Harley-Davidson Rumbles into 'Ford Country' for the 'Made In America' Tour

13 July 2000

    DEARBORN, Mich. - Nearly 700 H.O.G(R) members are rumbling into "Ford 
country" in the last stop of the H.O.G(R) "Made in America" tour for summer fun 
and activities in Dearborn on July 14.

    The tour -- "Planes, Harleys, and Automobiles" -- will visit Greenfield
Village, Henry Ford Museum, Spirit of Ford and the IMAX theater in Dearborn.
H.O.G(R) members will kick-off the events with a parade of Harley-Davidson(R)
motorcycles through "Ford country," followed by welcoming ceremonies in front
of the Spirit of Ford.  The remainder of the day will include displays of
classic cars, concept vehicles, limited edition vehicles and memorabilia of
the Harley-Davidson Motor Company and Ford Motor Company partnership.

    Ford and Harley-Davidson last year formed a business alliance to develop
limited edition products such as the 2000 Harley-Davidson F-150 SuperCab pick-
up truck.

    "The partnership between Ford and Harley-Davidson is a natural -- two
strong brands joining forces to create the toughest truck on the road.
Today's event celebrates the common history of two American legends and we're
proud to be the host of the H.O.G(R) 'Made in America' tour," said Jim
O'Connor, president, Ford Division.

    The alliance provides the opportunity for the two companies to jointly
develop and market exciting products, like the limited edition Harley-Davidson
F-150 and a line of unique automotive accessories and apparel, available
through Ford and Harley-Davidson dealerships.  The alliance also will include 
celebrations of each company's centennial in 2003.
