Sons of Anakin

I liked the TV show Sons of Anarchy before it became mainstream (now boasting over 5.5 million fans per episode).

I also rode a Harley well before the corporate chopper craze and shows like 'American Choppers' (starring Tweedledee and Tweedledum) made it uber popular. Thank God the recession took care of most (if not all) of the pretenders.

That being said, I'm somewhat intrigued to learn that fans of the show, will soon be able to ride replica SOA bikes, thanks to a deal with Bartels’ Harley-Davidson.

This is a pic of Tigs bike, a character in the show.

This is what they can expect. This Dyna was made by Chandler Harley-Davidson to resemble said SOA bike. There are too many differences to list, so I won't. Most 'fans' and those who ride on weekends will assume they're the same because of the faring. They'd be wrong.

OK, rant over. Bartel's will pump out 100 limited edition bikes that will sell for $25K USD. Yep you're paying an extra $5k - $7k for a fairing, sticker and name-plate (some would say that's the case with Harley's anyway).

The new SOA bikes will first go on sale in August in conjunction with the world’s largest motorcycle rally in Sturgis, South Dakota, just before the show’s fifth season premiere.

Not a fan of the show, well maybe this is more your style. Luke, I'm a biker!
