A cherished motorcycle owned by a New Zealand musician is set to go under the hammer for charity.

L.A.B. frontman Joel Shadbolt announced that he is auctioning off the custom bike through TradeMe to support the youth mental health charity I Am Hope.

According to Shadbolt, this Harley Davidson isn't just any motorcycle; it's a tangible embodiment of L.A.B.'s inaugural album artwork, meticulously transformed into a work of art. "This bike has been my pride and joy," he expressed. "I'm thrilled to contribute to this remarkable charity through the auction."

The unveiling of this coveted motorcycle will take place during the grand opening of Capital Coast Harley Davidson in Wellington on Saturday, April 6.

"Collaborating with the ECHD team to materialize this concept has been an absolute delight. It's a real attention-grabber, with stunning attention to detail," Shadbolt remarked.

In addition to the motorcycle, the winning bidder will receive a set of six fully signed and framed L.A.B. vinyl records, a personalized LABNZ license plate, and a selection of L.A.B. merchandise to attract potential bidders.

Mike King, founder of I Am Hope charity, expressed immense gratitude for the generosity displayed through the auction. "This auction serves as a remarkable platform to raise awareness about mental health struggles and the supportive services we provide. Each dollar raised makes a tangible impact," he emphasized.
