A one-of-a-kind motorcycle customized for the legendary bands DEF LEPPARD and JOURNEY is being auctioned to benefit Cure Autism Now. Autographed by members of the bands and featuring the DEF LEPPARD and JOURNEY logos, this bike showcases the Arlen Ness flair for design with two of the greatest bands in rock and roll. Neal Schon of JOURNEY and Joe Elliott of DEF LEPPARD, both motorcycle enthusiasts, contacted Arlen Ness to create the bike.
"It was an honor and privilege to build a motorcycle for these rock icons. Neal Schon and Joe Elliott not only rock, they know how to design a motorcycle," said designer Cory Ness. "This bike not only rocks, it rolls! Someone is going to own a piece of history."
"The custom JOURNEY/DEF LEPPARD bike that Arlen Ness Motorcycles created is one bad-ass, wicked-mean bike with all the frills and best parts that money can buy. A lucky fan will own this bad boy in just a few weeks. Best of all, the money is going to Cure Autism Now," said Neal Schon of JOURNEY.
"I concur with Neal that this is not just a bike but an absolute work of art...some lucky person is going to own this bike and I will be forever jealous of the fact that it won’t be me!!!! But I will take some comfort in the knowledge that the money we raise will be going to such a worthy cause," said Joe Elliott of DEF LEPPARD.
Cure Autism Now is an organization of parents, clinicians and scientists dedicated to accelerating research to prevent, treat and cure autism — for individuals and families today, and for future generations.
