Harley-Davidson Cosmic Starship

Reported to have a $1 million price tag, this motorcycle is said to be the world’s first and only million dollar Harley. Bartels Harley-Davidson (H-D dealer to the stars) in Marina Del Rey, Calif., is going to unveil artist Jack Armstrong’s $1 million “Cosmic Starship” Harley-Davidson on October 21, 2010.

The artist is renowned for his unique painting style called Cosmic Extensionalism. His art combines extreme colors and textures, and you can see the words appearing magically throughout his paintings when seen from different angles.

“Andy Warhol would have loved it. He started with soup cans and worked up to Elizabeth Taylor!,” said Armstrong. “For me as an artist, Harley is James Dean, Brando, Elvis and Steve McQueen, and is more American than ice cream. To paint a million dollar Harley is legendary, like the bike!”

A small sign placed next to the Cosmic Starship motorcycle will read: “If you are not Lady GaGa, Scarlett Johansson or Sylvester Stallone DO NOT TOUCH THIS HARLEY!”

This is the only Harley artist Jack Armstrong will ever paint.
