A Great Jump Start To Bob’s 2014 Fundraising Efforts

603204_561623120578248_583007121_nAfter a lot of promoting and organizing, the Project Bike auction held on October 5 turned out to be a great success, raising approximately $3,431.42 for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation! Raising this money was an added bonus to our ultimate goal which was to get as many bikes out of the warehouse so we could make room for motorcyclists who need a secure, climate controlled facility to store their bikes in the colder months (not everyone is a year around rider!).

We had 21 bikes heading towards the auction, two were sold during the week: a 1978 R100 with an R90/6 motor and a 1951 R51/3 basket case (a ton of interest on that), leaving 19 bikes for auction to approximately 35 bidders that arrived Saturday morning with the hopes of going home with a fun winter project and many did just that!

1002018_561623133911580_1997465257_nOf the 19 motorcycles another 8 bikes sold including: 1986 K100RS @ $300, 1988 K75 @ $600, 1990 K75S @ $1,000, 1964 R27 @ $2,200, 2003 K1200LTC @ $3000, 1973 R60/5 @ $2,500, 2001 R1100RT @ $1,900 and a 1985 R80S @ $2,850.

The K1200LTC was an outright donation from a generous client (yes it needed some work) with all net proceeds going to the PBTF and Ride for Kids. So a special thanks to Robert Nagle for donating this bike and a big congrats to the highest bidder, Thomas Rhodes!

We also want to thank auctioneer Steve Dance of Steve Dance Auctions who donated his time to lead the auction. If you are ever in need of an auctioneer, we highly recommend you contact Steve whose family owned business has been serving the community for nearly 100 years!

There is still a nice selection of project BMW’s to choose from if you or someone you know is on the hunt for a fun and rewarding project to keep them busy over the colder months. All of the bikes can easily be reincarnated with just a little TLC and time. Even if you aren’t a “do-it-yourselfer” any one of our certified technicians would be more than happy to take part in bringing one of these bikes back to life!
