The Texas Star was created proudly by Texans and it has been seen at many Texas events where it always brings a smile to those who view it. The bike is complimented by pieces indigenous to the state.

Even at first glance, the Texas Star is inviting and intriguing to Texans (and non-Texans alike) of all ages, regardless of their motorcycle knowledge.

The paint and artwork by Sonny Keeton is Texas all the way with gold-leaf “Texas Star” logo and its sub-title, “A rolling tribute to our home” echoes the feelings of the Keeton family, while a detailed airbrush rendering of the Alamo enhances the rear fender.

The Texas Star is accessorized with a replication of Jim Bowie’s actual knife from the Alamo. The knife was built in-house at Custom Motorcycles by Sonny from a blueprint furnished by historian Joseph Musso, who owns the original knife. Some of the other adornments are spur-shaped front footboards, real antler rear footpegs , solid silver Texas commemorative coins on the handlebars and rear fender. The barbed-wire brackets were fabricated by Sonny’s son, Waylon. The wheels, with classic Texas styling were designed by Sonny and machined by Ego Tripp of Lubbock. The seats are made from real Texas Longhorn hide from Amarillo Stockyardsand they were hand-laced by Jason Rexrod.

Sonny’s wife, Judy, coordinated the research and interaction with historians Joe Musso and Frank Thompson to help insure proper usage of materials and the correctness of the unique moving presentation.

This eye-catching machine has been featured in Ride Texas Magazine, Victoria Newspaper, various television appearances, Willie Nelson and the Texas Roadhouse and Thunderpress.
