    Description

    Mötley Crüe - Mick Mars and Nikki Sixx Owned and Used Harley Davidson Motorcycle (Harley-Davidson, 1976). Back in the 1980s, Mötley Crüe members Tommy Lee and Nikki Sixx started hanging out and riding motorcycles with the infamous Hell's Angels. The motorcycle is a 1976 Harley FLH but the bike was customized for Sixx by the lead mechanic of Hell's Angels, in Los Angeles, to the tune of $50,000+, so it can't be compared to just any 1976 FLH! Nikki officially owned it from about 1989 to 1995 and rode it quite a bit throughout that time span. Nikki then sold it to bandmate Mick Mars in 1995 even though Mick was using it before then. In fact, the whole band took their bikes to Sturgis, South Dakota for the Harley Bike Rally in 1994 where they played on August 12, 1994 at Buffalo Chip Camp Ground, riding their bikes into the arena!
    As for the motorcycle itself, it is a 1976 FLH with an S&S Super E turbo jet carb, kick and electric start, performance machine braking system, dual front disc brakes, single disc back brake, chain drive, 4-speed transmission, lowered frame, dual gas tanks, custom flame paint job, leather seats with flames, extra P-pad passenger seat that easily removes/attaches to ride single or double, Mötley Crüe "Dr. Feelgood" gold emblem attached to tank, and Sunset Strip Tattoo sticker placed on it by Nikki Sixx, after riding this bike there to get one of his tattoos. The motorcycle runs well and is very loud; included are photocopies of paperwork owned by Mick Mars, related to the bike, including the Mars title, the Mars drivers license, the Mars registration cards, transfer of title, and transfer and reassignment form. Also included are two P-pad seats, each signed by Nikki Sixx, as well as a COA signed by him, that describes in great detail the origin and ownership of this motorcycle as it relates to Sixx and Mars.
