Glenn Alan Bartels (AKA The Los Angeles Scooter Guru) teams up with Artist Jack Armstrong (called the “LAST WIZARD” by Andy Warhol) to unveil the world's first million dollar Harley-Davidson motorcycle. Bartels’ Harley-Davidson (Dealer to the Stars), hosted the celebrity filled event.
The official world press red carpet event drew standing room only and stopped traffic on Lincoln Blvd., as Armstrong’s “Cosmic Starship” landed from outer space. Actor Lorenzo Lamas ignited the 1250cc V-Rod engine and rode Armstrong’s creation into Bartels’ main showroom, where it will be on display for the remainder of the month. Event Photos
“What an incredible opportunity to be able to work with an artist of Jack’s caliber," explains Bartels. “I love Jack’s Cosmic Extensionalism applied to the Harley-Davidson® V-Rod™. This is the most futuristic motorcycle from The Motor Company, and Jack Armstrong has painted it to appear as if it has literally dropped down from outer space,” states Bartels.
