thanks for putting up with my poetry corners and pontiac posts this week, metric mofos. i’ve done this long enough to know it can be difficult in late spring to find cool bikes because everybody is out riding what’s already been built. had it not been for some readers sending in their bikes or cool metric bobbers and choppers they found whilst rummaging across the land, bikerMetric would have been pretty deserted this month. avid bM reader TOOLS1 deserves a special mention here.
finally i discovered something that i’d never seen before and there is a great story behind it. the bike is called “the handy hack” and a garage builder on advrider.com found it rusting outside on some lady’s land in november, 2009.
slowly it’s been put together with labor and donations of parts and money from advrider members across the nation.
now that the bike is nearly complete, the men who built it have decided that it should be given to somebody who needs and/or deserves it.
it’s almost fully finished and delivery will be made to the lucky winner on friday, july 27. one guy even hand made the custom shift **** you see to the right.
to view the build thread, you may have to sign up, but after doing so myself and viewing the pages i’ve discovered the forum is a good one filled with decent people. so check it out and if you know somebody who needs this bike, tell them where to go to have a shot at winning it. all they have to do is write a little story about why they deserve this ride.
check back here again as i am trying to find an email or something easy for wheelchair riders to utilize for their entries.
until then, i will guess that leaving your entry as a comment at go away garage – where i initially discovered the build – will suffice.
UPDATE: 06.21.12: got a comment you can read below with an email you can write to and get this killer ride:
mtchwlls at yahoo dot com.
*** bless all who need this. the hardest part will be choosing the winner, i’m sure.
