Manheim, Pa., Aug. 30— Garage-Girls and Allstate Motorcycle Insurance are proud to announce this year’s Ultimate Biker Makeover winner; Patricia Thurston! Patricia was selected among over 61 entries to this year’s contest.

Contestants (girls and guys) were asked to submit a 600 words or less essay—describing why they are most in need of a biker makeover as well as a photo. Deadline for entries was July 7, 2017. Submissions were narrowed down to the final four by selected judges from Garage-Girls. From there, the judges had to make the tough decision of who they felt most deserved the Ultimate Biker Makeover. Patricia will get to take home all the prizes which include; A wardrobe of shoes from Harley-Davidson Footwear, a case of full synthetic oil from Spectro Oils, A new Mustang Motorcycle Seat, a set of tires from AVON Tyres, Motorcycle Helmet, Jacket AND Gloves by Indian Motorcycle, A Valerie bag by Motochic, A carb rebuild kit and more from S&S Cycle, A Navbag, tacker sign and apparel from Klock Werks, A momentum Vagabond bag by Kuryakyn, exhaust heat wrap by DEI, a batwing fairing and windshield from Memphis Shades, and much more.

To say Patricia was stunned would absolutely be an understatement, “I didn’t see my email till four days after the announcement, and I am humbled and so honored. Crying like sissy girl in fact, I so needed this. You have no idea how this will help my dream of getting my motorcycle back on the road,” said Thurston.

2018 marks the 10th anniversary of the Garage-Girls Ultimate Biker Makeover and the girls are already hard at work planning the big celebration! Stay tuned for more info to come.

“There is nothing better in this world than being able to help out a fellow rider, we love to support bigger organizations, but getting to experience the impact on a personal level, that is priceless. Of course our sponsors are the ones we need to thank, they make this happen with their genuine hearts and compassion. Thank you to Allstate Motorcycle they are truly doing all they can to #keepridersriding” —Sara Liberte, owner of Garage-Girls.
