In Charlie's memory, and in the spirit of the great thing he liked to call Motorsickilism, this incredible handcrafted 1961 Panhead Chopper is being raffled for $20 per chance or 6 opportunities for $100. On Friday, August 13, 2021, one lucky winner will be selected randomly through a third-party source to be the caretaker of Charlie’s legacy. 100% of the proceeds will go directly to the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum in Charlie's honor. It is the perfect way to end this story, maybe the only one that makes sense in the wake of such a tragic loss. Help put Charlie into the history books for one last great accomplishment.
This bike was originally built by an outstanding group including Mondo Porras of Denver's Choppers, Steve Massicotte and Kyle Brewer of Paughco, Panhead Billy at B&B Racing and, Dennis SanFelipo with many others contributing along the way. Originally this bike was meant to be part of the legend of the most perfect chopper ever built. After Charlie's premier motion picture effort in “Rebels On The Highway,” creator Brechtel set his sights on the second film derived from our culture titled “Rough Boys.” This time the storyline would reveal a host of clues throughout the film that would lead moviegoers on a scavenger hunt that would see one lucky winner end up with the Golden Pan and $10,000 cash. Some swore they had seen it; others doubted it existed; however, in the quest for it, the very bike you see before you was built. Unfortunately before finishing the movie project, Charlie was tragically taken from this world.
