2009 Winner

The 2009 contest is over. Congratulations to the winner!

James Abbot
Kailu, Hawaii

A beautiful P Series 93-inch engine from S&S Cycles, this machine has plenty of power. The 4-speed transmission is a Rev-Tech from Custom Chrome and is connected to the engine by a Primo belt drive and Rivera Pro clutch. Ted’s V-Twin donated the Panhead replica frame.

The Museum offers thanks to all manufacturers who generously donated parts to build this machine: Paughco donated the exhaust pipes while Jammer threw in the primary parts and Performance Machine donated hand controls and brakes. Pac-Kit Saddlebags donated a set of replica Panhead leather saddlebags. Wires Plus donated the wiring components, Auto Gem the gem lights and baby bullets and Coker, the tires. Custom Chrome also donated the starter, alternator and belt drive while Bikers Choice donated the front end and sheet metal.

Originally from South Carolina, James has lived in Hawaii since 1971. A former medic in the Navy, he now works for the Marine Corp. In early November, he purchased six tickets for the museum raffle, and he forgot about them. That was until the call from Carstensen came through.

The Museum conducts the annual raffle program as a fundraiser. It’s a strong contributor to annual revenues, so we hope you will continue to donate for a chance to win. Our thanks to everyone who signed up for the raffle bike. In its 21st year, the 2010 National Motorcycle Museum Raffle Bike is a 2010 Custom Knucklehead.
