Some months ago, I believe that I may have sent you some photos of a year long project, the KISS Tribute Harley Davidson. The final completion was done two weeks before Sonic Boom came out (what a GREAT CD).
I took the bike to a bike show in Northern California, and it created quite a stir and KISS fans were thrilled to see it, to take pictures of it, and to stand around talking about the band, the tour and the new music. I will be taking it, weather permitting, to Vallejo Ca for a Halloween party at the Harley Dealership, my girlfriend putting on the Cat makeup like she did for a concert in August last year.
In brief, I got the idea when I saw on KOL the Australian bike and thought that we should have one on this side of the pond. After considerable thought, going through design ideas, I came up with the design idea and its proved to be a winner with the fans.
The 'real flames' represent the fire and flames at every concert; the front wheel is a Thunderstar, for the God of Thunder and the Star Child; the black paint is as dark as space for the Spaceman, and all extras have been removed, making it quick as a cat, for the CatMan. The KISS Army logo is on the front fender leading the way, as the fans have done from the beginning; and the license plate says ALIVE35, for the continuing tour. I have tickets for Sacramento and Oakland.
Its merely for my own personal pleasure, and to show it to people who love the band. If the bike show was any indication, wherever I take this, with KISS EVERYWHERE it seems now, it will be photographed and enjoyed by all.
