“The Eagle Soars Alone”

“The Eagle Soars Alone”

This day in Harley Davidson History marks the infamous “buy-back” by Willie G. and a group of investors.

In 1969 Harley-Davidson merged with the American Machine and Foundry Company (AMF). On February 26, 1981 thirteen Harley-Davidson senior executives sign a letter of intent to purchase Harley-Davidson Motor Company from AMF. On June 16, 1981, the buyback is official, and the phrase “The Eagle Soars Alone” becomes a rallying cry.
