African-American riders have been among the most influential in our 110 year history, blazing trails for not only other African-American riders, but for the motorcycle industry at large. Consider legends such as William B. Johnson, the first African-American Harley-Davidson dealer; Bessie Stringfield, the first known African-American woman to ride solo cross-country on a Harley in the 1930's; and Benny Hardy, the custom bike builder who helped create the iconic “Captain America” motorcycle for the movie Easy Rider.

We pay tribute to these African-American Harley legends and others like them by creating a special, limited edition Iron Elite Patch. Visit Harley-Davidson at Bikers on the Boulevard, Atlantic Beach Bike Week and National Bikers Roundup to get your patch.
