Brough Rebuild Charity Fundraiser Plan
Use crowd-funding to raise some money to buy a barn-find Brough Superior, rebuild it, then sell it to raise even more money for charity. Motorcycle Outreach have a cunning plan...
Motorcycle Outreach, the UK charity which supports motorcycle based health care transport projects in developing countries, has launched a fundraising project with a difference.
Their ambition is to buy a virtually derelict Brough motorcycle at auction, restore it to its former glory and sell it, ploughing the profits back into the charity.
With sufficient funds, the charity hopes to bid successfully on one of the recently discovered barn-find ‘Bodmin Brough’ motorcycles when they are auctioned by Bonhams on April 24th. A successful restoration and re-auction could potentially unlock tens of thousands of pounds for Motorcycle Outreach’s charitable work introducing effective healthcare delivery in remote areas of developing countries such as Indonesia and Tanzania.
Simon Dufton, Director of Motorcycle Outreach, said: “The restoration potential for any of these bikes means that this is not just a hopeful project - it is a project based upon sound history of the assets involved alongside the time-proven skills of our restorer Craig Carey-Clinch.” Craig, also a Director of Motorcycle Outreach and a well-known motorcycle industry figure, already has a strong track record of restoring classic motorcycles.
Simon continued; “All it takes is time and a good motorcycle restorer. We have both! What we now need is the funding to make this project happen .... and that is why we are launching this Crowdfunding appeal - we believe that it will be possible to generate a strong return from this project, but we can only realise its ambition if we get support.”
