We're just a few days away from Toby Keith's Oklahoma Twister Relief concert at OU's Gaylord Family Memorial Stadium. 

During that event, Oklahoma City motorcycle builder Brass Balls Cycles and Keith will present a very special gift to one of the Moore tornado survivors. 

Gerald Mobley's house was leveled by the Moore tornado May 20. He had had been restoring an old Harley Davidson for two years. The bike was mangled by the twister. 

Brass Ball's owner Dar Holdsworth heard about Mobley's bike, and pledged to rebuild the Harley, no matter what it cost. Mobley says he is greatful beyond words.

"It surprised me someone would have that kind of generosity," he said. 

"This isn't just us doing it.  Many vendors like SNS have stepped up to make this possible.  So this is an entire community that is doing this," Holdsworth said.
