Our January 2017 cover model is Katy from Edwardsville, Kansas. She is a bartender and dancer, and one day hopes to own her own horse stables. In her spare time Katy enjoys riding horses and playing poker. Katy told us her turn-ons are “A good smile!” On the flipside, she admits that chewing (tobacco) is a big turnoff. When asked to describe her personality, Katy said “I’m a little shy at first, but a very happy, easygoing, fun person.” She’s also been told that her best attribute is her smile.

Also, make sure to check out the behind the scenes photos and video from our January 2017 cover shoot, as well as the specs and photos of this awesome 1917 Harley-Davidson Model B, which is owned by Mark Kozak.

We also want to thank Cilla and Jim (owners), Jenny (hair), and Alyssa (makeup) at Chop Tops – A Hair Company in Westport for the incredible job they did to help transform Katy into a beautiful1917-era pinup model. Also make sure to check out our Chop Tops Business Review to find out more about this one-of-a-kind hair salon!
