Steel Ponies brings new friends to the fold

by User Not Found | Jul 25, 2012

My job affords me the opportunity to work with some pretty remarkable, community-minded companies and individuals. As Steel Ponies comes to a close (August 5) and we begin to report on the exciting successes, I am reminded of the great new friends we’ve made through this exhibition. In addition to attracting new audiences, we welcomed several corporate sponsors that we had not worked with previously like Indianapolis Southside Harley-Davidson.

In October 2012, Indianapolis Southside Harley-Davidson will celebrate its 65th Anniversary. Through the decades and four generations of the Schulteti Family, the company has operated out of two locations outfitting countless customers with beautiful motorcycles and gear. We are excited to have the opportunity to celebrate Southside’s anniversary with them in 2012 and appreciate their willingness to loan the Eiteljorg one of their bikes for our special exhibition – a 1929 Harley-Davidson Model JDH with a double-wide side car.  

The JDH, known as the Two-Cam Harley, was advertised as the “fastest model ever,” with a top speed of 85 to 100 mph. It was the first Harley-Davidson with the appearance of a modern motorcycle featuring larger fenders and gas tank. New for 1929 were twin headlights. In 1929, 10,000 74-cubic-inch JDs were produced, yet probably less than 100 of these very special H models were ever built. Come see this beautiful bike at the Eiteljorg before August 5!

Indianapolis Southside Harley-Davidson would like to extend a very special invitation – they hope to see you for their 4th Annual Night Before the Indy Mile Race Party on Friday, August 17 from 2 – 8 pm. Click for more information.
