Willie G. Davidson Retires

Willie G. Davidson Retires

Willie G. Davidson-- famed moto scion and one of the 13 Harley-Davidson executives to buy back the company from the evil clutches of AMF in 1981-- announced his retirement after serving as a designer for nearly half a century.

Davidson's design studio produced bikes including the Super Glide, Low Rider, Heritage Softail Classic, Fat Boy, V-Rod and Street Glide, and has been more recently known for the Dark Custom lineup.

I had the honour of meeting Willie G. Davidson many times at several press meetings and events. He was always funny, interested and the most enthusiastic man I ever met when it comes to Harley-Davidson Motorcycles. Willie G. will remain a brand ambassador and act as the Chief Styling Officer Emeritus in the Special Design Projects division.
