October 21, 2007 Built by well-known motorcycle builder Rick “Big Rick” Hoffman, the customized “GEICO Chopper” will be auctioned online for the benefit of children’s charities with bids opening on October 22.

Currently on tour across the U.S., the GEICO Chopper has a 113-inch motor and a six-speed transmission with a digital readout speedometer.

The online auction is an outgrowth of “Bikers for Tykes,” the annual motorcycle rally and family fun fair created by GEICO and other community partners in 2006. Contributions from the event go to several childrens’ charities, including NIH Children’s Charities and Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Washington.
