TULSA - There they sit, on the floor of a recreation center.
One hundred sixty brand new bikes, in a rainbow of colors. Some called Thunder, some called Sweet.
Some with training wheels, all just waiting for 160 new young owners.
Eight-year-old Trayvon will be one of them. "I'm so excited because we get to take it home," he told us.
And Trayvon can hardly wait, all he can do is smile, cheek to cheek.
He, along with a bunch of kids who live in Tulsa Housing Authority apartment complexes will be the proud new owners.
"Their eyes are going to be bright like they're looking at Santa Clause."
Rodney Gray helped select the kids who'll get a new bike. He's with Youth at Heart, and says each child will also be given a helmet and a bike lock.
All of them had to take a bicycle safety course.
"This is an awesome day," Gray says.
Making it awesome?
The private organization donating the bikes, called Bikes For Tykes.
"It's been a huge success in Tulsa," says Tommy Chavez.
He's one of the three folks who started Bikes For Tykes four years ago.
It raises money to buy the bikes, then donates them to local organizations that work with kids in need.
This delivery marks the 1,000th bike the group has given away.
"It's unbelievable to see the look on a kid's face when the get a bicycle that they did not expect to be given, especially a brand new bike, it makes a huge difference in some of these kids' lives."
You can certainly see the difference on Trayvon's face. That smile, that beaming smile, as he sits on his brand new, shiny bike.
And to those who made it happen, Trayvon says, "Fantastic job!!"
And Bikes for Tykes plans to give away another 220 bikes before Christmas.
