Harley Davidson Collectibles
Harley Davidson Beer Crown Collection - Released 1994 & 1996
Labatt Breweries of Canada teamed up with Harley Davidson Motorcycles
in 1994 to give away 5 Harley XLH Sportster 883's. That year 10 crowns/caps were designed with various Harley's; it became the 1994 collectors set. The original 1994 set is; Dyna Low Rider - Dyna Low Rider Conv - Fat Boy - Heritage Softail Classic - Heritage Softail Special - Road King - Softail Custom - Springer Softail -Ultra Classic Electra Glide - XLH Sportster 883.
In 1996 Labatt and Harley joined in another contest. This time they used 6 of the original 10 cap designs from 1994 and added 6 new designs for a total of 12 crowns for the 1996 collection. The original 1996 set consists of; Road King - Fat Boy - Softail Custom - Springer Softail - Heritage Softail Classic - Ultra Classic Electra Glide - Dyna Super Glide - Dyna Wide Glide - Sportster 883 - Sportster 1200 Custom - Sportster 1200 Sport - Electra Glide Classic.
I was lucky to find some of Labatt Harley Davidson rouge beer crowns from both collections. From these caps I made upscale, one-of-a-kind collectible jewelry. Each cap is sealed to protect its condition then made into individual jewelry pieces. When they are gone, they are gone for good. You will not find anything like these elsewhere.
I have several crowns which have not been made into jewelry pieces. It may be possible I can make a custom request if I have cap you're looking for.
Please note these jewelry pieces have not been endorsed by Harley Davidson or its trademark however, the beer caps are authentic and by Harley Davidson. These are jewelry pieces designed and created by Julie Teeples, Metalsmith, using 1994 & 1996 highly collectible bottle crowns produced by Labatt Brewery in conjunction with HD.
