Paul Yaffe Cancer Charity Bike Build

WanaRyd Motorcycle recently introduced their truly unique line of Stark-line wheels and is has created a new alliance with Paul Yaffe, President of Bagger Nation.

Yaffe, one of the world’s most famous custom bike builders is currently building a custom bagger for the “Casting for Recovery Foundation,” the unique brainchild of a breast cancer reconstructive surgeon and a professional fly fisher.

Paul Yaffe says: “I was looking for a set of interesting wheels and came across the Starkline Adrenaline wheel from WanaRyd Motorcycle…it’s perfect for my new build for the breast cancer charity.”

Paul chose the Starkline Adrenaline, a unique 5-spoke 3D wheel that’s part of their Stark-line Series…a new premium line of 3D forged one-piece billet wheels. The Stark-line Series features a revolutionary new finish that is totally unique and proprietary to WanaRyd Motorcycle. Stark-line wheels have to be 3D machined, than polished, black powder coated and then re-machined a final time…and still are offered at an affordable price.

Paul Yaffe says: “The build will be covered on my web site, Facebook and will also be a cover feature in a national magazine and I’ll link the sponsor to our Bagger Nation web site which gets huge traffic.”

“I’m also putting a different set of WanaRyd Motorcycle’s Starkline wheels on my personal bike which I’ve been working on for the last 18 months due to their unique look.”

Paul will be unveiling is new personal ride soon so watch for it.

The “Casting for Recovery Foundation” began as a local grassroots group with a big heart and an original national vision, and quickly received endorsements from medical and psycho-social experts for its innovative healing program model while at the same time provoking intense interest by national media.

They provide an opportunity for women whose lives have been profoundly affected by the disease to gather in a natural setting and learn the sport of fly fishing. Casting for Recovery was founded on the principles that the natural world is a healing force and that cancer survivors deserve one weekend – free of charge and free of the stresses from medical treatment, home, or workplace – to experience something new and challenging while enjoying beautiful surroundings within an intimate, safe, and nurturing structure.

This bike once finished will be featured in several national magazines as well as Paul’s Facebook page, Bagger Nation’s Facebook page, Bagger Nation’s website and will feature several articles throughout the build. This bike will be featured at the event Bikers for Boobies where they raise money for the Casting for Recovery Foundation. 100% of all proceeds from this bike will be handed over to The Castings For Recovery Foundation so that they can continue to do good things for women recovering from breast cancer. Paul and his lovely wife Suzie Q have been involved with this organization for three years now.

WanaRyd Motorcycle was started over 9 years ago and has been committed to producing cutting-edge forged one-piece billet wheels of the highest quality. Colton Curtiss, president of WanaRyd Motorcycle stated, “All Stark-line wheels come with a lifetime structural warranty and a 2 year chrome warranty. We have doubled the warranty of most of the wheel companies in the industry to safeguard riders against some of nature’s toughest forces that could potentially damage wheels.

Colton Curtiss says: “We are honored to be working with Paul Yaffe on his charity bike project as well as his personal bike and are currently discussing various new business opportunities with Paul.”

The Stark-line Series offers 6 different wheel designs as well as matching rotors in 3 different styles and sizes and matching pulleys (including Cush drives which most other wheel companies don’t offer) and are available for all 1984-Present Harley-Davidson models, many Victory models as well as other metric cruisers.
