Fremont Street Experience Commissions the First Ever Las Vegas-Themed Motorcycle
Award-winning bike builder James Callahan announced today that Callahan Custom Cycles, www.CallahanCustomCycles.com, has been commissioned by Fremont Street Experience to build the first ever Las Vegas-themed motorcycle as part of Fremont Street Experience’s "Born To Be Wild" promotion.
“It is an honor to have been chosen for this build,” Callahan said. “I take pride in knowing that the Callahan name will forever be a part of Las Vegas history. We want to thank Fremont Street Experience for putting their confidence in our shop.”
Fremont Street Experience is a five-block entertainment destination whi ch links 10 downtown Las Vegas hotel-casinos. The featured attraction of Fremont Street Experience is the world’s largest video screen, Viva Vision. The “Pit Boss” custom motorcycle is scheduled to be unveiled during Las Vegas’ BikeFest weekend, Oct. 1-4.
The privilege of designing the Las Vegas-themed custom bike, deemed “Pit Boss”, went to conceptual artist and designer Bogdan 'Bo' Asciu, owner of Custom Eyes Concepts Co., www.CustomEyesConcepts.com. The concept design of ‘Pit Boss’ can currently be seen nightly in its virtual form in “Born 2B Wild.” The six-minute video plays nightly at midnight on Fremont Street Experience’s world-renowned Viva Vision canopy screen. The world’s largest LED video screen spans 1,500 feet of four blocks, captivating viewers with 12.5 million lights along with a 550,000-watt sound system.
“We used the concept of ‘Pit Boss’ in our new Viva Vision show ‘Born 2B Wild’, which we debuted at last year’s Las Vegas BikeFest,” said Jeff Victor, President of Fremont Street Experience. “Now during this year’s Las Vegas BikeFest, we will be unveiling the real thing. Between Bogdan’s unique design and the talent that James brings to the build, we know we have a classic, one-of-a-kind motorcycle in the making.”
“Fremont Street Experience gave us a well-written theme description which fit well with my love of old school bike and car designs. Conceiving the ‘Pit Boss’ proved effortless,” Asciu said regarding his inspiration for the “Pit Boss” design. “I am immensely grateful to Fremont Street Experience for giving the builder and myself this incredible once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. It's truly an honor to work with them and Callahan Custom Cycles to add to the history of Fremont Street."
