|Chris Gibbany 1937 Knucklehead "Redemption"|
I am still progressing on my 1937 EL Knucklehead that I have dubbed "Redemption" to raise awareness to narcissistic abuse.
My mother was a narcissist who caused me years of pain. I was never good enough no matter what I did or how hard I tried. When she died in 2015, I had to fight my brother for two years and I purchased this bike with my portion of the estate. The bike was in a very sad state of existence. It was a running and riding bike, but it had suffered years of abuse much like myself. In finding my "Redemption" and building myself back up, I am also bringing this bike back to it's full potential; giving it life again, with new parts and a completely new look.
The only way to fight narcissistic abuse is by raising awareness to what it is and what it does to its victims. By sharing my story, I hope to open the door to a taboo subject that a lot of people are not familiar with.
