MILWAUKEE — The Harley-Davidson Museum launched a new website, harley-davidsonimages.com, to provide more opportunities for the public to engage in H-D’s history.

Harley-davidsonimages.com provides several reprint options, allowing customers to find photos they want and have them printed on various media, including stretched canvas, wooden signs, archival paper and more.

The collection of images on the site includes professional photography and candid shots dating back to 1903. There is a 1923 photo of two of the four founders of Harley-Davidson, William A. Davidson and William S. Harley. Both men were avid riders and sportsmen and were known to often sneak away on their Harley-Davidson motorcycle for an afternoon of fishing. This picture was taken after one of those trips. William A. Davidson’s great grandson Bill Davidson is the Vice President of the Harley-Davidson Museum.

The Harley-Davidson Museum is located at 400 West Canal Street in Milwaukee.
