EBR Motorcycles Auction of VIN #1 benefits Military Charity, Fisher House Foundation
East Troy, WI - EBR Motorcycles, Erik Buell, and Liquid Asset Partners are pleased to announce Memorial Day weekend that they will be donating the proceeds from the auction of the first 2016 EBR Motorcycle, a Limited Edition ‘1776’ 1190RX, to benefit the Fisher House Foundation. The online auction is open to the public and ends July 4, to highlight the American flag themed bike. The Fisher House Foundation is best known for a network of comfort homes where military and veterans’ families can stay at no cost while a loved one is receiving treatment.
“We at EBR Motorcycles and Liquid Asset Partners believe in the freedom of America, and know that freedom isn’t free,” said Bill Melvin of EBR Motorcycles. “We are eternally grateful to our troops and their families. At first we felt the ‘1776’ bike showcased our American Motorcycle heritage, and instantly when we saw the flag on the bike we wanted to show our love of America by donating the proceeds to support our troops, veterans, and their families. We are glad the first Limited Edition bike can benefit the Fisher House Foundation. They do amazing work, and there was no better day to have the auction end then 4th of July, which this year is our nations’ 240th anniversary! What a way to celebrate our freedom! So I hope everyone bids with patriotism and charity in their hearts, because it’s really for a great cause.”
“The Buell family and EBR Motorcycles is a close knit group. We intensely appreciate our freedom to be uniquely American, and also understand what family and friends mean in times of adversity,” said Erik Buell, CTO. “It's the least we can do to donate this first motorcycle from the new EBR towards the goal of bringing family and friends closer to the servicemen and women who have willingly sacrificed so much for all of us. Freedom isn't free, and we hope those who bid on this unique bike bid with that in mind. You can be sure that 100% of what is in the winning bid will go to the Fisher House.”
