STORY OF THE BOMBER BIKE™

Santa Cruz Harley-Davidson and Canepa Design have teamed up to create a series of bikes featuring unique tank art. These genuine Harley-Davidson Fat Boy® motorcycles are adorned with World War II, pin-up style art, and an otherwise minimalist, almost military, style.

The genesis of the Bomber Bike series is World War II bomber nose art and the post World War II "bob job" motorcycle. GIs back from the war were, in many ways, crafting the first true customs. Stripping the bikes to bare minimum, they gained speed and individuality. Some went as far as taking the crude bomber nose art and recreated it on their tanks. Regardless of their particular customization, they inevitably created a bike that had an aggressive, well-ridden personae. Picking up where this genre left off, designers and tacticians Bruce Canepa and Mike James, teamed with accomplished air brush artist Dawne Holmes to create a fresh form of rolling art.
