Harley museum opens exhibit on anniversary designs
MILWAUKEE - A new exhibit at the Harley-Davidson Museum features a behind-the-scenes look into the design process behind its anniversary celebrations.
The exhibit includes dozens of sketches showing the development of logos, displays demonstrating the manufacturing processes used to create the special anniversary parts, and examples of the limited-edition anniversary motorcycles.
Some artifacts, photos and stories date back to 1913.
The museum's vice-president, Bill Davidson, says the exhibit gives visitors a glimpse into their team's attention to detail in creating images and logos, including the designs for the upcoming 110th anniversary.
The exhibit, called "Designing a Celebration," will open Friday and be on display through Labour Day weekend.
Note to readers: This is a corrected item. A previous version incorrectly spelled Davidson.

More Fifty years ago, in 1964, U.S. President Lyndon Johnson signed the Wilderness Act into law, setting 54 areas aside for federal protection. It opened the way for an American wilderness system that has grown to more than 110 million protected acres in which, the act says, "the earth and its community of life are untrammeled by man, where man himself is a visitor who does not remain." More proposed areas await congressional approval, including the Rocky Mountain Front in Montana and the Columbine-Hondo in New Mexico.
