modJOBS custom Yamaha V Star 950

For season 2, modJOBS enlisted Jessica Prokup to put together a one-of-a-kind Yamaha V Star 950 Cruiser with the help of celebrity bike builder Jay Lossa and Last Comic Standing winner Alonzo Bodden. Jessica hand-picked and helped install each custom part with the goal of creating a “custom bagger” that would make any owner proud each time he or she throws a leg over the saddle.

Rising to the challenge, Jessica selected a worthy set of aftermarket parts for the Yamaha cruiser and unveiled the bike at the Petersen Museum in Los Angeles. Now the bike is being auctioned on eBay. 100 percent of the proceeds goes to benefit the National Motorcycle Safety Fund.
