JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A customized motorcycle will be on display at the Missouri Capitol this week as part of a campaign to promote April as National Safe Digging Month.

The motorcycle is dubbed the "811 Bike," reminding Missourians to call 811 for the locations of utility lines and pipes before any excavation at homes or businesses. The information is also available by calling 1-800-DIG-RITE.

The special motorcycle has been featured on the Discovery Channel's "American Chopper" series. It will be on display from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday on the south side of the Capitol.
