The drawing will be held on Dec. 31, 2009, and you need not be present to win. The 2009 bike is a custom, modern day version of a 1955 Panhead. It has all the styling of a classic with the reliability of a modern machine. It even features some replica parts as well as modern parts to make this baby easier to start, stop, be faster and have more power!
Custom-built by J&P Cycles Bike Builder Kody Wisner, it features a P Series 93 inch engine from S&S Cycle. The 4-speed transmission is a Rev-Tech from Custom Chrome and connected to the engine by a Primo belt drive and Rivera pro clutch. The Panhead replica frame was donated by Ted’s V-Twin. These items and more were generously donated for this year’s motorcycle. In fact, this year’s support from various manufacturers has surpassed that of other years.
