Alfred DiMora, former Clenet car-designer and manufacturer, is a long-time friend of George Barris. Currently, DiMora ( is creating the most technologically-advanced production luxury-car, the sixteen-cylinder, $2-million-dollar �NATALIA�. One would expect that Alfred also knows a cool cruiser when he sees one!

He and his daughter Chanel knew they had to have the first of this collectible series. George was honored by the request and personally autographed and hand-delivered the #1 �Darts� Cruiser, straight from the production line, to Chanel at DiMora�s home in Palm Springs, California.

Curious people of all ages have been stopping Chanel every time she rides it. Chanel says, �Riding this bike is great fun and exercise and I feel like the owner of an exotic car.�
