harley-davidson has launched the ‘art of custom’ fuel tank design competition in collaboration with some of the best artists across the globe - the campaign was launched in miami's wynwood art district and a number of renowned artists like lebo and terry bradely created a selection of tank designs that you can see in the following website http://tankwall.harley-davidson.com/site/index?country=ZZ.
the tank wall website will also showcase some of the most iconic designs from the past century including the classic 1971 willie g. davidson designed ‘fx super glide’ and the 2008 ‘cross bones’ which formed the basis for the motorcycle ridden by captain america in the 2011 hollywood film.
participants from the middle east and north africa will participate in a regional draw to win a credit value of $5000, $2000 or $500 to spend at a local harley-davidson dealership in addition to a painted fuel tank as souvenir for the first and second winners.
but that's not all for the mena region participants - if entries receive enough online votes to make it to the top 50 designs, they will go to a panel of judges, including lebo and terry bradley who will cut the down the entries to the final 10 - the public can then vote to select the winner who will get the chance to visit the home of harley-davidson in milwaukee and see his bespoke design re-created on his very own mechanical masterpiece; the harley-davidson sportster - two runner-ups will have tanks customized with their design and displayed at the famous harley-davidson museum.
i think this is an awesome opportunity for all hogs and creative people to get artistic and show their talent whilst getting inspired by this fantastic brand - closing date for entries is monday april 30th 2012.
