Bryson’s motor auction. please read! raffle update!

Post by JT540 » Fri Aug 14, 2015 8:48 pm

It's hard being a father and having to watch your kids suffer. Me being a father myself can't image what this family is going through. I can only pray for them to be strong and pray the lord helps this family trough this rough patch. I have decide to build a motor and donate all the proceeds to the family. I will have the motor ready for October 4 when the Hog hunt will be. I'm not sure if it would be better to start the auction now or wait till the day of the hunt. I will let yall decide. I will not make a dime off of this and whoever wins the motor can make payment straight to the family. The motor will be a 0290 lycoming that will have a ton of NEW parts as I have a ton of NOS parts for this engine. It will be stock 125hp and come complete carb to headers. This will be a great little motor for frogged or someone want to build a first boat for the kid. I will warranty the motor in writing for whoever wins the auction. This is a great cause and I wish there is more I could do. I only hope this helps ease some stress on the family. Please contact me if you have any questions. My number is 407 509 4383. I will post pics along the way and of all parts going in.

Very nice offer! Will this be a G based engine, or a true 125 with dual mags and the higher compression pistons?

How will we be able to bid on this if not present? I have a 10' deckover that this would be perfect for.

Not speaking for you here Justin but I had an idea for you. What about instead of the highest bidder on the motor, do a raffle for it. Set a price of a ticket at say $100 each. I see lots of donations going into the go fund me account already which is outstanding so say someone donates $100 for a ticket and gets a chance to win a complete 0290G running package. I think this may raise more money for the family than say one person bidding the highest. Just a thought. What's everyone think?
