The Harley Davidson "Spudster" is actually an 883 Sportster, but with potatoes painted all over the body.

It was a promotional item from the Wisconsin Potato & Vegetable Growers Association, and used to encourage consumers into buying more potatoes.




The promotion started in September 2006, and ran until May 2007. The WPVGA sent mailers to consumers throughout Wisconsin. The mailer invited them to visit the WPVGA website and enter a special "code" printed on the mailer. This registered them for a chance to win the "Spudster".

The Spudster was painted by Kurt Carloni of Oconomowoc, WI. It features specifically, "Wisconsin Yukon Gold" potatoes.

The winner of the Spudster turned out to be Joe Corsaro of Indianapolis Fruit Company, Inc.

The WPVGA still plans on featuring the Spudster at upcoming trade shows.
