Tyler Designs New Harley Bike
Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler has designed his first Harley Davidson motorbike. The rocker took time away from the group earlier this year (MAR06) to undergo throat surgery, but he kept busy during his recovery and came up with a new custom-made bike creation. The Steven Tyler Signature Series includes 10 limited-edition custom motorcycles, priced at $80,000 (GBP44,400) each, according to America's Life + Style magazine. The new bikes will launch on 20 October at Bruce Rossmeyer's Destination Daytona, the world's largest Harley Davidson dealership, located in Ormond Beach, Florida. Tyler says, "I love to ride. I love the freedom to have the wind blow through my hair, and I love the vibrations! They go into my backbone and remind me of being on stage. "Growing up in Yonkers, New York, I went to hardware stores and admired minibikes. When I discovered big bikes and found that they had a motor and you didn't have to pedal, I was hooked."
