FX popular motorcycle drama TV series "Sons of Anarchy" is on its seventh and final season and for the past seven years the show is a huge supporter of Harley-Davidson motorcycles. The company took a nose dive from their 1 million units sold back in 2007 in U.S. sales and slowly gaining back its popularity with motorcycle sales in U.S. that reached 465,783 in 2013.
But thanks to "Sons of Anarchy" the company is on the rise again and on its way towards prominence when compared to any motorcycle brands. The show helped Harley-Davidson sales jump 6 percent in 2013 and now on its season finale fans of the show can watch out for more awesome bikes to be featured on the show.
"We basically saved Harley," jokes SOA star Mark Boone Junior. Booone plays Robert "Bobby" Munson as SAMCRO's treasurer and Jax played by Charlie Hunnam adviser. A successful acting career that spans three decades, Boone appeared opposite Christian Bale in "Batman Begins" and starred opposite Guy Pierce in "Memento."
Now the "Sons of Anarchy" stars shares the spotlight with motorcycle fanatics like Tom Cruise, George Clooney and Brat Pitt. Stars of the hit show are not only riding bikes on the set but also own a bike in real life.
In the outskirts of Los Angeles, in a remote shipyard lies the set of "Sons of Anarchy" where it features two sets of motorcycles. One set is for the actor to ride in characters as they go around their business with the club and other set are bikes the actors ride in real life.
Like the ones they have on the show, the actors' real life bikes are all black. Kim Coates who plays Tig in "Sons of Anarchy" owns a Wide Glide with a purple, gun-shaped drawing on the fender. Co-star Charlie Hunnam jokes his bike's design "was done in nail polish."
Charlie Hunnam who plays Jax, SAMCRO's president, also own a Harley called Dyna Super Gide. Other stars who are big bike fanatic includes "The Hunger Games'" star Josh Hutcherson who owns a Moto GUzzi and "Dallas Buyers Club" star Jared Leto who drives a Ducati Monster.
