The King of Pop may be gone but his memory will forever live on. Case in point, recently two of Michael Jackson’s three children received a pair of customized motorcycles dedicated to their legendary dad. The gifts come just days away from the late singer’s second anniversary since the musical icon suddenly passed away.
Michael’s children, 14-year old eldest son Prince Michael, 13-year old daughter Paris and youngest son Prince Michael II (aka Blanket) at 9, will have to wait a while before sporting the cycles, which were lovingly adorned with images of their father. A side view of the powerful looking bike shows Jackson in various poses. From front to end in every available space, Jackson’s face is shown with one shot of the singer in his trademark sunglasses, while in the others the King Of Pop strikes a more regal pose.
The front view of the cycle, using the windshield visor as a canvas, shows Jackson in his younger Jackson 5 days, with a shot of the king to be sitting in what appears to be a throne. His recognizable afro marks the historic time of the photos, long before Jackson moved on to sport a longer and flowing hairstyle.
Michael Jackson passed away on June 25, 2009 as a result of acute propofol intoxication after suffering cardiac arrest. Sketchy details regarding Jackson’s death led the Los Angeles County Coroner’s office to rule the passing a homicide. Jackson’s personal physician, Conrad Murray, was with charged involuntary manslaughter and pleaded not guilty. The trail for Murray is scheduled to begin September 8 of this year.
Although his unfortunate passing two years ago broke hearts around the globe, Jackson’s lasting legacy is cemented by not only his number of hit records and albums, but in how fans continue to adore the singer and also this honor bestowed to his progeny.
Rest in peace to the King Of Pop.
