You get Awesome, I double the Win.

Out of the 52 YOTC bikes, 34 have been sold...raising a total of $2900 that's been split between Home Fur-Ever and LifeBuilders Detroit. Thank YOU so much for the help in supporting causes I believe in!

But now, for the 18 remaining pieces, let's up the ante. Whichever YOTC piece you buy, I will match the money....effectively doubling the donation.

Buy Maestro for $130, and $260 will go to charity.

Harley Chopper Sculpture

Let's see how much money we can raise in the next 2 weeks.

All 18 bikes are listed in the "Choppers for Charity" section of the BDW online store.

The Final Chop

52 weeks. 52 sculptures for charity. Over.

"Revelations" is the final Motorcycle Sculpture in the Year of the Chopper Project. So far half of the pieces have sold, and we've raised over two thousand dollars that has been split between Home Fur-Ever and LifeBuilders Detroit. That means that once all 52 bikes have sold we will have surpassed our goal of $4k! You can purchase one of the remaining pieces in the Choppers for Charity section of my online Etsy store. Feel free to spread the word!

So here is Revelations. Admire it carefully....or suffer the fate of my buddy Joe:
Epic way to finish! A skull, engraved flames, and a flippin' COFFIN GAS TANK!!! Too much win!
