"Captain America makes the perfect marketing partner for Harley-Davidson as he truly embodies the iconic, heroic and American aspects of our brand," said Dino Bernacchi, Harley-Davidson's director of Marketing Communications. "Both Captain America and our motorcycles are great symbols of freedom."
True to history, about 90,000 of Harley-Davidson's "Liberator" motorcycles were sent overseas to support the troops in World War II.
All in all, I cannot wait to see this movie! The more we hear about the details, the more I want to see it! I'll be in line opening night...and then I will need a replica of this bike, at least in miniature. Though I think I'd seriously sell my car and take to the road for this! How about you?
*Disclaimer: I have never actually ridden a motorcycle, but I'd totally ride this one everywhere!
