Victory Motorcycles Auction to Benefit Fort Hood Families
The Victory Kingpin 8-Ball comes painted in traditional olive drab and featuring markings reminiscent of past decades, while the Victory Hammer S features a design scheme that reflects the modern military.
"We certainly appreciate the freedom to ride though this wonderful country, and that freedom comes with a price," said Mark Blackwell, vice president of motorcycles. "We at Victory Motorcycles and Polaris Industries are proud to support those who have made the greatest commitment to this country, and we thank them for their dedicated service. It was a unique experience to build these two American motorcycles that represent the freedom, quality and lifestyle of our country that our Armed Forces protect each day."
The auction is another component of Victory's Full Throttle Salute, a program that offers enlisted and former military men and women the opportunity to purchase a new Victory motorcycle at a reduced cost.
"We know that a pretty significant number of our Victory owners are current or former military personnel," said Blackwell. "We receive letters and communications from many of them and so we were very proud to recently announce a program to offer our support and say ‘Thank You' to the men and women of the US Armed Forces."
The eBay charity auction bidding for the bikes will start at $10,000 and will end on Memorial Day of May 31, 2010.
