Garwood Custom Cycles is set to unveil a custom Susan G. Komen for the Cure motorcycle at the Progressive International Motorcycle Show in Daytona, on Wednesday, March 9, to help raise awareness and funds for the fight against breast cancer.

This special unveiling will take place in the Women Ride experience, on the show floor. The custom Kawasaki 636 will remain on display at the show through Saturday, March 12, at the Ocean Center in Daytona Beach.

After the show, the bike will tour the country to continue to raise awareness and funds to benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

Additionally, Garwood Custom Cycles will unveil a second custom bike at the Progressive International Motorcycle Shows on Friday, March 11, in the Women Ride experience.
