A Harley Davidson hillclimber 1000 cc V-Twin 1928

Long before Supercross or Superbike was king,
the ultimate battleground for motorcycles in the U.S. 
was hillclimb racing:one rider, one machine in 
an all-out run to conquer a steep, gnarly hill.

Back in the sport’s heyday in the 1920s and ’30s, the largest factories,
Harley-Davidson, Excelsior and Indian, spared no expense to build
 some of the trickest factory racers anyone had ever seen.

Victories on the hills meant sales on the showroom floor, 
so it should come as no surprise that when Harley decided 
to build its first true factory hillclimber, 
the result was something special.
