The Alliance of Automotive Service Providers of New Jersey (AASP/NJ) is proud to announce that they will be auctioning a customized 2017 Harley Davidson Softail Slim motorcycle at the 40th annual NORTHEAST® Automotive Services Show. The bike will be displayed at the AASP/NJ booth, where two of the industry’s most talented artists will finish the customization on the show floor.
AASP/NJ Board member Dave Laganella of Peters Body & Fender (Oakland) originally came up with the idea to bring the motorcycle to the NORTHEAST Show.
“Every year, we have seen the show grow more and more. This year, I wanted to bring attendees to the show with something different. I know that members of our industry really like to watch cars and bikes get built, so I thought doing some type of build or customizing at the show would really bring in a crowd.”
Every single piece of metal that could be customized was sent off to industry legend Nub of Nub Grafix (Walden, NY) to give the bike a totally revamped custom paint look in support of NORTHEAST’s 40th anniversary. Jeff McDowell, AASP/NJ president, is excited to celebrate this milestone with his peers.
“The idea to customize a motorcycle in conjunction with NORTHEAST 2017, to me, symbolizes the continuous evolution of our flagship event. Last year, Nub and Javier Soto were on-site at NORTHEAST 2016, teaming up to do paint demonstrations at the Javier Designs booth throughout the weekend,” he continues.
“This year, we’ve elevated their presence to the next level, and I personally can’t wait to see what amazing things they are going to do together in creating this special edition bike. If you’re a motorcycle enthusiast or just a fan of terrific custom paint jobs, you won’t want to miss attending NORTHEAST 2017 to see the final result of this project.”
The Harley will be sold through a silent action that will take place throughout the weekend of the NORTHEAST show. More details will be announced over the next few months.
