A series of Special Edition Arlen Ness Victorymotorcycles amplified the Minnesota-based brand’s credibility in the 2000s. In 2016, Ness was earned the Sturgis Lifetime Achievement Award.

    Ness described our sport this way: “Motorcycling has been a great ride. My whole life since I’ve been motorcycling has been wonderful. I’ve met so many nice people. Friends all over the world. We can go almost anyplace and stay with friends. It’s been great.”

    There will be a memorial service and celebration of life at a later date. Ness is survived by Beverly, his wife of 59 years, along with his children and grandchildren. Ness’s son Cory and grandson Zach are also noted custom motorcycle builders.
