Part 2 of 2: My guest will be Steve Piehl who was given a challenging assignment at Harley-Davidson Inc. when the company was fighting for its survival. In the fall of 1982, he was told to organize a group for Harley bike owners who would support their passion for the brand and, hopefully, bring more riders into the fold.
At the time, Piehl thought that someday the Harley Owners Group would have tens of thousands of members nationwide. He never imagined that, today, it would have nearly a million members in dozens of countries. After 35 years of working for the Motor Company Steve finally retired. He loves to ride and was even inducted into the Sturgis Motorcycle Hall of Fame. Learn more about the Man behind the mission on the Inside Scoop by Spitfire!
Special Guests: Stephen “Doc” Hopkins, Owner of Doc’s Harley Davidson, Vintage Motorcycle Enthusiast/Collector
Ask any motorcycle enthusiast in the Midwest to name their favorite Harley Davidson Dealer, and undoubtedly “Doc’s Harley Davidson” is one of the first on the list. Along with owning an incredibly successful franchise of the Motor Company, our guest this week is a passionate vintage motorcycle enthusiast who is all about promoting and preserving the two-wheeled history of both American and overseas manufacturers. Doc is well known throughout the vintage motorcycle world for his impressive collection of vintage machines, and fantastic adventures in racing, restoring, customizing, and promoting old bikes. Doc is the caretaker of such machines as the “Timeline Bike,” which is a representation of every type of engine produced by Harley Davidson set in one frame, as well as the famous “Road Dog” built by “Wild Bill” Gelbke!

In 1936, Harley Davidson began a new era in their history with the introduction of the overhead valve v-twin model known as the Knucklehead. Prior to this motor introduction, Harley Davidson was primarily known for its sidevalve and F-Head powerplants that combined both overhead and sidevalve technology. The Knucklehead marked the first production run of an entirely OHV model and would forever turn the course of design for the Milwaukee-based company. The Harley Davidson Knucklehead was produced for 11 years, from 1936-1947 and has remained as one of the most desired collector’s pieces for decades now. Of these years, the models produced prior to World War II have remained as the king when it comes to value and rarity.
