LAS VEGAS, Nev. - Las Vegas Harley-Davidson has begun selling raffle tickets for a custom, one-of-a-kind Nevada Sesquicentennial-themed motorcycle signed by Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval.

The winner will be selected at the grand opening of Las Vegas Harley-Davidson’s new location on the Las Vegas Strip this fall. The 50,000 sq. ft. space will include a dealership, motorcycle rentals and a retail store. 

Only 2,000 raffle tickets will be sold, and each includes a commemorative chip. Tickets are $150 each with all proceeds to be donated to Nevada 150 Foundation, Inc., a nonprofit organization formed to support the Nevada Sesquicentennial Commission and official Nevada sesquicentennial events.

“This motorcycle is an incredible tribute to the State of Nevada,” said Sandoval. “It is beautiful enough to be in a museum, but it is meant to be ridden. It will be an incredible prize for the lucky winner. I want to thank Tim Cashman, Don Andress, and Las Vegas Harley-Davidson for not only creating this one-of-a-kind motorcycle, but also for their enthusiastic support of our state’s 150th celebration.”

The bike, a 2014 FLHX Harley-Davidson Street Glide, was created to celebrate the state’s 150th anniversary and sports a signature from Sandoval on the rear fender, according to the dealership. It features a custom two-tone Nevada blue paint job highlighted by the Battle Born Nevada 150th logo, the Great Seal of the State of Nevada and the Nevada State Flag.

The bike boasts chrome all around, upgraded stereo and speakers and a heavy breather kit and mufflers for extra horsepower and sound, organizers said.

Raffle tickets can be purchased at Las Vegas Harley-Davidson or at any Nevada 150 event where they are sold. Tickets will also be available at several events where the bike will be making appearances throughout Clark, Nye and Lincoln counties.
