Motorcycle riders revved up to build a Blount County family a new home.

Smoky Mountain Harley Davidson is sponsoring the Harley House.

Dozens of riders and volunteers started building the home Saturday.

The family who will receive the house also helped with the build. They said they are lucky to have this opportunity.

"It's our home. Our first home as a family and it's going to be ours," said Crystal and Lee Gibbs, the new homeowners. "This is something that we can call ours."

Smoky Mountain Harley Davidson has sponsored a Habitat for Humanity build the last two years.

They raised money for the home with several motorcycle rides, auctions, dinners, and raffles.
