ONNIT / Pros 4 Vets bike : Free For Troops

It's official, we've given another bike to a vet. Brian Jarvis, of Twentynine Palms, California is the winner of the Onnit bike. Brian is currently serving in the US Navy.

We teamed up with Onnit to create this amazing custom Harley Davidson Motorcycle. This 2000 Road King was donated to us as part of our Recycle For The Troops program.

Special thanks to all involved who helped make it possible. Thanks to Nicole for donating the bike to be customized and restored. Thanks to Jim Johnson who was the catalyst for getting the bike donated. Thanks to Richard at King's Customs for all they contributed to making this bagger a real winner. Thanks to LePera for a killer seat. Thanks to Outlaw polishing for bringing back that shine. Big thanks to Onnit for being a key partner in getting this bike promoted and given away to a veteran. And if that wasn't enough… Onnit also donated funds to Pros 4 Vets. There are great people in this world. We see it everyday. Support our troops.


Progressive Insurance / Toby Keith Bike / Pros 4 Vets

We partnered with Progressive Insurance to build this amazing Lane Splitter. The bike will be prominently featured in the Progressive Insurance booth at the 2013/14 International Motorcycle Shows. Active duty military members and veterans can sign up to win it for free at the shows. The bike will be awarded at the final show of the series.

CMT / Buffalo Chip / Sturgis Bike Build - Off Winner

We competed in a “bike build off” for CMT (television) at the legendary Buffalo Chip in Sturgis. This bike, which was built in one day by our team, won the build-off and was awarded to a very special Vietnam Vet... Dar’s dad. He was presented the gas tank to the bike a couple days before the build by Toby Keith & Dar on stage at Toby’s concert at the Chip.

Tornado Bike : Twisted

This bike was born out of the devastation that saw an F5 tornado demolish the town of Moore, Oklahoma. Gerald Mobley was building this bike in his garage and all that was left of it was a tattered frame and motor. Many great suppliers stepped up to help us build for him the bike of his dreams. We presented it to him at the Toby Keith Twister Relief concert in front of 60,000 fans at the University of Oklahoma football stadium in Norman, Oklahoma.

Rune for OK Kids Korral

This bike was donated to us so that it could be used to raise money for OK Kids Korral, a charity that supports children being treated for cancer in Oklahoma City. Once finished with the bike, it was auctioned at the Toby Keith benefit and raised $38,000 to support this amazing charity.

Navy Bike for Rolling Thunder Washington D.C.

In 2012 we were honored to be one of only 4 bike companies to be invited to build a bike paying tribute to a branch of the service. We were selected to build the Navy bike. The bike is one of our World Championship model Rocketeer F3’s. We took several styling cues from Naval influence & history. The seat has the Navy Jack tooled into it. The word Navy on the tank is similar to how it is on the ships. The foot pegs are made from the actual Arresting Cable from the USS Enterprise. The pipes are brass plated. The Rolling Thunder coin is flush mounted in the top triple tree. The bike along with the other tribute bikes tour the Country to pay tribute to the men & women of our armed forces.

BSA Lightning / Sturgis Free Military Raffle

This 1967 BSA Lightning was donated to us by a friend in the motorcycle industry, Jay Allen. We restored & repainted the bike, and took it to Sturgis to give away. Anyone who was in attendance who was an active duty US military member or a veteran was able to enter for free to win the bike. On Wednesday evening of Sturgis Bike Week (the same day we repeated as Production Manufacturer World Champion) we pulled a name out of a hat, and along with Jay, we called out the name of a Vietnam Vet, who became the new owner of the Lightning.

Toby Keith Bike / OK Kids Korral / Pros 4 Vets

This bike was funded by a generous customer of ours who supports both our troops and children in need. We built it to pay tribute to Toby Keith and to be auctioned in support of OK Kids Korral. The bike has Toby influences incorporated into it’s design to include his logo. It also has the Pros 4 Vets logo and is signed by Toby. The bike was raffled with all the funds going directly to the building of OK Kids Korral, which is a home away from home for families who have children being treated with life threatening illnesses.

KZ 1000 / Pros 4 Vets / Trash & Restore

We were contacted by the father in-law of a soldier. He told us his son in-law had an old bike that he had tried repeatedly to get running before he was deployed to war. The father in-law asked us to try to get it running. When we saw the bike, we told him that a set of new tires was worth more than that old bike. So we asked if we could start over. We took it to the salvage yard and swapped out. Along with the support of Pros 4 Vets, we were able to restore & customize this 1979 Kawasaki KZ 1000. We presented it to Sargent Stump upon his arrival home from deployment. As you can image, he was thrilled.

Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing & Pros 4 Vets

In 2011, we built the RLX an American Muscle bike honoring living legend, champion race car driver and race team owner Bobby Rahal's storied racing career. The RLX went on to win the 2011 World Championships of Custom/production Bike Building. We raffled the bike with all proceeds going to support our troops through Pros For Vets.

Military Digger

This bike was built in 2008 specifically for a Military Theme’d Bike Build-Off competition which it won. It was also entered in the AMD World Championships of Custom/Production Bike Building placing 3rd. Afterwards in cooperation with an amazing supporter of our troops, it was made available so that we could raffle it off with all of the proceeds going to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund.

Tattoo Digger

In 2007 this bike was our first ever entry into the AMD World Championships of Custom/Production Bike Building. It placed 5th and we were stoked. We had only been building bikes for a little over a year at that point. The bike was later sold and a portion of the proceeds were given to the Wounded Warier Foundation.
