Darwin Motorcycles have made it a mission to help this Navy Vet get his Dream bike that he lost among everything he owned in this devastating tornado.

Navy Vet, Gerald Mobley, lost everything in the May 20th tornado that devastated the town of Moore, Oklahoma.

Our friend and freelance photo journalist James Pratt came across Gerald during recovery efforts yesterday.

Salvaged from the rubble that was once his home, he found what he told James, “was going to be his dream bike”.

He had been building it in his garage, piece by piece, as he could afford it. It appears the chassis and motor are salvageable. But this bike is currently part of his worst nightmare. James, knowing about our support for Pros4Vets and our ReCycle For The Troops program, contacted me to relay Gerald’s story.

I immediately wanted to help. However, still recovering from a very depressed economy, I have my concerns about the financial aspect of this project. SCREW THAT.

We have faith that the motorcycle community will rally with us and WE WILL BUILD HIS DREAM BIKE.

Please join us.

If you are able to contribute in any way, either with parts or with services or with funding, please contact us at evolve@DarwinMotorcycles.com to help put a smile on Gerald’s face.
