Chrome Bear

The Chrome Bear at the House of Harley-Davidson was created by an artist out of Denver. It is made of cut-up pieces of chrome car bumpers. The House of Harley-Davidson also offers free motorcycle camping on an adjacent campground with full bathroom and shower facilities. Motorcycles only please!
