The most beautiful motorcycles: Arlen Ness

It is curious that Ness did not sell a lot of his motorcycles, but kept them - today a small museum works on the basis of his custom workshop, where the most famous vehicles are exhibited. Today, Arlen's son, Corey Ness, leads the business. In addition to manufacturing customs, the Nesses sell motorcycle equipment, spare parts and ready-made Victory and Indian motorcycles.5877625a2fd7b3357d1.jpg1999.
