Harley-Davidson, Inc. (H-D, or simply Harley) is an American motorcycle manufacturer headquartered in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, United States. Founded in 1903, it is one of two major American motorcycle manufacturers to survive the Great Depression along with its historical rival, Indian Motorcycles. The company has survived numerous ownership arrangements, subsidiary arrangements, periods of poor economic health and product quality, and intense global competition to become one of the world’s largest motorcycle manufacturers and an iconic brand widely known for its loyal following. There are owner clubs and events worldwide, as well as a company-sponsored, brand-focused museum.

Harley-Davidson is noted for a style of customization that gave rise to the chopper motorcycle style. The company traditionally marketed heavyweight, air-cooled cruiser motorcycles with engine displacements greater than 700 cc, but it has broadened its offerings to include more contemporary VRSC (2002) and middle-weight Street (2015) platforms.

Treasure Island (Russian: Остров Сокровищ) is a Soviet, two-part, adventure comedy television film based on the 1883 novel with the same name by Robert Louis Stevenson. It was created by order of the USSR’s state television company by the studio Kievnauchfilm.

The film is mostly traditional animation with some live action sequences, which are largely but not entirely separate.

The first part, Captain Flint’s Map, aired in 1986 and the second, Captain Flint’s Treasure, in 1988, after which they were always shown together. The film attained a cult classic status almost immediately after release and has won the following awards: Grand Prize in Minsk (1987); Grand Prize in Kyev (1989); 1st Prize on International Cinema Festival of Television films in Czechoslovakia.
