Kelly: Working on motorcycle gives youths new handle on life
Jeremy Colchin, 33, works with two youths to rebuild a motorcycle at the Omaha Home for Boys on Tuesday. After work on the motorcycle is complete, it will be raffled off in September to raise money for the home, which aims to offer structure for troubled youths and to reunite them with their families.

The best-selling novel “Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance” wasn't so much about motorcycle maintenance — it was about a philosophy for life.
On Tuesday nights in Omaha, teenagers meet with adult leaders to rebuild a motorcycle, but the larger point isn't so much about rebuilding a motorcycle. As with the 1974 novel, the group project is also about a life philosophy.
