I wanna rock…an S&M Widowmaker

5 05 2011

Sometime in the early 90s, a  metal band lead singer (that hit the big time a decade earlier) got together with a  little bike company called S&M Bikes and the S&M Widowmaker was born.

The lead singer? Dee Snider from Twister Sister.

Here’s a excerpt from the news section of the February 1993 edition of Ride Magazine with some more background.

There was  an extremely short run of these made so prices commanded for these rigs has understandably gone through the roof.

All in all, pretty cool.
