Chapter 758 of The Military Order of the Purple Heart Commander Leon Roy was given the above vintage 1976 Harley-Davidson Shovelhead bike for the Florida Department in February 2009. The bike was presented to Commander Roy at “The Biker Fusion Party” during the 2009 Bike Week in Daytona Beach, FL. Biker Fusion is a private party held to raise money for Soldiers’ Angels. The party was one of several fundraising events held to benefit Soldiers’ Angels projects for wounded Soldiers. The Biker Fusion Party was coordinated by R & R Promotions Owner Carrie Repp, of Ft. Lauderdale, who worked with Commander Bill Everett of Chapter 778 (Pensacola, FL) to make the presentation possible.

This vintage 1976 Harley-Davidson bike was first purchased by an Army Medic, who sold the bike when he was deployed in support of the War on Terror. The bike was then purchased by the donor for his son and named “Uncle Sam”. The name has stuck. The bike was later donated to Billy Lane, of Chopper’s Inc., who refurbished it and in turn donated the bike to Soldiers’ Angels with the stipulation that it be presented to a Vietnam Combat Wounded Veteran from the State of Florida.
