i passed by the marina crescent yesterday where kuwait bike show event was taking place - the event saw a big number of participants, some came from lebanon, others from saudi arabia, quite an impressive show-up! that was probably the biggest harley davidson gathering i've ever seen!
hence, the challenge in writing this post :) the number of bikes was colossal and showing every machine is impossible, so i decided to pick three awesome bikes and dwell on the details for a change.
i dubbed the first bike (above) "pistols", the owner is simply crazy - beside having his portrait emerging from the tank, he basically changed the pedals into pistols and mounted a double-barrel shotgun by the rear wheel! dude, are you going for war!
i gave the second bike the nickname "absolut" as the maker mounted an absolut vodka bottle on the tank! that might look a bit weird, but the real surprise is that the absolut bike comes from saudi arabia!! we've deleted the details on the number plate, just in case, but dude you've got balls!!!
this bike can drive to a speed of 180 km/h according to the owner's friend, i was curious though how can one tell as the machine is not fitted with a speedometer, well it seems that they bench-marked against a speeding car, smart! the bike looks low and almost touches the ground, never-mind, it has a hydraulic system that lifts it 5 inches high!
well, we kept the best for last, we called this awesome bike "skeleton" - the machine is a tale from the crypt and the owner has worked on it for a full year! the outcome is undeniably a work of art! look at the details of this bike, it is unbelievable! the tank's ribs are surreal, the end-bars are mounted with skeleton hands, skulls are painted on the body - the tail is simply frightening, the eyes are lit when the rider hits the brakes! as for the helmet, it is beautifully done as spiky skull! you sure don't want to mess with this rider!
great job marina mall and thanks to adel bou chebel for the tour despite your busy schedule, you really made my day!
