At The Sturgis Thunder Dome Jay Allen Will Donate Vintage BSA Lightning To The Troops

Jay Allen of Jay Allen’s Road Show has donated a 1967 BSA Lightning motorcycle to be restored and customized by Dar Holdsworth of Darwin Motorcycles.  The bike will then be given away live at the Thunder Dome in Sturgis on the evening of August 8th.

“It makes me proud to be a part of a program and to be a friend of such a person who puts so many man hours and money into a project and then gives it away,” said Jay Allen.  “Dar does this because it’s the right thing to do and I’m honored to give him the venue to give the bike away and  I’m honored that he chose the Thunder Dome to do this fine gesture.”

“We are giving this amazing bike away to a military serviceman or woman, active duty, reserve or veteran.  This is part of our ‘Re-Cycle For The Troops’ program in conjunction with Pros for Vets,” said Holdsworth.   While the bike was already in great condition, Dar and crew are completely restoring it and replacing out worn parts.  Avon Tyres donated the new tires.  The winner must be present to win and prove military status.   

Jay Allen’s Road Show is at the Thunder Dome Sturgis 2012 from August 3 – 12th.  The Thunder Dome is located three miles from Sturgis on Highway 34 across from Full Throttle Saloon.  The full event scheduled can be seen at Sturgis Thunder Dome.

    Thanks everyone. Thanks to Jay for supporting our program for the troops. FYI, the photo is of the bike almost finished. It will look like you see it here. So many of the original parts were in a condition that begged not to be chopped. So we referbished, repainted, new rubber, battery, and anything that was worn out is getting replaced. Thanks Cyril for spreading the word.
