Second Bike from Bruce Willis’ Personal Collection to Go Up for Auction 

Proceeds from Motorcycle Auction to Benefit Active Duty and Retired Military Through Non-Profit, The Boot Campaign

Austin, TX (February 4, 2013) – Calling all motorcycle enthusiasts!  You can be the new owner of one of Bruce Willis’ bikes! The action film star has donated five motorcycles from his garage for an online auction to benefit veterans and wounded combat troops through the Boot Campaign, a national 501c3 non-profit military appreciation and support campaign based in Texas.  The first motorcycle, a 2005 Ducati 1000DS, was auctioned in December 2012.  Starting February 4, 2013 the second bike from Bruce Willis’ donated collection, a 1988 Yamaha TW, will go on auction.  Born on a military base in Germany, Bruce Willis has a long-standing commitment to supporting U.S. Forces.

“I wanted to use my bikes in a way that would benefit our military service members, and I am thankful to have found the Boot Campaign as the catalyst for using my bikes in a way that will give back to our country’s true heroes,” said Bruce Willis. “These bikes have been a lot of fun to ride, and my hope is they can do a lot of good for our veterans.”

The second of Bruce Willis’ five donated motorcycles will be auctioned online starting on February 4, 2013.  Bidding on the 1988 Yamaha TW will end on February 26, 2013.  The first auctioned bike was Willis’ 2005 Ducati 1000DS which raised $6,250 for the Boot Campaign. The bikes will be released for auction every two months with the final charity auction in August 2013.  CharityBuzz.com is hosting each bike’s auction.  To place a bid on Bruce Willis’ 1988 Yamaha TW visit: http://bit.ly/BruceBike2
