Tanks for Troops FTR 1200 Custom Tank Auction is Live

Tanks for Troops raised $30,000 for charity in its previous incarnations. This year, Carey Hart and The Good Ride are aiming to surpass that mark, bringing even more funds raised to support United States military veterans and military families who may suffer from physical or mental challenges and who are in need of financial support and additional resources.

Bidding for Tanks for Troops went live on Thursday, January 9 (here), and it ends promptly at 9pm on January 16. With 24 Indian Motorcycle tank covers designed by various artists, these works of art range in style and inspirations from tattoos and motorsports to fine art and military-inspired pieces. Among the artists participating is Carey’s eight-year-old daughter Willow Hart, who designed her own Indian tank cover. Here’s a gallery of just a few of the tanks up for bid right now so you can get a feel for what to expect.
