Actor Tom Arnold will be auctioning off a very special motorcycle next month for a couple of very special charities.
The 49-year-old actor will join fellow motorcycle enthusiasts at the Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum in Pickerington, Ohio, over the next two days to celebrate the grand opening of the Museum’s latest exhibit, “MotoStars: Celebrities and Motorcycles.”
The exhibition will include over 100 of the America’s most passionate celebrity motorbike enthusiasts, their motorcycles and personal memorabilia, and one of the most talked-about items on display is a 2008 Victory Vision Street motorcycle commissioned by Arnold for a charity auction to be held on eBay next month. The bike was designed by special effects wizard Stan Winston, who passed away earlier this month. The design of the bike was inspired by the current box office hit Iron Man – the last movie Winston worked on.
Proceeds from the auction will go to two of Arnold’s favorite charities, Camp del Corazon and Operation Homefront, and the motorcycle will remain on display in “MotoStars” until the winning bidder takes it home in August.
