Twenty-eight thousand people in the U.S. are living with the diagnosis of a pediatric brain tumor. The Ride for Kids program, a national series of motorcycle rides that supports the work of the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation, made it a mission to eliminate the challenges of childhood brain tumors by funding medical research and family support programs. Brian Klock of Klock Werks said he felt humbled to be able to help kids and families, and also honored to be paired with American Honda and Cycle World.
The new Ride for Kids/Cycle World project bike raffle features a Honda F6B donated by American Honda and customized by Klock Werks. It was on display at the New York International Motorcyle Show December 11th-13th.
The F6B is a new platform for Honda, designed to bring in a different crowd. It has everything that riders love about a Gold Wing, but is a sportier version of the touring standard.
Klock donated his team’s design and labor time for the F6B project, as well as the original Klock Werks Flare Windshield. Other donated parts and accessories include front 180/55-18 and rear tires from Avon Tyres, raked 180 tree kit from Hannigan Motorsports, drink holder, saddlebag trim, floorboards and rear reflector from Kuryakyn, Cerrakote flat black exhaust by Liquid Designz, Mustang seat and backrest pad, Eclipse series “Temper” front wheel from RC Components, SoCal Moto Gear’s HID headlights and smoked mirror turn signals, Monster Oval exhaust system from Vance and Hines, and custom badges and license plate frame, courtesy of XYZ Machine.
“It was great to get our hands on this bike,” Klock said. “We gave the F6B an even thicker look and more attitude with a 180 front tire, along with the rest of these subtle, but custom, touches.”
The winner of this decked-out Honda F6B will be drawn in May 2016. Tickets are available one for $5 or five for $20 at www.curethekids.org/projectbike.
