Our story opens with the motorcycle that is often referred to as "Serial Number One." Dating back to the first years of the company, this is the oldest known Harley-Davidson motorcycle in existence. Winding your way north through the five galleries on the first floor, the stories of the people, products, culture and history that made the Harley-Davidson Motor Company what it is today continue to unfold. As you meander downstairs to continue your tour, you'll experience some of Harley-Davidson's most successful and most challenging events of recent years – from the launch of the Sportster™ model in 1957 to the merger with AMF in 1969. Not to be missed is the three-screen video that tells the courageous story of all those involved in buying the company back from AMF in order to regain control of Harley-Davidson's destiny.
