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.
