This exhibit details the founding of both Indian and Harley-Davidson in the early 1900s and the subsequent five-decade battle to become the world’s premier motorcycle manufacturer. Over a century after producing their first motorcycles, owners and motorcycle enthusiasts continue to debate the merits of each manufacturer. Harley vs. Indian will provide a rare opportunity to consider the achievements of these two-companies side-by-side. Through the pairing of period-specific examples unique to each brand, the exhibit will illustrate the breadth of their product mix over time and highlight significant vehicles that have come to be regarded as milestones in the growth of both companies.
