PORTLAND, Ore. (BRAIN) — Carbon fiber frame repair business Ruckus Composites will be raffling some leftover repaired frames to benefit charities.

The company said it often has a "dead pile" of broken frames that are dropped off and never picked up by their owners. 

"For several years we have been wondering what to do with these lost souls. This year we cracked the code," the company said in an announcement this week.

Ruckus will repair and paint these frames and raffle or auction them to raise money and awareness for causes the company believes in.

The first two frames to be raffled will support Presented By Let's Race Bikes, an Oregon-based project dedicated to supporting and enabling elite female cyclists to compete on a national level. 

Both frames being raffled are painted with Ruckus and PBLRB logos. The frames carry Ruckus' usual five-year warranty. Raffle tickets are $25 each or three for $60.

Raffle tickets can be purchased on the PBLRB website
