Garwood Custom Cycles in Lexington, N.C., has created a bike in cooperation with the North Carolina Triad Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure to help raise funds.

The shop has been in business for 15 years and has built tribute bikes before. But this one has a decidedly feminine look.

“This year we wanted to do something different,” consultant Steven Garwood told The Dispatch. “We wanted to do something feminine but would have appeal to everyone.”

The motorcycle was unveiled during Daytona Bike Week, at the Progressive International Motorcycle Show at Ocean Center. To view the bike, click here.

The 2006 Kawasaki 636 has a custom paint job that's charcoal gray with candy pink, white and silver accents. The seat of the bike sports the words “Global Mission, Local Impact.” The paint job was done by Neyon out of Trinity while the custom seat was designed by Shawn's Custom Seats of High Point. Other features include Two Brothers exhaust with custom engraving, a 240-wide tire kit, chrome accessories and an ultra-bright pink light kit, Garwood says.

The bike will be on tour with the shop mostly around the state until October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Then it goes to auction to benefit the Triad Affiliate of Komen. Among its display stops will be the 12th Annual Susan G. Komen NC Triad Race for the Cure fundraising walk/run May 7 in Winston-Salem.
