Resweber, a member of the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Class of 1998, was a brilliant young racer who won four consecutive AMA Grand National Championships from 1958 to 1961 — a record that stood for four decades.

A true star of motorcycle racing, Resweber demonstrated enormous skill on a range of tracks, including half-miles, miles and road courses. He won 19 AMA nationals in a span of six seasons on a variety of circuits. Resweber’s career was cut short in its prime due to a racing accident in 1962. After his recovery, Resweber returned to work for Harley-Davidson, where he stayed until he retired in 1992.
