The Rolling Thunder Military Bike Tribute was unveiled at the 25th Anniversary of The Rolling Thunder’s 2012 Rally in Washington, D.C. Inspired by Jay’s Army Bike which received enormous attention over the years, a custom bike build project to commemorate the 25th year of Rolling Thunder was launched.Jay selected four of the most talented builders to complete the tribute to each military branch;
Air Force Tribute Bike by Billy Lane
Navy Tribute Bike by Dan Holdsworth
Marine Tribute Bike by Brigette Bouget
Coast Guard Tribute Bike by Mike Thomas
Army Tribute Bike by Jay Allen
The Tribute Bikes have been so well received by onlookers, veterans, servicemen and servicewomen that Jay’s goal is to take these tribute bikes on the road to create AWARENESS at the largest rallies in the world, to give GRATITUDE to those currently serving by touring U.S. Bases at home and abroad and HEALING to the residents at our Veterans hospitals across this country.
