Baron, a noble cause!
Why not put up some more details about who this girl is, age, parents and where she lives. The above post is not really clear.
It may help to get more people to bid if they are more clear about
everything.
Where can we find more about chopper builders?
Good luck!

ps: my bid is placed.

There ya go man, I bid 76, dare someone to beat me!

Good luck man, Im not much at marketing, but Ill get a set of my 2 inch risers in brass and aluminum to you for nothing. Find someone who knows how to market em for ya on ebay and they should be able to get 200 plus out of each....

Probably be cheaper for me to send them straight from my shop, but its up to you.

PM me or email me and well put our heads together on em.

chopperbuilder.co.uk is your brother site in the UK,Here is a little more in on Little Siobhan.

Hi All,
Just want to start by saying a huge THANK YOU for the overwhelming offers of support and kind words towards my daughter Siobhan during this trying and upsetting time.

Siobhan simply bumped herself on her school desk one day and as a result had a large lump and bruise on her right hip... after a few days bruise went but lump stayed.

We took her to hospital 3 times and 3 times we were told it's nothing to worry about, then on our 4Th visit they wanted to lance and drain lump at which point they found it to be a tumor.

Siobhan underwent various tests and scans at which point we were told it was cancer and it was both in the lump and her lungs and the doctors gave us a 50% chance of her getting clear.

She may only be 7 but she is a stubborn and bright girl who we told as best we could the truth about her illness to which she responded to by telling us 'don't worry I will be ok!' ... and like her words she has been brave and fought through every thing this illness has so far chucked at her!

So far she has had 5 lots of chemo and endured all the side affects with a brave and positive manner...when told her long hair would fall-out she said to docs...' ok, but when it grows back can you make it blond!' , this just shows the kind of spirit she has.

The idea of a 'Siobhan Fund' was as a result of some biker friends at Xmas giving me a very generous cheque... I've always been kinda proud in life and never took a 'hand-out' and was a bit taken-back, then I realized this was friends just genuinely trying to help us through a rough time.

When we told friends and family about the cheque it was suggested that Siobhan should be given the chance to go-to the one place she wanted to and that was Disney Florida, that's when the 'fund' started and various sponsor events and the like were planned.

I can only once again thank everyone who is kind enough to help towards my daughter's cause.

Hi Mute,
Heres's an idea for you?Cool Flanders style risers in a choice of finishes.Not avaliable from anywhere else,these are being auctioned for a very worthy cause.All proceeds from the auction will go towards helping a little girl from England called Siobhan who is very ill with cancer.The money raised will help fulfill her dreams of a holiday to Disneyland Florida ! Please place a bid as every dollar helps.
Many thanks.:)

I had something similar happen to me when I was a kid. The doctors thought I had mono, turned out to be a tumor. Keep her spirits up, positive thinking goes a long way. Let's get her to Florida. She is going to be OK.
