Harley Davidson Cosmic Starship
The Harley Davidson brand is one of the most recognizable brand names in the world, never mind in the automotive industry. While there are a lot of affordable Harley’s on the market, a Harley Davidson Cosmic Starship will cost you $1,500,000. Sorry, that’s what the bike would have cost you if you bought it in 2010. In 2012, it sold at an auction for $3,000,000.
The motorcycle is hand-painted by world-renowned artist Jack Armstrong. Armstrong is a rider and motorcycle enthusiast whose paintings alone sell for millions of dollars.
