Concord, NH, October 04, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Free entries to win a custom motorcycle and help support Wellspring International Outreach, a charity that seeks to change the lives of Peruvian orphans, are still available.
The drawing for this one-of-a-kind Triumph Bonneville, built by Dime City Cycles, is presented by Iron & Air magazine. Entries for the giveaway close this Saturday, October 5, at 3:00 p.m. eastern time. Registering to win takes just 60 seconds at IronAndAir.com/TriumphGiveaway.
The lucky winner of this vintage-inspired bike, which was donated by Triumph and now valued at $22,500, will be announced at the Barber Vintage Festival, in Leeds, Alabama, on October 12.
Starting with the Bonneville's Modern Classic facade as a blank canvas, the Dime City crew reached out to British Customs, Progressive Suspension and Speed Merchant to donate a selection of unique parts for the build.
Highlights include BC's Predator exhaust, airbox-removal kit, fender eliminator and electrical-component-relocation brackets. Progressive kicked in shocks and fork springs. Speed Merchant supplied a set of its trick-looking, finned engine covers. The bike wears a Dime City handlebar, rearsets and period-perfect tail section. Lastly, Moe Colors brought the project to life by laying down a rich Dime City Red paint job.
Iron & Air's Dime City Bonnie will be on display in Triumph's display booth during the Vintage Festival and at Ace Corner, by turn 17, on Barber Motorsports Park's racecourse, where the bike's new owner will be presented the keys at 5:00 p.m.
"We're honored to partner with strong and progressive brands like Triumph and Iron & Air, as well as Neale Bayly," said Jason Paul Michaels of Dime City Cycles. "To be able to take our skill sets and build a bike to be given away while also helping Wellspring is a dream come true."
Bayly is Wellspring International Outreach's co-founder. The charity provides for children at Hogar Belen an orphanage, in Moquegua, Peru. Those entering to win the Triumph can also donate to the foundation. Since the project went live in July, thousands of people have taken time to learn about Wellspring and make personal donations.
Veteran motorcycle journalist and host of Neale Bayly Rides, a reality television series with true heart, Bayly discovered the orphanage on a ride in one of the 45 countries he's visited by bike. The show's first season followed a small, eclectic group of motorcyclists to the orphanage on a grueling seven-day adventure over extreme terrain to experience the physical and emotional journeys of their lives.
"When I met Jason and Brett Houle from Iron & Air last year, I was immediately impressed with what they are doing," said Bayly. "They're bringing fresh ideas, positive energy, a great depth of talent and creativity to the café racer culture. It was immediately clear they're leaders, not followers. So, when they told me they were partnering with Triumph to build a café-styled Bonneville to give away and wanted people to have the option of donating to Wellspring during sign up, I jumped at the chance to participate. I'm simply blown away that so many people are taking such a great interest in the cause."
