, added to the permanent collection database, and presented above for all to see on the Virtual Road animation.
