Harley-Davidson shipped 112,720 motorcycles in the first six months of 2010, according to the company’s public financial statement.
Harley-Davidson owners are a proud bunch who love their bikes. Ever since four young men played around with internal combustion engines in 1903, the Harley-Davidson company has grown steadily, according to its website. Possibly, Evel Knievel’s famous 1975 Wembley Stadium jump had something to do with it. Or maybe it was the Easy Rider movie craze of 1969 that brought the Harley-Davidson name to be synonymous with coolness. No matter the cause, Harley-Davidson is here to stay. Celebrating your love (or your loved one’s love) of a Harley-Davidson is easily done through scrapbooking.
Scrapbooks as Photo Pages
Using a scrapbook as a photo album makes sense. Unlike old photo albums where there was a little plastic sleeve for each photo and room for nothing else, scrapbooks today open a world of possibilities. Paste photographs of yourself and/or your friends on the pages along with silly or profound captions. You can find quotes about motorcycles online, print them out and paste them in strategic places around your photos.
Scrapbooks as Journals
Use your scrapbook to journal your journeys with your Harley-Davidson. Using the company colors of black, orange and white as the background pages, chronicle the exploits you’ve experienced on your Harley on typewritten pages and paste them on the scrapbook pages. Experiment with different fonts and colors. Use orange, yellow and black font colors against a white background, pasted onto an orange, black or white scrapbook page. Don’t forget photos, postcards and little souvenirs, such as event tickets and matchbooks.
Scrapbooks as a Collector’s Display Case
Collectors of Harley-Davidson embroidered patches will want a clever and original place to display them. Harley-Davidson patches come in a variety of colors, shapes and sizes. Everything from the company logo to fiery embellishment and eagles with golden wings are depicted on patches along with the Harley-Davidson logo. In addition to patches, this artwork is available as stickers and decals. A scrapbook is the right place to sort and display these tiny masterpieces, along with a caption as to where the patch was acquired and under what circumstances. Use hot glue or double-sided tape to fasten the patches to the heavy scrapbook paper.
