Each year for the last 16 years, the Daytona Beach Community Foundation holds a drawing for the Official Bike Week Motorcycle. Fifty dollars ($50) enters you into the drawing. Since there are only 4500 tickets printed, the odds of being a winner are incredibly high.
Chris Maida, Editor of American Iron Magazine, said, “I selected the 69 Chopper based on an evaluation we did for the magazine at the 2010 Daytona Bike Week. We worked out creating a special high-performance model with a retro S&S Shovelhead-style engine combined with the first 69 Chopper softail.”
The Daytona Beach Community Foundation will receive Brass Balls’ latest model and first softail-version of the 69 Chopper.
“We had planned to release the softail-style 69 Chopper in the second quarter of 2011, but after understanding the importance of the Foundation, we decided to move up the production date to assist in the promotion with the rollout of our new model,” explained Dar Holdsworth, Brass Balls’ BossMan.
