2001 Arlen Ness Metro Flier with Sidecar

Arlen Ness was the world’s foremost motorcycle customizer. He has done more for the business of customizing motorcycles than any other person or company in existence. Starting out of his garage in the 1960’s with money he earned as a semi-professional bowler, Arlen bought his first Harley. Armed with no more than a spray gun and a dream, he created his first chopper. That chopper launched a customizing career that in turn helped launch an entire industry. Today, Arlen Ness Motorcycles is an international brand sold in every continent of the world.

Ness, who’s often credited with helping create the chopper and showbike industry, was inducted into the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame in 1992. Sturgis Motorcycle Museum and Hall of Fame Executive Director Myrick Robbins has called Arlen “…the ‘Godfather’ of the custom bike movement. No one has done more to influence the look of what a custom motorcycle is.”

The Metro Flier represents the Early Days of Motorcycles through the eyes of Arlen Ness. It’s Flat Tank retro look, Rigid Frame and the Custom Sidecar Outfit remind us of “Days Gone By”. Springer Front Forks and a Sprung Seat soften the ride. Custom Paint, Upholstery and features throughout! The New 1200s starts quickly and provides that famous Harley-Davidson rumble. Everything on the Metro Flyer was New when built.
