If you’re a fan of Marvel comics, and motorcycles, you’re in for a treat during the Comic-con in Sydney Australia, this year. Harley-Davidson (H-D) and Marvel have teamed up to produce a series of 25 one-off motorcycles that each represent a character from the Marvel comics universe.
Created by H-D dealers across Australia and New Zealand, each custom cruiser represents a character from Marvel comics, notably drawing on the recent success of movies like “Guardians of the Galaxy”, “Captain America” and “The Avengers”. This unique collaboration of custom Harleys celebrates Marvel’s 75th anniversary.
The bikes are drawn from across H-D’s range of bikes, with 16 characters in total represented in various motorcycle forms. While superheroes riding motorcycles are not a new thing in the Marvel universe, much of the recent interest in superhero motorcycles was generated by Captain America riding one in the movies.
First of these is a Captain America themed Street Glide Special – which will be on display at the comics convention till 15 September – intended to inspire H-D dealers in Australia and New Zealand for their own custom builds. “The spirit of freedom is alive and thriving in the Harley-Davidson Street Glide Special. Like Captain America, it leads from the front with strength, power and endurance, enabling you to venture to new worlds and beyond,” said H-D spokesperson David Turney.
