2014 Beirut Bike Festival showcases Jeep Wrangler Harley Davidson edition
Jeep and Harley-Davidson joined forces at the 2014 Beirut Bike Festival (BBF), which was held on the Beirut Waterfront from 19-21 September. Gargour Automotive Company (GAC), the authorized distributor of Jeep in Lebanon, created a Jeep Wrangler Harley Davidson Edition especially for the event.
“Our Mopar Performance Centre carried out all of the modifications to create the Jeep Wrangler Harley-Davidson Edition, which is based on a Wrangler Unlimited Sport, in less than two weeks,” said Negib Debs, Chrysler Group General Manager at GAC.
The special edition model included Harley-Davidson branding, a custom interior and colour coding, new bumpers, fender flares, power hood, snorkel, a 4-inch MoparFox lift kit, Mopar off road black wheels with 35-inch mud terrain tyres and a 50-inch LED bar.
Other popular attractions included live street art painting on two Jeep Wrangler hoods and grilles by Beirut-based graffiti artists ASHEKMAN – two designs were specially made for the event, one inspired by the iconic American eagle, combined with the Harley-Davidson logo and another created around the Jeep 7-slot grille incorporating Arabic calligraphy.
“The Jeep Wrangler Harley-Davidson edition then took pride of place at the front of the Thunder Parade, which also featured 50 Harley-Davidson police bikes,” said Debs. “Needless to say, this one-of-a-kind Wrangler attracted a lot of admirers during the event – so much so that it was sold straight away!”
