The Grand Ole Opry has partnered with Lynnco Custom Cycles on the creation of a custom-made motorcycle, the OPRY STAR. This one-of-a-kind bike will be auctioned online in October to benefit the Opry Trust Fund and the Lynn Jones Foundation.
About the OPRY STAR:
The Harley Davidson Fatboy custom-made bike with Daisy Cutter exhaust pipe and chrome wheels has an 88 cubic engine with 1450 cc, a single swing arm design, custom stretched fuel tank and rear fender, and an air leveler system. The bike’s paint design features iconic Opry imagery created by artist Chris Cruz.
About the Opry Trust Fund:
The Opry Trust Fund was formed in 1965, the Opry’s 40th birthday, by Opry management as a means to help those in the country music industry who have fallen on hard times. The purpose of the fund is to give financial assistance in time of need, emergency, or catastrophe to people who were or are actively engaged in country music. Most often, disbursements help pay medical bills and living expenses for people that are undergoing medical care and are unable to work. Money to support the Opry Trust Fund comes from proceeds from the annual benefit show held during CMA Music Festival Week, as well as donations from other organizations and individuals.
About Lynn Jones Foundation:
The Lynn Jones Foundation was established 2005 and is a 501.c.3 company. The Foundation was established to give a "hand up" to local youth participating in various programs. Some of the organizations sponsored include City of Hope Foundation, YMCA Capital Fund, YMCA YCAP Program, Jr. Achievement, Boys & Girls Club, MDA, Warrior Foundation, Opry Trust Fund, Mary Ellen Foundation, IAFF Burn Foundation, 100 Black Men Organization and school scholarships.
