Ride for Kids Honda CB1100 Raffle Bike Makes its IMS Rounds

Ride for Kids Honda CB1100 Raffle Bike at Chicago IMSRide for Kids is a national series of motorcycle charity events that raise awareness and funds for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation, the world’s largest nonprofit funder of research into one of the deadliest forms of childhood cancer.

The Ride for Kids program also funds free educational resources and college scholarships for brain tumor survivors. More than 28,000 children in the United States are living with the diagnosis of a brain tumor, and 13 more cases are identified each day.

This year’s fundraising features the chance to win the Ride for Kids/Cycle World project bike created by AIP Speed. They started with a stock 2014 Honda CB1100, donated by American Honda, and customized it to honor GP champion Freddie Spencer. The AIP team modeled its design after the CB750 and CB900 that Spencer raced for Honda in the early 1980s.

The modern but nostalgic project bike has a silver and blue paint scheme and the Ride for Kids logo. It features a braced swingarm, custom velocity stacks, carbon wheels and unique bodywork, as well as a matching helmet.

The Ride for Kids/Cycle World project bike was on display at this weekend’s International Motorcycle Show in Chicago, and will visit others in the future. Tickets will be available at the Ride for Kids booth at the show or make a donation online. Drawing tickets are one for $5 or five for $20. Some restrictions apply. See the official rules for more details.

American Honda is the presenting sponsor of Ride for Kids. Other national supporters include GEICO and Cycle World magazine. Other contributors include Arai Helmets, BrakeTech, BST, DynoJet, Öhlins-USA, ProLine Wraps, Spielger Performance Parts, Gered Poepke at Valley Kustoms and Yoshimura R&D. Their contributions include:

• Arai Helmets donated a Corsair V helmet, the same type of helmet that Spencer wore.

• BrakeTech’s CBR600RR brakes were customized to fit the CB1100.

• Carbon wheels from BST are strong but lightweight for better handling.

• The DynoJet Power Commander V fuel injection module helps with tuning, and the quick shifter gives the race bike accurate shifts.

• Piggyback, multi-adjustable rear shocks from Öhlins-USA offer the most support for road racing.

• ProLine Wraps donated the decals for the bike.

• Bars from Spiegler Performance Parts have the correct superbike bend.

• The beautiful metal flake paint job is by Gered Poepke at Valley Kustoms.

• Yoshimura R&D’s exhaust pipe has the right styling for a 1980s superbike.
