Knievel Custom Cycles Sign Contract To Market College-Themed Motorcycles

Knievel Custom Cycles LLC today announced that its manufacturing subsidiary, Knievel Motorcycle Manufacturing, Inc., has signed a contract with The Collegiate Licensing Company (CLC), a division of IMG College, to manufacture officially licensed logo motorcycles themed after colleges and universities in the U.S.

Under terms of the agreement, an initial group of CLC institutions have granted approval to Knievel Motorcycle Company to promote this product and effort. Auburn University, University of Florida, Florida State University, University of Georgia, The University of Kansas, Louisiana State University, University of Miami (Fla.), South Carolina University, University of Tennessee, and University of Wisconsin represent a large demographic of collegiate communities that are proud to showcase their school spirit through officially licensed custom production motorcycles from Knievel Motorcycle Co.

Beginning immediately with these institutions, purchasing customers have the opportunity to design a unique, officially licensed custom motorcycle utilizing his or her favorite college or university logos, mascots or memorabilia. Each motorcycle is delivered with a certificate of authenticity and assigned a collegiate hologram representing your officially licensed and numbered product.

And if you want my opinion.  I am less than impressed by these college themed custom motorcycles and anyway,I don’t think that they are the type of bikes attracting young people. Go figure… Knievel Cycles.

    Fugly. If people want their college team logo on a bike, they will have a painter do it on their current bike gas tank. To think that some are going to buy a bike because of a painted tank logo is crazy. Knievel’s son must have a screw loose..

    I’d say it’s more for alumni and fans that can afford it. Just don’t ride it to your arch rival’s town. No “young people” will drop the coin it’ll cost to purchase one of these.

    Marketing hype. That’s it.

    I’ll pass on buying a motorcycle from a family that made their legacy crashing motorcycles.

    Sounds like Knievel Cycles made a killer deal. In that case, cool for them. Theme bikes can be done with vinyl instead of nice paint but good marketing trumps my opinions every time. peace

    Nice idea but about 5 years too late. Both Paul Sr. and Jr. must be upset they didn’t think o it first.

    And just where were OCC and Lorenzo Lamas when all this was going down ? They must have gotten left at the shore when the boat sailed away.

    If they want to rule, make a Sportster version a’la Ceasers Palace fountain jump era.

    I hear tell Knievel is also licensed to build Major League Baseball themed bikes also and have built a New York Yankee bike as well as other MLB themed bikes. Hey if you got money to burn why not?

    College themed kit bikes….hmm. I thought we had moved past this as an industry? Not very original and most likely not going to last. Oh well…what do I know? I do maintenance.
