Get Ready for the Leather and Ice Online Auction

The annual Leather and Ice online auction will go live on October 18, with proceeds going to support the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum. Or better said... the history of motorcycling. Ending on November 15, the auction offers memorabilia autographed by some members of the AMA Hall of Fame, such as Bill Werner and renowned Arlen Ness, as well as authentic gear, including motorcycle boots and leather jackets, collectibles and more.

One of the auction highlights this year is a scholarship to the PowerSports Institute (PSI). The winner of this item can use it for himself, or as a gift it to a friend or family member. Last year, the scholarship went to Ken Mancini from Batavia, New York, who was the school's Student of the Month for July 2009.

"And it's getting better every day,"
Mancini said. "This is something I wanted to do for a long time. I've always tinkered with cars and motorcycles, and I wanted to learn how to do it the right way. The excitement, the intensity, I saw here really makes it a great opportunity. When you're looking at the scholarship in the online auction, you're really looking at a bargain."

"Last year was our first time participating in the auction, and it was a great success,"
said Jordan Brenner, admissions and marketing manager for the Ohio Technical College (OTC) and the PSI. "With the economy on the downside and the nation facing its struggles, this is a chance for PSI to really benefit an individual interested in beginning a prosperous career and by saving on the cost of a full tuition," Brenner added.
