How Harley-Davidson has kept true to its Milwaukee roots throughout its 116-year (and growing) history

It’s a Milwaukee brand that has created an international culture — Harley Davidson Motorcycles.

It all began in Milwaukee, and the building that served at the company’s main production plant is still in use today, even though it no longer churns out bikes.

Tag along on our tour of the former Harley headquarters on Juneau Ave. on this episode of Urban Spelunking.

In this podcast, Bobby and I speak with Bill Jackson, manager of archives and heritage services at the Harley-Davidson Museum.

He shows us around the busy Harley site, which includes marketing, product development, training, support, dealer services and more.

Jackson also explains how the company has kept true to its Milwaukee roots throughout its 116-year (and growing) history.
