A Sheffield man renovated his prized possesion - an iconic 1985 Kawasaki Ninja Superbike - before donating it to a national stroke charity, in memory of his later father.
Jay McGreneghan, of Norfolk Park, lost his father Tony in April this year following a series of strokes. The bike-lover decided to honour his father by restoring his bike, and donating it to Stroke Association Support to raffle off and raise vital funds.
Jay, aged 41, said: “Dad spent 11 years bed-bound following his stroke, but before that he loved all things fast - cars and motorcycles - so this seemed appropriate.”
And Jay had help with the restoration, after Kawasaki Motors UK and GT Motorcycles both volunteered their services, carrying out a complete rebuild in just one week, using parts that had been donated from companies all over the world.
Jay added: “When it was done, I took the bike to the Isle of Man during Practice week at the TT, where TT racer Adam Child completed a tribute lap of the legendary mountain course to my dad before I handed it over to the charity, which meant so much. I can’t thank everyone enough for their help with this tribute to my dad.”
