C&J Donates Proceeds from 1941 Indian Scout Military Motorcycle to Veteran’s Count
Jan 16, 2018
C&J Bus Lines and the Jalbert Family, will donate proceeds from a 1941 Military Scout auction to Veteran’s Count. Veteran’s Count is the philanthropic arm of Easter Seals’ Military and Veteran Services which provides critical and timely financial assistance and other aid to veterans, service members, and their families, the goal being to “ensure their dignity, health, and overall well-being.
The motorcycle will be auctioned at the highly acclaimed Bonham’s Las Vegas Motorcycle Auction on January 25, 2018. Bonham estimates the sale of the vehicle to exceed $25,000 and has waived all auction and processing fees to ensure 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Veteran’s Count.
The military Scout has been authentically restored by C&J’s fleet maintenance team to battle-ready, collector quality condition, has logged only a few test miles, and is ready for display, D-Day reenactments, or easy, attention-getting rides to the local bike show. The authentic WWII-era helmet and replica Thompson submachine gun will be included with the lot.
“My passion for vehicles and motorcycles started as a child” says Jim Jalbert, President of C&J Bus Lines. “This year our transportation company celebrates our 50th year of service to the Seacoast Community. We are proud of where we’ve come throughout the years and look forward to the next 50. Giving back to the community who has helped make us who we are today is an important company value and that’s why 100% of the proceeds from this bike will go to Veteran’s Count.”
