Area Veterans Joined the Call to Customize A Motorcycle!

The Helping with Horsepower Bike Rebuild Program launched February 27, 2022, for Veterans, and the custom motorcycle created was unveiled at the Parkston Freedom Celebration on Thursday, June 30, 2022!


Helping with Horsepower at Reclamation-Ranch launched the Heroes Helping with Horsepower Veterans Program in 2019 to connect our service men and women with the transformative and healing power
of horses. To further engage and thank our Veterans, Helping with Horsepower reclaimed their original and copyrighted Bike Rebuild Program to give Veterans an opportunity to come together with purpose, and join the call to customize a Harley-Davidson motorcycle! The program is free to join and no experience is necessary as goals for success include providing a therapeutic motorcycle work space, camaraderie, focus, and a new sense of purpose! A team of varied levels of experience assembled to provide our Veterans with equipment, guidance, hands-on experience, and a welcoming atmosphere where they can connect with other Veterans all while working together to customize the project motorcycle!


With most branches of the military represented in our group, the team named their project motorcycle

THE OATH, as one bond they share is the Oath of Enlistment.

THE OATH is our completely customized 2000 Harley-Davidson FXDS.  

Drawing was held September 10, 2022 in Ethan, South Dakota, at our Helping with Horsepower Military Appreciation Event.

The Winner of the Oath was Marty Gueckisen of Mitchell, SD

Proceeds allow us to offer services to Veterans free of charge.

Helping with Horsepower is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.

Special THANK YOU to our 2022 Bike Rebuild Sponsors for helping support our program!
