Ernabella Arts LHT

This one-of-a-kind Surly LHT was recently auctioned on E-Bay to raise funds for a school for indigenous youth in Australia:

The sale item is a brand new Surly Long Haul Trucker size large (58cm – see the full specifications http://www.surlybikes.com/lht_comp.html). The frame has been hand painted by Aboriginal artists from Ernabella Arts Inc and has been clear coated to protect the artwork.

The funds raised from the sale of the bicycle will go towards support Indigenous youth at the Djarragun College, south of Cairns in far North Queensland.

The fundraiser was the brainchild of Australian bike distributor Dirt Works.

    Hi I’ve spent a fair bit of time in Alice Springs during the last couple of years and I’ve got to tell you that those western desert people are turning out the most mind boggling art.

    Whoever wins this bike will be stuck with one very difficult decision, Whether to ride it or hang it on the wal……… Regards Terry
