OUTSIDE SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- For the deep-pocketed, "Easy Rider" types, a one-of-a-kind motorcycle owned by famed racer Mike Avila is on display at in Dublin, Calif. and available for a cool $95K.
As one Arlen Ness sales associate described: It's "rolling art at its finest."
All hand-built, with hand-shaped metal construction and no visible welds, seams or fasteners, the wine-red bagger took first place as "America's Most Beautiful Motorcycle" at the Grand National Roadster Show in 2010.
Dubbed "Crazy Horse," it has a price tag of $94,995.
The 2008 motorcycle was designed and built by Avila, along with top designers Arlen Ness, Greg Westbury, Carl Brouhard and "Solis," (that's his first name; no one knows his last name) and painted by Mazz Enterprises in colors "Candy Brandy Wine" and "Candy Red Flake."
And Avila can attest to the bike's brawn, as he gave it a test ride from California to the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, held annually in South Dakota.
"The bike has air ride on the back and is ready to ride," Avila wrote of his custom creation.
Crazy Horse even scored a spread in Baggers Magazine: http://www.baggersmag.com/features/1006_hrbp_2008_ness_special_construction/viewall.html
Biker buffs who can't afford to buy, can still look -- Crazy Horse can be viewed seven days a week at the Arlen Ness showroom/museum on Dublin Boulevard.
