It certainly takes all kinds! [lastfm]Taylor Swift[/lastfm], [lastfm]Tim McGraw[/lastfm], [lastfm]Dolly Parton[/lastfm] and many more country artists autographed a motorcycle and trailer that were to be auctioned to benefit the Lexington affiliate of Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure®. This 2010 Harley-Davidson Sportster and trailer were reportedly stolen during the weekend.
The pink custom painted motorcycle, which was locked inside the trailer, was secured by chains and had been parked in the organization’s parking lot in the Hamburg area. Employees returning to work Monday morning noticed it was missing and contacted police.
Executive Director, Penny Gilbert said the bike was valued at $15,000 without the custom paint job and autographs. The trailer was valued at $5,000. Both had been donated by Wildcat Harley-Davidson of London.
“We had really hoped to achieve about $100,000” by auctioning the items before the foundation’s Race for the Cure on October 16th, Gilbert said. “We’ve missed that opportunity now.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Lexington police department.
