Ottumwa man builds bike for a great cause

One Ottumwa man is taking his love of motorcycles and giving back to those who have served his country.

Rodger Borror of Wapello County Chopper built a special military themed bike, which was unveiled Friday evening at Ottumwa TMs Bridge View Center.

Borror told KTVO that he built the bike because of those who have served and because he never did.

I don TMt know, it TMs always been in the back of my mind. I never had a chance of getting into the service when I was younger. I just had a lot of friends that went over their, and with all the stuff happening over their, I just wanted to who what I can do over here. I just figured my grandfather fought in the war, so this was my way of fighting the war on this soil, said Borror.

Borror hopes to auction off the bike within the coming year. He told KTVO that he has many different military charities in mind that he is going to send the funds to.
