Nick Anglada, of Nick Anglada Originals, Teams up with Yamaha, Ken Griffey Jr., Willie Mays, and Hank Aaron to auction off a custom sport bike for the Boys & Girls Clubs of America

Daytona, FL (Dec. 8, 2009)—Nick Anglada Originals (www.nickangladaoriginals.com) unveiled a custom-built baseball-themed Star Raider to many anxious fans last Friday at 1:30 p.m. in the Yamaha booth at the Cycle World International Motorcycle Show in Long Beach, California.

“This motorcycle represents a lot of committed people coming together and making a difference for the children served by the Boys & Girls Clubs of America,” said Nick Anglada, owner of Nick Anglada Originals. “I truly enjoyed working with Ken Griffey Jr. and the Ken Griffey Jr. Family Foundation. Ken really pulled through for the kids he cares about and even brought in two of his legendary baseball colleagues to help the cause.”

Designed, fabricated, and painted in seven days, the motorcycle includes an extremely aesthetic paint job that reflects the passion shared by most American's of baseball. The body work by Gator Customs (www.gatorcustoms.net), includes patented Gator Glass on the coil covers and on the custom gas tank that houses six enclosed, signed baseballs from Ken Griffey Jr., Willie Mays and Hank Aaron. Their work is also also located on the molded bodywork on the rear fender and over the custom paint with the Boys & Girls Clubs of America logo.

Other sponsors that helped make this bike possible include:

  • LeoVince Exhaust
  • Tanury Industries, which provided the vaporized titanium PVD coating for all the chrome
  • Star Accessories, which provided the wheels and all the billet engine cover accessories
  • Dunlop Tires

About Nick Anglada Originals

Nick Anglada Originals is the premier custom sport bike and cruiser builder in the United States. His creations have appeared on multiple magazine covers, won countless awards, and have drawn accolades from the enthusiast public and the media alike.

Nick Anglada’s customizing viewpoint is simple. Customizing is a work of art, but ultimately it must be built in harmony with the customer’s revelation.

When Nick’s customer sees his or her bike for the first time, his intention is for them to be filled with an overwhelming emotion eliciting a total epiphany. This is why Nick refers to his customer’s revelation, instead of his or her vision. His customers come to him because more is no longer enough. They demand absolute sovereignty; absolute independence from every single being around them. Their custom motorcycle must encapsulate that need in every respect while ultimately transporting the experience of motorcycling to an entirely new level. If Nick builds with an eye on their needs, while carefully overseeing the various elements that drive his creative process, the custom build will not only speak to the eyes, it will speak to the soul.

Barker’s ‘Famous’ Custom CBR Travels to Cycle World Daytona

Travis Barker’s Famous Stars and Straps Sport Bike Left the Motorcycle Hall of Fame and is Now Calling Cycle World of Daytona ‘Home’

(Daytona Beach, FL) – Only a celebrity like Travis Barker, drummer of Blink 182, could have accomplished an unprecedented autograph session for his custom Nick Anglada Original’s sport bike like he did in 2008. His custom Honda CBR unveiling was the largest in SEMA history, but it didn’t stop there. After the unveil, the custom motorcycle made its debut on 2 Wheel Tuner Magazine’s cover in May of 2008 then was put on display at the Motorcycle Hall of Fame in Pickerington, Ohio.

The bike had been on display at the Hall of Fame ever since, but that all changed this month when the Famous Stars and Straps sport bike was moved to be on exhibit at Cycle World of Daytona in Daytona Beach, Florida. Builder of the bike, Nick Anglada of Nick Anglada Originals, also currently works out of Cycle World where many other of his works of ‘motorcycle art’ are on display. Travis’s sport bike will be showing on site there until November 23rd, 2009.

Barker’s motorcycle was modeled after one of his many Cadillac’s that he owns. A gleaming green finish along with logos of Famous Stars and Straps, Barker’s clothing and accessories line, was incorporated into the bike’s overall appearance.

For more information on this and any other custom motorcycles by Nick Anglada Originals, please visit Nick Anglada’s website at www.NickAngladaOriginals.com.
