Who wouldn’t want to be the proud owner of this 69 Chopper by Brass Balls Bobbers? It is the official motorcycle for 2011 Daytona Bike Week up for raffle which Wire Plus recently agreed to provide wiring and a digital speedo for.
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.
“We like supporting companies that are making a difference in the community as well as promoting the sport of motorcycles,” stated Rick Marler, President of Wire-Plus. “What Dar Holdsworth is doing with his uber 69 Chopper is making a statement that in this tough economic time it is still important to give back to the community.”
Every year Chris Maida, Editor of American Iron Magazine, selects the motorcycle to be raffled off. He 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.”
Dar Holdsworth, President of Brass Balls Bobbers, stated: “We are excited that Rick Marler, President of Wire-Plus, is coming onboard with this project as his custom wiring harnesses and digital black face speedo delivers an outstanding reliability and a high-level of coolness to the motorcycle.”
