Oddity Silent Auction for Cancer

I can’t come close to Sean’s words here, so apologies for the copy + paste. He’s running a silent auction on his 2019 NAHBS bike to raise money for his friend Phoenix:

“Heart-to-heart coming at ya. I have a friend who needs some help. His name is Phoenix. He is seven years old. He has cancer. And though I will continue to do what I can to help Phoenix, his Mom, Dad and three siblings; it will never feel like enough. Ever. So I will start this late Tuesday evening by offering my personal Mtn Cruiser, number 1/10, to anyone willing to do the right thing. One of you can take this machine home, built originally for the North American Hand-built Bicycle Show. Because I would rather have Phoenix than a million bicycles. And I am otherwise unable to help him financially. I will post images of this bike through next week, with info on its build and geometry. With a story on the why and how and what’s. And if you want to help an amazing seven year old with the fight of his life, and take this one-of-a-kind bicycle home as a bonus, please, message me with questions and/or your bid – as I’m selling the OG Mtn Coaster ‘Silent Auction’ style. Highest bidder gets the bike, some good karma and a big thank you from me. Every penny you bid goes to Phoenix. We all do hard things, and endure hardship. But at seven? This is so heavy. And feels so unfair. If you feel the urge to help otherwise, please click the go fund me link in our profile. Thank you for reading. Stay human.”

“I’m accepting silent auctions style bids. Send your bid to me via email OR DM here on IG (I DO NOT check Facebook!). Every dollar goes straight to Pheonix’s Cancer Fund (see my previous post on 9/25)- If you win, you will simply send funds direct to his Go Fund Me page (link in bio). I will cover shipping costs and the bike will be sent directly to you, the winning bidder.”

You can email Sean or DM Oddity Cycles to place a bid. All funds will be sent to Phoenix’s Go Fund Me.
