HARLEY-DAVIDSON LAUNCHES ICE COLD MODEL
03 February 2009 - Harley-Davidson Inc.
Sculpture outside H-D museum will only be present only until warmer weather returns!
With the cold weather moving in quickly, Harley-Davidson took a different tack for its latest offering. It brought in 1988 Olympian Tom Queoff, the captain of the USA Snow Sculpting team, to build the only bike suited for freezing conditions – the ice cold Harley-Davidson XR1200!
Tom Queoff worked only with hand tools over three days in freezing temperatures to carve the giant XR 1200 sculpture, which is positioned outside the new Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee, USA.
Current visitors to the Harley-Davidson Museum can learn more about the inspiration behind the New XR 1200, with a special display featuring the bike and its forefather, the legendary XR 750 Flat Track Racing motorcycle.
The ice cold XR1200 will be present only until warmer weather returns!
