Last week, Las Vegas Harley-Davidson broke ground on a full-line Harley dealership on the famed Las Vegas Strip. A custom Nevada Sesquicentennial-themed motorcycle celebrating the state’s 150th anniversary was revealed as part of the event, along with details on how one lucky rider will win it at the store’s grand opening.
At the groundbreaking event (get it?), Las Vegas Harley-Davidson President Don Andress and Vice President Timothy Cashman discussed the new location, and along with Governor of Nevada Brian Sandoval, unveiled a custom Nevada Sesquicentennial-themed motorcycle. Said Governor Sandoval, who signed the one-of-a-kind custom Harley Street Glide shortly after its reveal, "I am pleased to see one of our great Nevada companies incorporate the Sesquicentennial into their business strategy.”
Set to open this fall, Las Vegas Harley-Davidson® will be located right on the Las Vegas Strip at 5191 S. Las Vegas Blvd, 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. The Vegas Strip store will be the brand’s third Vegas location.
Harley enthusiasts have the opportunity to win the Nevada Sesquicentennial-themed motorcycle - the only design of its kind ever created. Soon, raffle tickets benefitting Nevada 150 Foundation, Inc. will be made available for purchase, with the winner to be selected at Las Vegas Harley-Davidson’s grand opening on the Strip this fall (details will be announced shortly). The bike will make appearances throughout the year at events and activities honoring Nevada’s Sesquicentennial celebration.
Nevada’s Sesquicentennial, the 150th anniversary of Nevada’s admission to the Union, will provide opportunities for celebration statewide to commemorate its history and build a foundation of cultural appreciation for generations to come. Nevada’s Sesquicentennial celebration will commence on Nevada Day 2013 and conclude with an expanded Nevada Day celebration October, 2014. For info, please visit www.nevada150.org.
