- Year: 2001
- Model: Sportster 1200

- Painter: Ron Morris from Lee’s Summit, Missouri, with help from another airbrush artist.
- Color: Base color is a dark blue with prisms added to the paint to reflect various colors in direct sunlight. The flames are airbrushed in shades of blue to simulate butane flames. Many coats of clear coat finish out the project with an almost 3D appearance.

- Seat: Viberider Systems passenger seat. The strategically placed vibrator unit in the passenger seat synchronizes with the engine rpm anytime the switch is on and the bike is running. It isn’t me that attracts all the women to my back seat. LOL.
- Mirrors: Arlen Ness Flame

Other Information/Specs:
The bike is almost all standard Harley-Davidson parts, although they are from multiple models. Changes that are planned for the future include chrome plating the swingarm and having chrome billet wheels cut in a flame pattern.
