  • Beans: 66 - the road, 1903 - Year of creation of the brand, the eagle - America/freedom, the logo Harley Davidson, the US flag revisited by Harley Davidson, the star and the V-Twin engine),
  • This successful co-branding, unmatched in the industry, offers customers true specialized truck luxury. The Ford brand linked with an industry leader to offer the best of the best.
  • The tradition of customization and the ability to express an individual personality on a motorcycle is what makes Harley-Davidson so appealing to millions around the world. Gibson Guitar enjoys the same notion of customisation through its legendary guitars
