LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville teen's dream to become a Harley Davidson biker became a reality today. 

The Dream Factory granted 16-year-old Dominic Allen's wish Monday at the Harley Davidson dealer on Arthur Street. He was given a leather vest and jacket, riding boots and had a chance to sit on a Harley. 

The non-profit organization gives kids with chronic illnesses some relief from every day stresses and pain. Allen says he has been dreaming of being a biker since elementary school.

"Even though I don't get the bike, everybody here is still amazing," Allen said. "Everybody here's nice. It's just wow. That's all there is to say."  

The Dream Factory started in 1980 in Hopkinsville, Kentucky and has granted more than 25,000 dreams.
