Based on a true story, "Harley and the Davidsons" charts the birth of this iconic bike during a time of great social and technological change beginning at the turn of the 20th century. Walter, Arthur and Bill risked their entire fortune and livelihood to launch the budding enterprise. Each of these men faced very different challenges, but it was the motorcycle that united their dreams and ambitions. Walter, Arthur, and Bill cemented Harley-Davidson's reputation as a builder of bikes that go anywhere, can ride hard and ignore all the rules. It's a legacy that has endured over 100 years - and at the heart of the brand and its loyal riders. Written by Discovery Channel

Great Historical Entertainment
29 October 2016 | by lrstafSee all my reviews

When viewing this series I assumed that this series was only meant to be entertainment. I'm not a motorcycle historian and don't want to be. I loved the first episode and how it depicted the founders of Harley Davidson as an inventor/engineer and a salesman. Walter appeared as a "Johney come lately" who had money and family relationship. He also appears to have a practical sense of mechanical things which often is needed to balance the inventive mind with the more practical side of things. I know this from my own experience as a design engineer.

The first episode depicted Bill Harley as a main character, but the other two episodes kind of relegated him to a back seat making Walter the star. I would have preferred to see Bill brought out more throughout the series.

The third episode sort of fell on it's face at the end. It appears that the point of the series seems to be to dramatise the founding era of Harley Davidson and not the more recent events in the company's history. Be that as it may, I feel the overall series was fantastic and would like to see a similar series on the beginnings of the Ford Motor Company.
