Members of the Los Angeles Kings professional hockey team have autographed parts of the Kings Ice Bike, a specially-created, -designed and -customized motorcycle, that will be auctioned next month at the Tip-A-King annual charity event, presented by DISC Spine and Sports Center near Marina del Rey.
The Kings players signed the Ice Bike, a 2008 Yamaha Star Raider, at the Toyota Training Center in El Segundo Wednesday, January 23rd.
The one-of-a-kind motorcycle will be auctioned at the Tip-A-King event Sunday, February 24th, at Universal Studios in Hollywood, with proceeds benefiting the Kings Care Foundation.
Inspired by the custom chopper movement, the motorcycle is loaded with horsepower, superior rider comfort and plenty of chrome, according to event organizers.
Kings graphics are displayed throughout the paint on the bike, including hockey pucks streaking across the ice. The bike was painted by Jim Ogawa of Ogawa Designs, who has won awards for his designs.
The custom performance cruiser was donated by Dr. Robert S. Bray, Jr. and DISC Spine and Sports Center, as well as Yamaha 99. DISC is the official medical center of the Kings.
