MEDFORD, Ore. — Thunderstruck Bikes is helping a disabled veteran regain his mobility. Sgt. Brian Mast is flying into Medford on Sunday to meet with the bike shop and tailor the motorcycle to his specific needs. The Harley Davidson motorcycle was donated by Sgt. Mast’s hometown in Florida.
Thunderstruck Bikes is planning on turning the motorcycle into a three wheeler. The plan is to put on bigger tires, kick out the front end of the bike and paint it in wild colors.
Owner Mark Daley said the biggest modification will be changing the controls to the handle bars for Sgt. Mast who is a double amputee.
This is not the first time Daley has modified motorcycles. He said it is a way he can give back for veterans serving the United States overseas.
“He went over there to put everything on the line for us to over here doing what we want to do or feel free we can do to give us our freedom so for me it’s just a little bit to give back to try to help him be able to have his freedom back,” Daley said.
Daley said the goal is to give Sgt. Mast the ability to control everything on the bike with his hands including the brakes and shifting gears.
