More info, thank yous, and pictures to come but for now...


This year (2006) we raised 1,377 pounds of food and $4,152 cash for The Food Bank!
Although last year's (2005) crappy weather meant more 4-wheels with food donations (1,857 lbs), 
we blew away last year's cash donations of $1,700 by a long shot.
This was our best year ever!
We had 168 bikes on the run and over 366 sign-ins.
I would imagine there were close to 500 people at the party!
The weather was perfect and the scenic run was a smooth & enjoyable thanks to The Springville Travelers! 
Be-Arthur and The Bar King Spiders rocked the house and the bike show was sweet!

Thank you to Buffalo Cigarettes for donating our Mini-Chopper!
Custom Chameleon Painted by First Place Finishes 
and Purchased from Powersports Unlimited
(Buffalo Cigs are available at Native Pride and First American Tobacco)


The Food Bank of WNY and Cyberspokes would also like to thank the following
Cash Donation Sponsors 2006
$600 - Kantor & Godwin Motorcycle Accident Attorneys
$100 - Red Knights NY Chapter 21 Motorcycle Club
$100 - V-Twin Cycles  
$100 - Dragonz Lair Custom Cycles - Buffalo Choppers 

$60 - First Place Finishes raffle proceeds
      - The Springville Travelers coffee & donut service at Spider Grove

We would also like to thank the fine establishments who have hosted our Food Bank event:
Milligans Pub (2005), East Eden Tavern (2004), Lakeview Landmark (2002-2003), and The Seven Bar (2001).
Please support these biker-friendly bars and restaurants!
Don't forget, there are plenty of places out there that just want to jump on the "biker bandwagon" to take your money, but many of them (rhymes with hodge-podge) could care less about supporting the cause.
Nuff said?

Cyberspokes County Choppers Show

"Cyberspokes County Choppers Show":  No judging or trophies...  just a few select bikes on display at the Benefit Party for everyone to drool over.  What makes this show so unique is the heavy emphasis and priority which will be put on show-casing work done by local Western New York craftsmen and motorcycle shops. This is a special invitation to bike owners and select WNY motorcycle dealers, repair shops, builders, painters, and customizers. 
Bikes will be on display from  First Place Finishes, Harley Happening at The Hollywood, The Hog Farm, V-Twin Cycles, Little Dick's Customs, Dragon's Lair Custom Cycles-Buffalo Choppers, Mike Jackson, and more!

Space is very limited!  Show your pride & joy! AND support a great cause.  If you are interested call Dave O at 716-649-0797 ASAP!  
**You can also access the printable BIKE SHOW APPLICATION.

    Friends of the Hollywood Theater will unveil the commemorative Harley Happening motorcycle, a 2006 Harley-Davidson Dyna Street Bob courtesy of Gowanda Harley-Davidson. All-new for 2006, Harley-Davidson designed the Street Bob to be a bare-knuckled "bobbed" motorcycle straight from the post-World War II era. Minimalist styling and features are complemented by subtle ghost white comedy and tragedy masks airbrushed (by Carl Cain at Hog-N-Air in Fredonia) on the gloss black fuel tank.
