We here at Sailor Jerry couldn’t be more stoked about our new partnership with the legendary Harley-Davidson. Harleys, of course, are an American icon, and for us, the artwork of our own Norman ‘Sailor Jerry’ Collins is iconic as well. So for us to be able to partner on a whole slew of new stuff — from events to custom bikes — is both an honor and a reason to get really creative with some of our favorite artists working right now.
That’s why, this summer, all over America, we’re touring 22 Harleys, each one a one-of-a-kind bike painted by our H-D/Sailor Jerry artist collaborators. In the mix are Jonathan Valena aka JonBoy, Oliver Peck, Megan Massacre, Alexander Mijares, Michael “BuckWild” Ramirez, L’Amour Supreme, and members of the Harley-Davidson Styling Team. Collectively, they’ve brought their talent to three different types of bikes: 2017 Harley-Davidson Iron 883s, 2017 Harley-Davidson Forty-eights, and 2017 Harley-Davison Roadsters.

Mijares creates pieces that are rich in culture, just as Norman Collins used his past Naval experience and Hawaiian surroundings to influence his flash tattoos. Mijares brings fresh perspective to the #SailorMeetsHarley bikes by interpreting his unique style onto his Harley-Davidson bike. Check out his contribution below:
