“Harley-Davidson is synonymous with American motorcycling, and we’re honored that the Motor Company is lending its support as we highlight the careers of seven new inductees as well as current Hall of Famer and 2014 AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Legend ‘Willie G.’ Davidson,” said AMA Chief Operations Officer Jeff Massey.

Tickets for the American Honda AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, presented by Harley-Davidson, range from $25 to $150 and are available online at www.motorcyclemuseum.org/events/halloffame2014.aspx.

“The essence of motorcycling is personal freedom, and that spirit finds its way into every Harley-Davidson motorcycle made,” said Harley-Davidson Vice President of Styling Scott Miller. “It’s our pleasure to help honor the accomplishments of these great motorcyclists, as well as the timeless contributions of 2014 AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Legend Willie G. Davidson.”
