Bikers turn up to surprise Bunbury boy Zane for his birthday

The West Australian

Dozens of bikers have rolled into Bunbury to wish a 13-year-old boy a happy birthday he’ll never forget.

Zane Evans loves motorcycles so his mum put a call out online to ask any motorcyclists to swing by McDonalds in Eaton on Friday.

Hoping that one or two might visit, the response was overwhelming.

Bikers from far and wide, all complete strangers, swung by to sing happy birthday to Zane.

One biker told GWN: “As soon as I’d seen it I raced home, got my bike and raced out.”

And they came bearing gifts for the new teenager, including his own motorcycle helmet.

Zane’s mum Keira explained that her son was injured at birth and he suffers cerebral palsy, severe epilepsy and is non-verbal.

She told GWN that the bikers had made their year.

“Thank you so much,” she said.

“I don’t know any other 13-year-old who gets to celebrate their birthday like that and I think he will remembering this on for a really long time.”
