Share this post

Help support the Wounded Warrior Project with a special event this weekend at Harley-Davidson of Valparaiso.  According to the Duneland Chapter of Harley Owners Group or "HOG," San Diego resident, and armed services veteran, Brian Bieber is traveling across the country on a restored, WWII era WLA 45 Solo Harley-Davidson Military motorcycle, at his own expense, to collect money to donate to the Wounded Warrior Project.
Retired Command Sgt.Major of the United States Army, William "Chip" Ostenberg says over the course of the contract, 90,000 WL Solo bikes were manufactured with 60,000 going to U.S. Forces and another 30,000 to our allies during World War II.  The "A" in the model number designates a bike destined to the Army.  Models were also distributed to the Navy, with the only difference in that they were painted Navy Grey, according to Ostenberg.
 
Beiber's Facebook Page says he has raised almost 13-thousand dollars toward his 45-thousand dollar goal.  The motorcyclist says he hopes to convince 45-hundred people to donate ten dollars each, because he said that even a little will go a long way to help disabled men and women who have proudly served their country.

The "WLA Charity Ride" is scheduled to arrive at the American Legion Post in Valparaiso at 9 a.m. Sunday and from there will be escorted to the Harley-Davidson Dealership located at 1151 Morthland Dr. (off US-30).

Hot dogs and pop will be available both on Saturday and Sunday with all proceeds going to the Wounder Warrior Project.  To follow Beiber's charity ride progress visit his Facebook page at:  https://www.facebook.com/WLAAcrossUSA
