Plot Synopsis

HARLEY AND THE DAVIDSONS is a three-night event series that tells the story of young men -- best friends and brothers -- coming of age and dealing with rivalries, expectations of parents, business competitors and life and death on the race track. In Milwaukee at the turn of the 20th century, brothers Walter and Arthur Davidson and their friend Bill Harley launch a motorcycle company that eventually becomes an iconic brand and an enduring symbol of Americana. But the road to success was not exactly smooth -- filled with innumerable obstacles, ruthless competitors and extraordinary risks. Together these three young men, the sons of blue-collar immigrants, gave everything they had to ensure the survival of the company they founded. Each of these men faced very different challenges, but it was the motorcycle that united their dreams and ambitions. For Walter Davidson, the venture was a chance to escape from the confines of society -- to ignore the rules and build a bike that could go anywhere and ride hard. For Arthur Davidson, it was an opportunity to finally make good on his name. And for Bill Harley, the bike gave him hope to break free from his overbearing parents and apply his talent as an engineer. This series reveals how the founders continued to grow its loyal following like no other competitor -- whether it was securing the American Army contract and teaching riders how to make repairs on the field to embracing boisterous motorcycle clubs across the nation. They would eventually channel all their resources with their biggest risk yet -- creating the world's first superbike, a state-of-the-art racing machine for the masses. But the founders also faced an underlying moral question -- just how much would they risk to become successful?
