Lucky no. 6
Lucky No. 6
Do you remember in 1981 when Ms. Pac-Man came out? Or in 1984 when Don Johnson became the 80’s household name Sonny Crockett? Pick almost anything in the 80’s and ask yourself, what do they have in common? The answer is…pastels. Never mind Sonny’s big bore S&W 645 .45 ACP, the off shore cigarette style racing boats, or the bow on Ms. Pac-Man’s head as she munched dots as long as you fed her quarters, the 80’s was all about pastels!
In 2019 Jeremy Seanor of LuckyStrike Designs in Wexford, PA took a brand new 2019 Harley Davidson Road Glide and brought the 80s to the 21st century. A total of 14 colors, mostly pastel as you can see, were used in the paint scheme. Some were thought out in advance, some added as after thoughts. Many of us do a project, step back and look at it and think to ourself, “self, maybe I should do this” and then we think twice and don’t do it. Well Jeremy doesn’t operate that way, he’s pretty much a fly by the seat of your pants kind of guy.
The bike hit the pavement in April of 2020 making its maiden voyage from Pennsylvania to Daytona Florida. After that Jeremy grabbed his crew of misfits and ventured off on the Degenerate Tour of 2020, going from PA to Texas to Virginia Beach and back to PA. Then within a few weeks it was off to Sturgis (with a lunch stop at Dakota Digital and yours truly), back to PA. And since that wasn’t enough saddle time, he decided to hit the Smokies in Tennessee, and while a person is down there, might as well ride the Head and the Tail of the Dragon. All in all, 19,000 miles on his Dakota Digital MLX-8414 gauges from April 2020 to November when the bike went into hibernation for the winter. Bring on 2021!
