WISN News Goes On Assignment with Willie G. Davidson
Everyone Different…Everyone Unforgettable..
That’s the theme of the upcoming Harley Davidson 110th… arguably…no one will have more fun at the big event than a very proud grandson of one of the founders—none other than Willie G. Davidson!
“Pick a favorite bike,” WISN 12 News’ Kathy Mykleby asked Davidson during a recent On Assignment interview.
“Oh, where do I go?” He said.
Some 350 models are stacked up, strapped in, tucked away in the back room of the expansive Harley-Davidson Museum, commemorating 11 decades of making motor cycle magic. The 5-year-old museum is all decked out for the big 110th party now.
“Why is it Harley-Davidson and not Davidson-Harley?” Mykleby asked.
“The research doesn’t go back that far, because all those guys were in this little shack behind my great grandfather’s house trying to put together this bicycle-looking thing with a small engine, and someone took a paintbrush and put it on the door,” Davidson said.
“Really? So it was just that simple? The flip of a coin maybe, or who knows?” Mykleby asked.
“It wasn’t a corporate meeting of any sort,” Davidson said.
