SKIL lists custom SKILSAW inspired chopper
We’re not always about the four-wheeled vehicles here at eBay Motors, so here’s a very special listing for the eBay Motorscommunity to watch. SKIL Tools recently celebrated the 75th anniversary of the Worm Drive SKILSAW. Considered by many to be “the saw that built America”, SKIL decided to go bigger than just marking the occasion, celebrating the SKILSAW’s anniversary in style by commissioning a pair of custom choppers from Paul Teutul Jr. and the team at Paul Jr. Designs. One was a show chopper unveiled earlier this year in Las Vegas, and the other is a daily rider bike. Together they were featured at over 60 events all over the West this summer, including this year’s Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.
Starting September 4th, the daily rider Paul Jr. Designs SKILSAW-inspired chopper will be listed for auction on eBay Motors. Bidding starts at $25,000 and will run for ten days, closing on September 14th. T
Starting at such a price makes the SKILSAW chopper a big-ticket item for sure, but the winning bidder isn’t just buying a new toy. One hundred percent of the auction’s proceeds will go to benefit The Home Depot Foundation, which is dedicated to ensuring that every veteran has a safe place to call home through the repair and remodeling of veteran’s homes and facilities. Beginning in 2011, the Foundation set out to raise and spend $30 million toward this goal over a three year period. So not only does the auction winner get a hot Paul Jr. Designs chopper, but they get to make a huge impact in the lives of the American heroes who put everything on the line for the rest of us.
This is a cool auction on a great bike for an amazing cause. Let’s get as many bids as possible and see what the eBay Motors motorcycle fans can do to help our veterans. Start bidding early on September 4th, and be sure to share the auction with anyone who you think would be interested!
