Over the years, Bolt Motorcycle has supported Nelson in both his amateur and professional career. “In 2013, Nelson stopped by the Bolt offices and gave us this set of gear as a thank you,” VP David Nichols said, “When we heard about his crash and current rehabilitation, we thought auctioning that gear could help raise funds for his mounting medical bills.” Bolt has also pledged to match the winning bid with a donation to Road 2 Recovery of up to $5000.
