March 17, 2011  | 

A Harley-Davidson Fat Boy motorcycle from Paul Jr. Designs customized in honor of a St. Paul, Minn., Police officer killed in the line of duty will be featured at National Police Week and auctioned later this year.

Proceeds from the auction of the bike, as well as a custom-built Harley-Davidson, will benefit the National Law Enforcement Officer's Memorial Fund.

Paul Jr. Designs created the bikes for CrankyApe online powersport auction company owners Jay Adams and former police officer Brian Livingston.

"While nothing can compare to what these fallen officers have given, we hope to help gain recognition and support for such a great charitable organization whose focus is on remembering those who have made the greatest sacrifice to our communities," according to Livingston.

Livingston is a close friend of a St. Paul Police officer who was killed in the line of duty in 1994. On Aug. 26 of that year, St. Paul (Minn.) Police Officer Ronald Michael Ryan, Jr. was shot and killed, while investigating a suspicious person who was sleeping in a car along a roadway. Later that day, St. Paul PD's Officer Timothy James Jones and his K-9, Lazer, were ambushed and killed by the same suspect who killed Officer Ryan, who was a close family friend of Livingston, the co-founder of

Livingston and Jay Adams have devised a way to give back to the community and commemorate all fallen officers. The custom Harley-Davidson motorcycle will be publicly auctioned on the CrankyApe Web site and proceeds will benefit the NLEOMF, a nonprofit organization that generates increased public support and commemorates the service and sacrifice of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty.

"I think about Officer Ryan and all he and his family lost and now we have an opportunity to give something back," according to Adams.

"We are honored to partner with to recognize and remember Officer Ryan and so many other officers who love motorcycles," according to Craig Floyd, NLEOMF chairman and CEO. "The bond between law enforcement and motorcycling is strong. For over 100 years, motor officers have patrolled our communities and protected our citizens every day."

The customized motorcycle will be on display during National Police Week from May 15-21 in Washington, D.C. The auction will be held online at during the summer.
