Custom Chopper Signed by President Obama Up for Auction
The United States Army Chopper bearing Obama's signature has been built by Hardcore Choppers and dubbed the P-40 Warhawk.
Aside from the President's signature, the one-off motorcycle also features autographs from Vice President Joe Biden and national security adviser James Jones. It was, in fact, Jones’ son, Jim Jones, who donated the bike to the auction.
Other highlights of this special piece of machinery include aircraft quality wiring, a dove leather seat, handmade "two into one" stainless steel exhaust, and HC "speedster" bars with internal clutch and throttle. Rounding off the package are Avon tires covering the 18" rear and 21" front "speedster" wheels.
The P-40 Warhawk will be auctioned on September 23-25 to benefit the Fisher House Foundation. The foundation builds houses around the country and donates them to the government to provide free housing to military families who have someone being treated at a military or Veterans Affairs hospital.
