If you are a biker, this is your Nirvana. Your Mecca. If you are just interested in how things are made, step inside. The tour personnel couldn't have been more professional and courteous. The free tour takes about an hour.

A great tour. Fascinating how they press those great Harley styles out of a flat piece of sheet metal. Quality of work is impressive considering how customize each Harley is as it goes throug their assembly process. Well worth the time.
