U.S. and international custom builders and industry luminaries connected on the first Sunday of the 76th edition of the Sturgis Rally for a Meet & Greet breakfast to benefit Tech Ed scholarships.
The fund is an expansion of the Buffalo Chip Challenge which has been committed to bolstering the growth of South Dakota’s motorcycle industry by helping Sturgis area students develop hands-on skills and knowledge.
Builders whose work was displayed in the Buffalo Chip’s 2016 Motorcycles As Art Exhibition, gathered with other invited top-name builders and racers to shake hands, sign autographs and pose for pictures with fans and friends.
“The Flying Piston at the Buffalo Chip event helps to keep the custom bike industry strong by assisting graduates and vets in joining the industry through a scholarship,” explained Roy Martin, Roy’s Toys Customs’ President. “It also a great place to mingle with industry veterans and celebs to find out the latest advances and trends in the industry.”
