A little about me and my shop and mission. I started riding motorcycles when I was six yrs old , my dad got me a 1978 honda z50 witch I still have and ride around when my son is riding . I got my first Harley when I was 21 first street bike when I was 18 so my whole life has been on two wheels . I started working for Seago bothers choppers when I figured out that I couldn’t afford to become a Harley mechanic . They gave me a chance to learn as I worked for them . I started wrenching then progressed in to fabrication making frames mostly this was during the hay day of TV chopper shows . I worked with them for five yrs then a year or two filling in at other shops welding and helping out . I then started my own shop at my house a few years ago. Everything has progressed since then I just started building me a new bigger shop to keep up with demand .
Now to my mission, while I was working with Seago Brothers, my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2003 . A week after we got back form the 2005 Smoke Out she passed away from metastasized breast cancer complications . She fought the disease for two yrs and lost over a doctors mistake I watched my mother fight a fight no body needs to fight . I lost the only mother I had . She never got any help from organization that everybody donates too . My goal is to bring a new generation to help the fight . I want to raise money to give right were the money is needed . Straight to the women that need help that nobody thinks about . What about their bills for their mammograms? I want to get straight to where they need help no matter what that is I want to be the one to help along with my bike building family.
The bike that I built for breast cancer I plan to ride to Sturgis in 2011 from Atlanta . I have started letting women survivors of cancer sign the motorcycles primary belt so they can be with me on my ride in spirit . The chopper is a rigid frame shovelhead chopper that has a seventy’s flair, its not going to be easy by any means with a two and a half gallon tank. My goal is to raise fifty thousand dollars in a yr and a half, I will give all donation info on my blog so when every one that donates knows where there money has gone unlike most charity foundations . I will post a receipt for every dollar that goes out I hope I can get everyone’s support in this mission and continue this for years to come .
