    Default Sammy teams with Arlen Ness for Bad Motor Scooter Charity Giveaway!

    way to go, Sammy!

    ----------------------------------------------

    Sammy Hagar and Arlen Ness Create Motorcycle Masterpiece
    National Drawing Will Benefit First Candle - Helping to Prevent SIDS and Stillbirth

    Red Rocker Sammy Hagar and famed motorcycle icon Arlen Ness are teaming up to raise awareness and funds among motorcycle enthusiasts in support of First Candle, one of the nation’s leading charities dedicated to infant health and survival. A one-of-a-kind motorcycle has been customized by Arlen Ness with original artwork by Sammy Hagar, and will be awarded to the winning ticket holder in a national drawing to benefit First Candle.

    “As a father of four children,” says Sammy Hagar, “I would do anything to help prevent the tragedy of SIDS and stillbirth in the United States. It is an honor to help spread awareness about these tragedies in order to save as many babies’ lives as possible.”

    ‘The Red Rocker Chopper,’ named after ‘Red Rocker’ Sammy Hagar, is valued at $70,000 and will embark on a promotional tour throughout California, Nevada and South Dakota to generate donations and offer tickets for the drawing to motorcycle fans nationwide. The rare bike will make appearances at the Moto Grand Prix (Monterey, CA - July), the Shoreline Sammy Hagar concert (Mountain View, CA – August), Sturgis Bike Rally (South Dakota - August) and other events and locations.

    “We are so excited to be working with Sammy Hagar and Arlen Ness on the Red Rocker Chopper event,” says Dr. Marian Sokol, president of First Candle. “The generosity of their support is overwhelming, and we look forward to providing their fans and supporters with an opportunity to win this amazing chopper, while at the same time helping First Candle with our efforts to help babies survive and thrive."

    Tickets are available for a suggested donation of $10 per ticket or three for $25. The winning ticket will be drawn on December 9, 2006 at an open-house party to be held at the Arlen Ness World Headquarters in Dublin, California. Winner need not be present to win.

    Although this is for a good cause, the bike is hardly one of Ness's finer efforts. Basically a stocker with powder-coated wheels and the usual Arlen swinger exhaust. Value $70,000? Not really.

    Default agreed. not a very inspiring bike.

    i'm not much of a chopper fan, actually. but Ness has done some really cool shit.

    i prefer four wheeled toys. in fact, shortly i'll be posting a link to a couple of sammy's newer Cabo Wabo race cars. definitely more my style!

    but it's a damn good cause and the blue, white and Red Rocker is at least using his celebrity to endorse a worthwhile cause, instead of say... doing a sound score for a porno like another idiot we know.

    A worthy cause to be sure - but I get the impression all the builder knows about Sammy Hagar came from that stock picture of him standing in front of the American Flag with a shirt on that has stars and stripes on it. It's like someone said, "Hmmm, that guy must love stars and stripes. Let's cover it with stars and stripes!" Except for the wheels, which have spades on them. Odd.
