Two motorcycles have been generously donated to RIH for their silent auction to be held at the Grand Marshal dinner this Friday evening, April 14th at the World Golf Village in St. Augustine, Florida. In order for the general public to have a chance to bid on these exciting machines, the silent auction on the motorcycles will continue on Saturday the 15th at the Concours d’Elegance of the 23rd Annual Riding Into History™. The motorcycles will be displayed at the RIH Charity Store and bids are open until 2 pm.
A 2001 BMW R1200C Phoenix Cruiser (pictured above) was donated by Norman Nelson of Florida. This machine was purchased from the original owner with only 42,000 miles on it. It has been fully serviced and comes with new tires, new fuel lines as well as new front and rear stainless brake lines. The fuel tank has been cleaned internally and sealed and the bike comes with the BMW manual, additional brake and safety lights and a center stand for maintenance. This one is ready to ride for its new owner.
A 1981 Honda GL500 Silver Wing was donated by Christopher Sinclair of New Jersey. This interesting machine has undergone a unique transformation. Originally a fully dressed touring bike, it has been converted into a bobber. Still a work in progress to some degree, this could be a real fun bike. It’s got a 2 into 1 exhaust set up along with a solo seat. It is shaft driven instead of a chain drive and its rear shock and fender give it a distinctive look. This one is also ready to ride for its new owner, but could also be a fun project for someone to complete the customization on.
Please plan to attend the 23rd Annual Riding Into History™ Concours d’Elegance this Saturday, April 15th at the World Golf Village in St. Augustine, Florida. Who knows? Maybe you’ll go home with a new to you motorcycle. Visit www.ridingintohistory.org to learn more about this year’s event.
