|Correcting “American History”|
|Commentary/Politics - Letters to the Editor|

I hope this publication will see fit to print a correction of a glaring error in the review of the Cycular motorycle exhibit. (See “Riding through American History on Two Wheels,” the River Cities’ Reader, Issue 289, September 20, 2000.
) I don’t know where the author got his information, but the Harley-Davidson Motor Company was never under Japanese ownership.
From roughly 1969 to 1981, Harley was a subsidiary of AMF (American Machine & Foundry), a U.S. manufacturer of sporting goods. Remember the bicycles and bowling balls? It was from this company that Harley-Davidson management bought itself back. This can be verified by any number of excellent books out there covering the history of the motor company.
Editor’s note: We stand corrected. The Reader regrets the error.
