Las Vegas Harley-Davidson and Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino Celebrate Nevada’s 150th Anniversary
July 9, 2014 by VegasNews.com
Throughout the month of July, Las Vegas Harley-Davidson and Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino are joining forces to celebrate Nevada’s 150th anniversary by displaying a custom, Sesquicentennial-themed Harley-Davidson in the resort.
The one-of-a-kind bike, along with information about Nevada’s Sesquicentennial, will be displayed on the casino floor. Additionally, those looking for a chance to win the bike will be able to purchase raffle tickets, priced at $150 each, on Saturday through Thursday from 6 p.m. until midnight throughout July.
A total of 2,000 tickets are available with all proceeds being donated to Nevada 150 Foundation, Inc., a non-profit organization formed to support the Nevada Sesquicentennial Commission and official Nevada Sesquicentennial Events.
Signed by Governor of Nevada Brian Sandoval, the bike, a 2014 FLHX Harley-Davidson Street Glide, was built from the ground up and 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 also boasts chrome all around, upgraded stereo and speakers and a heavy breather kit and mufflers for extra horsepower and sound.
“This motorcycle is an incredible tribute to the State of Nevada,” said Governor Brian 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.”
The winner will be selected at the grand opening of Las Vegas Harley-Davidson’s new location this fall, which will be located on the Las Vegas Strip at 5191 S. Las Vegas Boulevard, just steps from the famed Welcome to Las Vegas sign. The 50,000 square-foot space will feature a dealership, motorcycle rentals and a retail store.
