ICED EARTH mainman Jon Schaffer is auctioning off his Harley-Davidson Night Train motorcycle via eBay. The auction, which has a starting bid of $20,000, ends September 11.
Says Schaffer: "The bike is sitting in their showroom right now. This is a bike that I customized myself and due to my back problems it's been sitting in my living room because I was in denial about parting with it.
"Anyway, the time has come to face the reality that touring bikes with windshields are my destiny as a biker.
"This bike was also photographed in certain versions of the 'Horror Show' CD, albeit with a different paint job. It's absolutely cherry and has only 1995 miles. The engine isn't even broken in yet! The reason behind auctioning it off instead of selling it the normal way is that we want to give a percentage of the proceeds to a charity that will help our troops whose families are struggling financially here at home."
The bike can be trucked and dropped off anywhere in the continental USA. The winning bidder will also be responsible for the cost of delivery of the bike which will be determined at the end of auction and cost will vary depending on what part of the country it will be shipped to.
