While many of the festivities, concerts and rides from Milwaukee are over now, the rest of this week marks the official 110th Anniversary of Harley-Davidson, who are, without a doubt, one of the most iconic American companies in existence.
At LeatherUp, our staff rides a great number of bikes. Cafe Racers. 500cc street racers. And yes, even a Gold Wing is in the mix, along with two Italian-looking scooters. The point is: we don’t all ride Harley’s, and we are biased towards them…but we definitely know when its time to celebrate a good thing. And the American motorcycle culture and business is alive and well today because Harley-Davidson was able to survive the Great Depression — a period in time that saw the demise of almost every single American motorcycle company.
It’s with that spirit and pride that we offer our dedicated customers our latest sales event: LeatherUp’s Extended Labor Day Sale!
We wanted to honor not just our huge, loyal customer base — of which we are eternally and daily grateful to for our own jobs — but also honor the American motorcycle company that has, over the course of 110 years, given rise to an entire market and industry in the 50 states that has given all of us, no matter the rider or his/her machine, a better, two-wheeled world.
It’s scary to think about what motorcycle culture would be like here without Harley and Davidson. There would have been none of the crazy 50’s biker culture. No Hell’s Angels. Hell, our DVRs wouldn’t have episodes of Sons of Anarchy on them. That is why we are celebrating Harley’s 110 year anniversary with not just Harley-Davidson accessories, but with almost everything in our inventory as well. Thousands and thousands of items in our online store (as well as Canada’s store at LeatherUp.ca) are marked 10% off or more, and now through Sunday (9/8/2013) you can use the code “LDWEEK” and get even bigger savings.
The riding season for many will be coming to an end in the next few months, so now is the perfect time to get the full-face helmet you’ll need for winter, the jacket you’ll need for fall, and the accessories you’ll need for all your fall and wintering tinkering while your bike sits on a stand, lonely and waiting for the calls of spring.
We’d again like to thank all of our customers for keeping us in business, and giving all of us a reason to really celebrate this Labor Day, and we’d like to offer a massive tip of the
hat helmet to the Harley-Davidson American V-Twin, which has made all of this possible.
