FANCY yourself on a Harley, getting out on the highway, looking for adventure and whatever comes your way?

Then get along to the Ocean Shores Tavern tomorrow night for their Harley, Hotties and Hammers night.

A $13,000 Harley Davidson 883 in Voodoo Purple is up for grabs and all you have to do is buy a Lion Nathan beer at the bar to be in the running to win it.

There is one catch - you have to be at the tavern to win the Harley when it's drawn at around 9.15pm. Lead singer of Hammers, Leigh Dowling, said it was going to be a huge night, with more than 10,000 tickets already in the prize barrel.

"We reckon there will be more than 20,000 tickets in the barrel by the time it's drawn," he said.

"It's a huge prize, so we are expecting a huge crowd."

Leigh's partner Kim recently gave birth to the couple's first child, Harper, and is also co-owner of the tavern.

So apart from the blistering rock and roll, the hot babes and the Harley Davidson, Friday night will also be a family affair.

Harley, Hotties and Hammers is an 18 years and over event and there will be courtesy buses to get you home safe afterwards.
