To most motorcyclists, the term Knucklehead Bobber conjures the original and the best of motorcycle customizing. And here's a one-off custom Knucklehead Bobber from the National Motorcycle Museum in Anamosa, Iowa you can win!
Solo seats, cut rear fenders. Skinny front tires on 21-inch rims. A little chrome and some pipes. This is the cleaner, lighter motorcycle style some motorcyclists wanted in the 1950s. And here's a 21st Century Bobber built around a brand new 93ci S&S Knucklehead motor with all the modern amenities that make it quick and dependable, a machine you can ride every day.
Each year the National Motorcycle Museum works with J&P Cycles Custom Bike Builder Kody Wisner to build a custom bike to give away as a fund-raiser, and you could be the lucky person. You can enter by donating online at www.nationalmcmuseum.org. Entries are $5 each or six for $25 and can also be ordered from the National Motorcycle Museum at PO Box 405, Anamosa, IA 52205 or by calling 319-462-3925. Every entry helps the Museum with its current move to a new structure to be bigger and better!
"This is an exciting year for the National Motorcycle Museum," said John Parham, president of the Museum's Board of Directors. "As the Museum expansion project comes together, we are expecting our foot traffic to double, and this year's bike will be seen by visitors far and wide, so we really wanted to do a powerful bike with exquisite detail. I think we did that! Again this year, our sponsors surprised us by stepping up to the plate to participate. We couldn't do it without them."
This is a high tech bike with vintage Knucklehead power and cool retro styling that will be hard to ignore on the streets. Wisner is a master at styling a bike, blending components and this bike is sure to please its owner. Make sure you purchase your entries before
December 30, 2010, the date of the winner is selected.
