1999 Royce Union Torch

Henrys Prized Royce Union Torch

I gave this bike to my brother in June of 2010. I had picked it up in a package deal and if it wasnt for Henry I wouldnt be in this hobby anyway. He wanted a bike,so in my way of saying thanks,I let him pick any bike from my collection. He picked this one because he loved the colors on it.
 
I lost my brother Henry to cancer on May 8th 2012,and I had posession of his bike. It had some issues I was fixing for him,so I went ahead and finished it and plan to keep my brothers bike forever. I added his favorite wheels which are tuff mags,and orange Kenda tires. It is otherwise all original.
 
We are holding a ride localy,July 8th of 2012 and I plan to have all the local riders sign the bike in tribute,and from there the bike will be shown at local shows,etc. This bike means alot to me as u can see,so it will never leave my side.

I love you,forever in my heart!

It turned out great Dale. I did really get to meet Henry but it sounds like he was a real cool and nice guy.

Re: 1999 Royce Union Torch

A more meaningful bike there might not be. I wish I could favorite this more than once.


Please bear with my ignorance in regards to BMX. I am learning on the fly thanks to you fine folks!
