And we have a winner in our Fall East Coast Kovers Contest -- Chris Mitchell from Queens, NY -- whose classic BMW R75 6 boxer twin will now have a nice winter cover. Many congrats to Chris, and thank you to the bevy of local riders who entered this round. Seasons Greetings and all the best for 2022.
To celebrate the company's one-year anniversary and the recent release of a host of new products, East Coast Koverz' owners Christina LeGuillow and Chris Komishock have generously gifted us one bespoke offering to give away during the 2021 fall season.
The eck product is produced in a variety of colors, with the added value of an embroidered logo of your choice gracing the front. And joining the current collection of Standard and Max covers on offer are Bikini-Half, Can-Am, Trike, Sport Fit (Triumph) and Race Fit covers.
Constructed from nylon and stitched together with waterproof and mildew resistant thread, the cover is waterproof and UV resistant, and features thick elastic straps to carry the backpack it self-stores in, as well as reflective accents and a four-point toggle lock and cord system to cinch the front, rear and sides.
The patented backpack is sewn into the inside rear section of the cover and also provides a pocket for storing small belongings like wallets, phones, or keys.
You can find eck online at ecknyc.com or on Instagram at @ecknycmotorsports. And don't forget to read our 2020 feature on the New Jersey-based company.
The bespoke cover, a prize worth more than $200, will feature Chris Mitchell's choice of up to three colors (from red, navy, green, yellow, purple, black, and white) for fabrication. After he lists his selections in order of prevalence, eck will create a color combination that fits the blueprint of the cover. Also included in the prize is an embroidered patch on the front available as a 3x3, 4x4, 5x5 or 5x7 selection. All creative artwork must be submitted to eck in JPEG format.
