It’s pretty much a guarantee that if you find yourself at a Harley-Davidson bike rally that the odds of you seeing two of same bike are slim to none. Sure you may see multiple Road Kings and V-Rods but my bet is that their owners have customized them with a host of personal touches. What you need to understand is that Harley’s are not just a motorcycle, but a way of life for those that own them. They tend to define the person in the saddle and can give you some pretty good insight into that persons personality just by the way they’ve outfitted the bike. There are those out there however who take the art of bike building to the next level by creating their own special tribute to the famed motorcycle manufacturer. Take this all leather 3/4-scale bike that’s made entirely out of leather.
The bike was built by the Red Moon leather company in Japan and took 20 people more than two years to complete. It is currently on display at the Harley-Davidson Museum as part of their “Collection X: Weird, Wild Wonders of the Harley-Davidson Museum”. The exhibit runs through August 21st, 2011.
