Former pro motocrosser Chris Ridgway is raising money for Limbs For Life, the foundation that supplied him with what he needed to win races after he had his leg removed. “I’m trying to sell $100 raffle tickets for a 1953 Porsche 356,” Chris told us. “Only 2,000 tickets will be sold in total, but as of now, we are not reaching that goal. The drawing is this Saturday. If we reach the 2,000-ticket limit, the Limbs For Life Foundation will literally put 93 people back on their feet with the prosthetics they need. It’s such a rad program and we really need help to spread the word. Time is running out for us!”

Seeing a few photos of vintage bikes and super clean restorations, got me searching around on ebay and like type "for sale sites", it's amazing what you can find. I am in the middle of restoring my 1995 CR 125 to replicate the factory bike of 1996. It's a fun project, you'd be surprised what exist for bikes parts wise and best of all you can throw your leg over it and ride at the end of the day. Ultimately that's what it's about, going out and riding you motorcycle. If you can't tell I am a Honda fan, here is my bike and a few others that inspire me.
