WHEN DID AMF BUY HARLEY-DAVIDSON?

In the year of 1969, the AMF corporation (American Machine and Foundry) originally took over production of Harley-Davidson motorcycles. Prior to the acquisition of Harley-Davidson, AMF was a manufacturing company of bowling equipment, tennis rackets, and other recreational items. AMF basically tossed the then-financially shaky Harley-Davidson a financial life preserver, and maintained ownership of the motorcycle company for a dozen years.

WHAT HAPPENED IN THE HARLEY-DAVIDSON’S AMF YEARS?

During the ’70s, with the American economy in a recession, Japanese bikes like Yamaha and Honda were proving to be very popular with consumers. This created significant tension within the company, which led to the company coming back to its original owners in the 1980’s.

In February 1981, a group of Harley-Davidson senior executives purchased Harley-Davidson from AMF. Driven by passion and a true belief in the brand, the executives were able to rescue the company from debt.

While AMF’s arrival did save Harley-Davidson from impending bankruptcy, the AMF years were arguably the most not-so-fond period in Harley-Davidson’s history. While there were, and still are plenty of fans of the AMF-era Harleys, there were also lots of Harley purists who weren’t too thrilled with the whole idea of a sporting goods manufacturer producing the in American motorcycle.
