CUSTOM ARMY CHOPPER/MOTORCYCLE SIGNED BY

PRESIDENT OBAMA, VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN
 TO BE AUCTIONED

TO SUPPORT FISHER HOUSE FOUNDATION
***

Fisher House national network of comfort homes
provides support to families of wounded service men and women from Operations Iraqi Freedom  and Enduring Freedom.

***

More than 120,000 families have stayed at a Fisher House,
 saving more than $140 million.

 

(WASHINGTON, DC) – The Fisher House Foundation today announced that it will be the beneficiary of the auction of a custom-built United States Army Chopper autographed by President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and National Security Advisor General James L. Jones, Jr. The motorcycle will be auctioned by esteemed motor vehicle auction house Barrett-Jackson on September 23-25 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

 

The motorcycle, designed and built by Hard Core Choppers, Inc., is believed to be the only motorcycle ever signed by a sitting President.  It was donated for auction by Jim Jones, CEO of Dynology and son of National Security Advisor General James L. Jones, Jr.

 

“We are grateful to be the beneficiaries of this tremendous generosity,” said Dave Coker, President of the Fisher House Foundation. “We hope that people will bid with their hearts, knowing that they are providing invaluable assistance to those who have served and sacrificed for our country and to the families that have stood with and supported our service men and women.”

 

“In addition to inspiring motorcycle enthusiasts everywhere, the US Army Chopper was originally created to raise money for charitable organizations in the DC area,” said Mr. Jones.  “Being involved with charities for most of my life, the idea that this incredible bike could continue to once again benefit families and children in their time of need was something my father and I agreed was a much higher purpose for this machine.”

About the Chopper:

Evoking the great European racecars of the 1950s, this unique chopper features an intricate Army P40 Warhawk "theme" paint job and goes from zero to 60 mph in 2.7 seconds with a top speed of 160 mph. The six speed transmission is mated to a huge, 127-inch, super High-Performance 150 HP engine that produces 145 lbs of torque.  Avon tires cover the 18-inch rear and 21-inch front "speedster" wheels to add to the thrill ride experience.  Six-piston caliper Jay brakes will stop the bike in an instant.  Aircraft quality wiring, a dove leather seat, handmade "two into one", stainless steel exhaust, and HC "speedster" bars with internal clutch and throttle complete this incredible package.

 

About Fisher House Foundation:

Founded in 1990, Fisher House Foundation is best known for the network of 49 comfort homes on the grounds of military and VA major medical centers. The Foundation provides support to families of patients receiving care at the nearby medical center and has ensured that families of service men and women wounded or injured in Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom do not pay for their stay at a Fisher House or other base facility if they are on a wait list. Since 1990, more than 120,000 families have stayed at one or more Fisher Houses – at a cost savings of more than $140 million.  For more information on Fisher House Foundation, go to www.fisherhouse.org, or call toll-free (888) 294-8560.
