Harley museum opens exhibit on anniversary designs

Published:

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- A new exhibit at the Harley-Davison 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 Labor Day weekend.
