Harley Davidson Motorcycle Logo
The Harley Davidson logo is not only emblazoned on motorcycles, but also on pants, shirts, jackets, boots, belt buckles, pens, posters, wallpapers, and even underwear. The logo symbolizes a powerful emblem of Americana, and a famous hallmark or rite-of-passage among the world’s born-to-be-wild generations, inspiring the love, loyalty, and fascination among motorcycle enthusiasts of all ages. The Harley Davidson Company was started by William S. Harley in 1902. In 1903, partnering with Arthur Davidson, they assembled their very first two-cylinder motorcycle. The logo originated in 1910, and since then has never transformed beyond the infamous orange and black “bar and shield” logo, and it is recognized all over the globe. Eight decades later, Harley-Davidson founded the Harley Owners Group, known as HOG, to build on the long-held devotion and camaraderie of Harley-Davidson enthusiasts, to promote not just the motorcycle, but the lifestyle, around a thoroughly American icon.
