Motorcycle Missions Builds Custom Strider for the 2019 Flying Piston Benefit
Why Motorcycle Missions builds custom Strider? Because the non-profit has been a beneficiary of The Flying Piston Benefit for several years so when tiny Strider Customs became part of the program, the MM Team wanted to participate. With a common objective, a shop full of tools, and enough comedic relief among them, there is no task the MM team can’t accomplish.
Motorcycle Missions, a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation, helps veterans and first responders who deal with PTS(D) and suicidal ideation find hope and healing through motorcycles.
