John Varvatos has teamed up with The Black Motorcycles to create a one of a kind custom fabricated 1980 CB750c Cafe Racer Motorcycle. The Custom John Varvatos Edition Café Racer (Series 1000 model) was specially crafted to help raise funds for the non-profit organization Road Recovery to reach 1,000 at-risk teens through its outreach programs. The custom motorcycle was unveiled by John Varvatos and The Black Motorcycles at a private event on June 26, 2014, sponsored by Dime City Cycles and L7 Technology Partners at the JV Bowery Boutique in New York City. The motorcycle unveiling was presented to a packed house of media, motorcycle enthusiasts, and taste-makers. The JV Café Racer will remain on display at the JV Bowery Boutique until July 10, 2014. The #JVCafeRacer has an estimated value of $30,000 and is available for bidding here until July 10, 2014, with all proceeds supporting the non-profit organization Road Recovery who are in dire need of financial support for their youth programs.
Road Recovery is dedicated to helping at-risk youth by harnessing the influence of entertainment industry professionals who have confronted similar crises and now wish to share their experience, knowledge and resources by collaborating with young people to create and present live-concert events and recording projects. Music professionals – executives, managers, techies, roadies, superstars, agents – including such entertainment notables as Slash, Denis Leary, Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, and many more. Since 1998, Road Recovery has touched the lives of over 50,000 young people…and still counting!
