Just watched it at my buddies house - he DVR'd it.
Very entertaining. Those were the days, no government reg's to deal with. From drawing to prototype to manufacturing as quickly as they could get it done. Really enjoyed the "time capsule" of watching the old bikes and cars too. Lot of drama - but that was probably the way things were back then.
Indian bikes were something and arguably better than the Harleys. I don't know about the show's law suit but historically many preferred the Indians over the HDs. They were more money and the company didn't have the ability to weather the storm as well as the HD company did. I've seen many documentaries on the rivalry and HD won out by outlasting the Indian brand with it's government/law enforcement contracts.
I found the Ford involvement interesting - When Edsel said "I see bankruptcy" he showed his hand. Good on HD for showing him the door. I remember the 3 wheel HDs driven by our local police. As a kid in the early 60's, I got a ride on one once from a cop my pops knew. Things were definitely different back then.
Thanks Basic, for the heads up on this show, I wouldn't have known it was done.
