2017 HWH Motorcycle Rebuild Project is Underway!

Abbott House girls working to leave a “Legacy” behind

This year’s Helping With Horsepower bike rebuild project has started. Indian Motorcycle graciously donated a 2015 Indian Scout to be this year’s project. Pam Kermisch of Polaris Industries, Inc. said “Indian Motorcycle is proud to support Helping with Horsepower. We are excited to see the transformation of the Indian Scout and hear the stories about how the experience helped the young women involved. Of course, we’re also looking forward to the Indian Scout helping to raise big funds for the Abbott House.”

The girls have named the bike “Legacy” and determined that “Legacy” will have a patriotic design. The young lady who created the bike name said “I have always wanted to leave a legacy behind, and I was thinking the bike would be legacy for all of the girls who have been at the Abbott House.”  Laura Klock, HWH director and project coordinator, has ‘set up shop’ in the Abbott House.  The girls have learned about the tools they will use to help Legacy heal.  They are in the process of selecting Legacy’s new look including new handle bars, fenders, and the seat.  To purchase tickets for Legacy click here.
