I never really thought HD put anywhere near enough into the race department.

"Racing improves the breed".

Don't know who said that, but it's true.

HD was a bigger company than Honda in 1959 when Honda first went racing. 10 years later you couldn't win a World Championship unless you rode one. And that year they introduced their 750 4.

I think it was very short sighted of Harley to outsource their research and development as well as their race department.

Had AMF not come along and saved their bacon in 69 they would have sunk beneath the waves like Indian.
