Harley-Davidson Video: Part 1: Meet the Riders | Journey of the Iron Elite

Last February during Black History Month, Harley-Davidson launched an exhibit at its museum in Milwaukee, showcasing the evolution of African-American motorcycle culture.

The exhibit was a successl, and features such items as the bikes, stories and images of many historical figures in biker culture, including William B. Johnson, the first African American Harley-Davidson dealer, and Bessie Stringfield, the first known African American woman to ride solo cross-country on a Harley motorcycle in the 1930s and 1940s.

Along with this exhibit at the Harley-Davidson Museum, H-D continues to showcase its Iron Elite, which debuted in 2010; this part of The Motor Company’s website showcases African America rider stories, custom motorcycles and legends.

Harley-Davidson says “The Iron Elite community at gives visitors a chance to share personal Harley-Davidson stories, show off their bike customization and learn more about key African American motorcyclists who have significantly impacted the sport of motorcycling.”

Attached above is Harley’s latest video about the Iron Elite, titled: “Part 1: Meet the Riders | Journey of the Iron Elite: Bond of Brotherhood.”
