Harley-Davidson: "Coming Home"

Documents the story of the 95th anniversary celebration of Harley-Davidson Motor Company, and the gathering of over 100,000 Harley-Davidson enthusiasts in Milwaukee, the birthplace in 1903 of the world's most famous motorcycle company. The events surrounding the celebration provided several days of excitement in Milwaukee, and also raised a significant sum for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Project includes early photos and a videotape of the 1998 reunion entitled Coming Home.
