This year the annual exhibition held at the Buffalo Chip during the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, and curated by Michael Lichter, has the title ‘Built for Speed - Race Inspired Motorcycles and Art’.
Once again Michael is co-curating his Motorcycles as Art exhibition with Paul d'Orleans of the Vintagent (www.thevintagent.com), with this year’s theme being race inspired design and art. To reflect this theme each custom bike in 'Built for Speed' reflects a branch of racing; speedway, flat track, drag, board track, GP, and land speed racing, and will be displayed beside the racing machines suggesting the origins of each style. The motorcycles will be displayed among race inspired pieces of art including paintings, photography, helmets and prints.
Built for Speed will feature 32 motorcycles, a combination of custom builds and factory-loaned machines. The customs are from Revival Cycles, Arlen Ness, Blings Cycles, Fat Dog Racing, Brawny Built, Klockwerks, DC Choppers, Dan Rognsvoog with Skip Schulze, Dime City Cycles, John Reed, Ken's Factory (Japan), Baas Metal Craft, Custom Design Studios, Carl's Cycle,
