MIND Charity Build

Naked Speed will be building a custom motorcycle which will be auctioned by sealed bids (event TBC) once complete with all proceeds going to the charity MIND.

We’re looking for any companies who might like to get involved, from funding some of the build to donating parts. We’re also looking for anyone who has an old bike which could be used as a donor, and/or some parts they would like to see go to a worthy cause. Many people don’t have any motorcycle parts to donate so we have also created a Just Giving page, with these donations we will purchase any parts that maybe required.

Please follow the blog below to keep informed of the progress, also follow us in Facebook and Instagram
