Custom made chopper to be unveiled at Crazy Horse on August 4
3:45 pm unveiling to be followed by a blast on the mountain
On Tuesday, August 4, Crazy Horse Memorial Foundation officials will take possession of a custom made motorcycle created by Eric Gorges with Voodoo Choppers out of Clinton Township, Michigan. The handcrafted bike also features a custom paint job with a Crazy Horse Memorial theme.
Gorges is the founder and owner of Voodoo Choppers, which began its custom made bike business in 1999. A friend of the Korczak and Ruth Ziolkowski family, Gorges donated the bike to the project to help with the Memorial’s fundraising efforts. Voodoo Choppers has been featured in several magazines and books spanning the globe, and primarily produces handcrafted and one-of-a-kind work. The unveiling of the bike will take place at 3:45 pm on the viewing veranda.
This bike represents the 5th annual bike raffle fundraiser sponsored by the Crazy Horse Memorial Foundation. The exclusive bike will be on display in the Visitor Center. Tickets are one for $20 or three for $50. They may be purchased at the Memorial or by calling 605.673.4681.
The winning ticket will be drawn on Sept. 6, 2010, celebrating what would have been sculptor Korczak Ziolkowski’s 102nd birthday.
Following the bike presentation, visitors will be able to witness one of the biggest blasts of the season, removing 2,450 tons of rock off the mountain.
