Pop Quiz: What do Tony Hawk, Perry Farrell of Jane’s Addiction, and Why We Ride star land speed racer Karlee Cobb have in common? They were all at Tony Hawk and Friends’ Annual Stand Up for Skateparks Benefit in Beverly Hills last month! Karlee Cobb, 21, daughter of land-speed record holder, Laura Klock, launched her first motorcycle design.
Karlee’s design was based off a 2014 Bonneville T100 donated by Triumph Motorcycles, with modified and custom made parts by Klock Werks, along with carefully chosen parts from Triumph, British Customs, Joker Machine, Metzeler Tires, Nash Motorcycle Company and Hagon Shocks. The custom paint job was done by Brad Smith of The Factory Match. Perry Farrell of Jane’s Addiction and Lollapalooza fame, and his wife Etty, had the winning bid for the 2014 Triumph T100 desert runner designed by Karlee. “It has a bag for skateboards!” Karlee shared.
This year’s Stand Up For Skateparks raised over $850,000. Proceeds support the Tony Hawk Foundation’s mission to empower youth through the creation of free, quality, public skateparks in low-income communities throughout the U.S., and Internationally with programs that enrich the lives of youth through skateboarding.
