“Second Chances” was chosen as the name for these two bikes because the Abbott House girls said, “We can all relate. We are torn down, emotions tangled, abandoned, but then we get saved, given another chance to rebuild ourselves, to be stronger than before, just like these bikes.”. Two bikes, designed and given away as a set, are a reminder to the Abbott House girls and to the world, that we are never alone.
Founder, Laura Klock, helps at-risk youth to repair and customize motorcycles, completely transforming them from something “broken” into something amazing, just like they are doing in their lives in treatment centers and other outreach centers and programs. This program utilizes a motorcycle as an effective tool to teach life lessons – teamwork, self-confidence, and problem solving to highlight a few – through hands-on/project-based learning and instruction. During classroom time, the kids identify desired changes, enter name and paint design ideas into a contest, choose the replacement parts for the motorcycle, learn basic tools, remove the damaged parts, and re-assemble, under direction of a volunteer facilitator. Additional discussion during class time includes basic marketing topics and the importance and impact of sponsorship. When the transformed motorcycle is complete, it is usually raffled as a fundraiser for the charity.
Thanks to Helping With Horsepower and the Abbott House girls for choosing a few RSD parts to breathe new life into these bikes. We commend Laura for helping out her local community and doing it with motorcycles is even better.
