A Long Island mother has been named the winner in the raffle for the motorcycle built by Paul Jr. Designs to support the 9/11 Memorial.  The winning ticket number was 00439.  More details on the winner to come.

9/11 Memorial board member Daniel R. Tishman commissioned Paul Teutul Jr. and his team to build two motorcycles that commemorate the rebuilding of the World Trade Center site.  One bike, donated to the 9/11 Memorial, was unveiled in October 2011 and is now on display at the 9/11 Memorial Visitor Center at 90 West St.  The second bike was built to be raffled off in support of the memorial and museum.

Discovery Channel’s popular show “American Chopper chronicled the building of the motorcycles and Paul Jr.’s visit to the 9/11 Memorial.
