Need a new bike? This could be yours!!!


Do  you want or need a new bike? Well here is your chance to win a new bike and help out a fellow custom bike shop in the process.

Here’s the scoop.

Hi,  my name is Jeremy Cupp.  I’m a husband, father of three, and a full-time machinist.  In my spare time (haha) I make parts for motorcycles and build bikes.  My dream is to one day own a shop and work for myself.  I need your help.  You see, I built a bike recently called “Old Black” which is a full custom that I have more than 1000 hours into.  It won a few awards like the Ultimate Builder National Grand Champion U.S.A., and 2nd at the AMD Worldwide Championship of Bike Building in Sturgis.  What I would like to do is raffle off the bike and use that money as a down payment to buy a humble little building known as the Grottoes Theatre in Grottoes, Virginia.  It is an old theatre building that saw the likes of Smiley Burnett and Gene Autry.  If I was able to get this place, I would have a permanent home for LC Fabrications.  The raffle gives you a 1 in 300 chance of winning Old black or more if you buy more than one ticket.  The winner will be announced March 24th 2014.  The bike can be picked up April 13th at the Handbuilt Motorcycle Show in Austin, Texas or delivered soon after within a 500 mile radius of Grottoes, Virginia by me personally.  If those options don’t work for the winner, I’d be happy to ship the bike anywhere else at your expense.  Good luck and thanks for your help!
