Boys Ranch, Mother Road Motorcycles Transform Bike and Lives
The Good Samaritan Boys Ranch in partnership with Mother Road Motorcycles have completed a project which will help raise the self-esteem of residents at the facility and raise funds for the services provided to at-risk teenage boys.
Helping with Horsepower Bike Rebuild Program began in October 2012 with the donation of a 2006 Harley Davidson police motorcycle which the boys, along with the help of many volunteers and sponsors, have rebuilt to a custom motorcycle which will be raffled in September. The completed bike will be on display at various bike shows and events throughout the summer where raffle tickets can be purchased for a $20 donation to the Good Samaritan Boys Ranch.
The boys have named the bike “Cycle of Change” to reflect their ongoing efforts at changing their lives for the better while they are residents at the Ranch.
The Ranch and Mother Road Motorcycles will host an appreciation luncheon and unveiling of the bike at Mother Road Motorcycles, 1610 East St. Louis in Springfield on Wednesday, May 15 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., according to Kirk Wheeler, owner of Mother Road Motorcycles and Wheeler Auto.
“We are excited to partner with the Good Samaritan Boys Ranch to helping them transform this 2006 Harley Davidson while they are working to transform their lives during their stay at the Ranch,” said Kirk Wheeler. The project is modeled after a similar effort at Abbott House, a home for girls located in Mitchell, South Dakota.
Additional partners in the project include local sponsors Ray Johns Hot Rods and Harleys, Redline Finishes, Whites Auto Restyling, Transport Graphics and national sponsors Klock Werks, Rampage Wheels, Kuryakyn, and Paul Yaffe’s Bagger Nation.
