£180raised of £200 target by 7 supporters

Weʼre raising £200 to help get my brothers and my motorcycle back on the road

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


I have decided to set up this page to try and raise funds to get my brothers and my CB500‘s back on the road. As some of you who know me will already know, I had 3 motorcycles stolen from my property earlier this year, but for those who don’t you can read the Northern Echo news report here. My friends know how long I have had mine and the amount of time and money I have spent getting her to the condition she was pre theft, and we have been through a lot over the years.

Since recovering the bikes, I have decided that I won’t be beaten and will rebuild her again. I have already spent a lot more than my target but as a hard working father of 3, I literally cannot stretch anymore.

Any money raised will be used to buy parts or pay for services required to complete the rebuild. Up to this point I have funded everything myself and not asked for help, but I just cannot do this alone. Anything raised will be thankfully received and if anyone can support with services such as powder coating or hard chroming, it would be a massive help.

I am going to look into writing a blog/vlog to keep people updated with the rebuild progress and will add that to this page.

Thank you for taking the time to read my story.
