Bikers surprised a man with cerebral palsy with Harley T-shirts from around the world
SHIPPENSBURG, Penn. (BIKER DAD)– Bikers surprised a man with cerebral palsy with Harley T-shirts from around the world. It happened at the VFW in Shippensburg, Pennsylvania according to the Shippensburg News Chronicle.
Benny Van Scyoc was born with cerebral palsy and can’t walk let alone ride a Harley. But that doesn’t stop him from showing his love for motorcycles or the motor company. He rides around town in his electric wheelchair in T-shirts from his favorite bikes.
Earlier Scyoc asked a friend if he knew anyone in Pittsburg who could hook him up with a new Harley shirt. His biker buddy did much better. He put out the word, and soon Harley shirts from all over the world started showing up.

His biker buddy didn’t know anyone in Pittsburg so he simply posted about it online. “We take for granted being able to get up every morning and crawl out of bed and brush our teeth,” Chad Craig told the newspaper. “People seem to forget that there’s other people out there that don’t have it as easy in life as we have it. In today’s day and age, I think it’s best to pay it forward. More people need to pay attention.”
So in the end Benny didn’t just get that Pittsburg tee. He got them from around the world, as far away as New Zealand. You can read the paper’s entire story here.
