Some of the company’s most historic black bikers include William B. Johnson, who was the first African-American Harley dealer; Bessie Stringfield, who was the first black woman to ride solo across the country; and Benny Hardy, who was an influential motorcycle club leader. They were all a part of what the company calls the Iron Elite; a list of African-American motorcycle riding legends.
