CLAREMORE, Okla. -- An Iraqi Freedom Veteran was set up with a customized bike courtesy of a local motorcycle shop.
Mizfit Cuztomz wanted to give back to the heroes in our community. 
Within one month they decked out a 2015 Harley Davidson for a deserving local veteran.
Michael Foster, better known to friends as "Sparky", decided to put his name in the raffle to get a motorcycle customized by the business.
He ended up winning, passing off his 2015 Harley Davidson to Mizfit Cuztomz.
A day before Sparky's birthday the company unveiled the bike dripping in American spirit.
Sparky was amazed by the customizations. To him, it's more than riding a motorcycle.
“It’s just the nothingness of it, it’s just the wind, it’s calming you don’t have anything, your thoughts are just nothing," said Sparky.
Sparky served as an Air Force Military police officer from 2006 to 2009. He was discharged due to injuries he received overseas.
The motorcycle shop plans to continue this drawing for first responders and veterans twice a year.
