Volunteers Assemble Bikes

Posted: Updated:

Magic City Harley-Davidson just received a large shipment of bikes, but they aren't the type you'll see riding down the highway.

In fact, the 500 Huffy bicycles are currently being assembled by volunteers in memory of Daysun Gross after he died in an automobile accident in 2002.

The event was started by Gross' uncle, Bob Gross, in hopes to give kids new bikes.

Gross will distribute the bikes along with coats and backpacks at the Roosevelt Park Zoo.

This is the 10th year Gross will distribute the free bikes.

Connie Sundby of Harley Davidson is helping build the bikes for the big day and says Gross is fulfilling a demand in the Minot community.

(Connie Sundby, Magic City Harley Davidson)"He's kinda covering all of the areas there with all of the needs, so hopefully the kids that need it will be there and that it will fill that need for them and they can pay it forward."

The bikes will be given away along with backpacks and coats at Roosevelt Zoo on August 24th.

The items are first come, first served.
