Custom Guru bikes donated to charity

MONTREAL (BRAIN) — Guru Cycles has donated two "ultra-custom" Photon Superlight complete bikes to a Canadian charity.

The bikes were painted to resemble the CF-18 Hornet Fighter used by the Royal Canadian Air Force, and will be ridden in the 1,000 km Grand Defi Pierre Lavoie, which crosses Quebec from June 12-15. After the ride, the bikes will be auctioned, with proceeds to benefit the Canadian Forces Base Bagotville charity trust fund.

The bikes have a custom paint job and machined headbadge that holds a 90th anniversary RCAF coin.

"The opportunity to work directly with CFB Bagotville officers was an ideal situation to demonstrate our manufacturing abilities, while giving back to our troops and the communities," said Ted Matthews, Guru's CEO.
