Victory Motorcycles and Klock Werks Kustom Cycles Help At-Risk YouthHelping with Horsepower (HWH), a non-profit organization founded by Klock Werks Kustom Cycles in South Dakota, works to promote motorcycle-related charity around the nation. HWH’s Bike Rebuild Program helps kids stay in school and find a new passion by giving them hands-on experience working on motorcycles. However, the Bike Rebuild Program at Pine Bush High School in Pine Bush, NY, got an especially exciting opportunity to build a bike for a land speed record attempt. A Victory Hammer (supplied by Victory) was modified by Lloyd Greer of Lloyd’z Motor Workz with the help of local students who were previously at risk of dropping out of school. The bike’s Freedom 106 engine was equipped with a ProCharger B-1 supercharger and now pumps out over 200 horsepower.

The Hammer then traveled down to the Bonneville Salt Flats where it set the 2014 AMA Bonneville National M-BG/2000 Record of 173.321 mph. Steve Menneto, Polaris’ Vice President of Motorcycles says, “We are proud to be part of this special program. Using Victory motorcycles to teach youth the value of hard work and achieving goals is a terrific way to contribute to the future.”
