Sturgis Buffalo Chip is bringing back one of its most requested bands, Lynyrd Skynyrd

Sturgis Buffalo Chip® Upholds American Rock Tradition
Sturgis Buffalo Chip is bringing back one of its most requested bands, Lynyrd Skynyrd

Buffalo Chip, SD (March 29, 2016) – A 35-year tradition of presenting the best in American classic rock will continue as the Sturgis Buffalo Chip is bringing back one of its most requested bands, Lynyrd Skynyrd, for a performance on Monday, Aug. 8. The band has become the standard bearer of classic American rock at the Largest Music Festival in MotorcyclingTM, carrying the torch of freedom and independence through their music. Lynyrd Skynyrd has created a legacy much larger than their 30 million albums sold–breaking down generational barriers and becoming a standard in motorcycle culture. A short video exploring Buffalo Chip tradition and the effect Skynyrd’s music has had on the collective American experience can be found here: http://bit.ly/1odgLrg





After nearly five decades of creating unforgettable, chart-topping hits such as “Sweet Home Alabama,” “Gimme Three Steps” and “Freebird,” it’s no wonder Skynyrd is followed by a loyal legion of enthusiastic fans.








“Without a doubt Lynyrd Skynyrd is one of the Buffalo Chip’s fans most favored bands,” said Rod Woodruff, Buffalo Chip President. “You typically see at least three generations of music and motorcycle fans, standing together and singing along to their songs. Their music is at the heart of American rock, just like the Buffalo Chip.”

  
The addition of Lynyrd Skynyrd makes four world-class performances announced for the Buffalo Chip’s upcoming 35th anniversary party:
Sunday, Aug. 7 – Kid Rock
Monday, Aug. 8 – Lynyrd Skynyrd
Thursday, Aug. 11 – Miranda Lambert
Saturday, Aug – “Weird Al” Yankovic

Shaka Ponk headliner op Harley-Davidson Euro Festival

Shaka Ponk headliner op Harley-Davidson Euro Festival

Rijswijk, 29 maart 2016 – Harley-Davidson® Europa presenteert Shaka Ponk (SHK PNK) als headliner op het Harley-Davidson Euro Festival. Na twee albums in een jaar – The White Pixel Ape en The Black Pixel Ape – en een tour van honderd dagen is Shaka Ponk nog lang niet uitgespeeld: de experimentele Franse rockband beklimt samen met mascotte Mr Goz het hoofdpodium van het festival voor een knallende mix van rock, hiphop, funk en elektronica. De tiende editie van het Euro Festival vindt plaats van 28 april tot 1 mei 2016 in Grimaud, Zuid-Frankrijk, en geldt als een van de grootste en best bezochte Harley-festivals van Europa. Naast Shaka Ponk staat ook rocklegende Europe op de indrukwekkende muzikale line-up.

AMD World Championship entries running ahead of schedule

AMD World Championship 2016 
entries running ahead of schedule

Entries for this year's AMD World Championship of Custom Bike Building opened at the beginning of February, and as at mid-March, after just seven weeks, and including our affiliate event qualifiers, there were already 46 bikes entered by 38 competitors from 13 different countries - including entries from as far afield as Israel and Japan!


Following the success of the 2014 experiment of hosting the AMD World Championship at the 200,000 plus attendance INTERMOT Expo in Germany, the event is now slated to be held there in October this year (October 5 - 9), and also in 2018 and 2020.
Tapping into INTERMOT's ready-made attendance achieved the aim of giving the custom motorcycle industry access to the largest possible audience of potential customers yet achieved by the AMD World Championship.
The competitor community voted the 2014 experiment a success, and as a showcase to energise existing custom fans and enthuse new potential customers for the sector, the AMD World Championship's presence at INTERMOT is a "slam dunk," according to Championship Director Neil "ShowMaster" Blaber".


"The principle of providing the custom market with a focussed presence at one of the world's largest motorcycle expos was incredibly well received by the competitors who took part," Blaber said.
"Since the 2014 event we have had time to gauge the level of wider industry reaction to the presence of the AMD World Championship grade bikes being seen in the context of INTERMOT and to take the pulse of the custom market about INTERMOT as a long-term host for the AMD World Championship. In both respects the response has been entirely positive.
"There is no perfect hosting solution for any custom event, just as there is no perfect custom show; but throwing the focus onto attracting new customers has been exactly what the custom industry has said it needs, and the response in terms of entries for October this year, at this early stage, has been very encouraging. I can't recall ever having had so many at this early stage before."
Show organizer Koelnmesse has responded to the 2014 success by now creating a dedicated 'Show-within-the-Show' concept for the custom motorcycle market, with 'INTERMOT Customized' slated to be stage in the 235,000 sq ft Hall 10 - one of the six halls of the state-of-the-art Koelnmesse complex in which INTERMOT will be staged this year.
Located very close to three of the primary public entrances to the show, visitor analysis suggested that the AMD World Championship and its adjacent exhibitors saw some of the strongest attendee traffic of the entire show in 2014 - and with the marketing muscle of INTERMOT itself now in full flow behind the 'INTERMOT Customized' concept this year, this year is expected to see possibly the largest audience ever for any custom bike competition, anywhere.

Maywood, IL -- Maywood, IL - Harley-Davidson's newly redesigned FLTR Road Glide represents the latest in touring comfort, and the triple-vented shark nose fairing is perfectly complemented in both form and function by National Cycle's VStream Windscreens.
VStream's cutting-edge aeroacoustic contour features a wider profile at the top, which pushes turbulent, noisy airflow to the side and away from the rider's helmet. This extra width creates a quiet pocket of air with significantly reduced helmet buffeting for a calmer and quieter ride compared to the stock screen.


VStream windscreens are made from tough 4.5mm Quantum® hardcoated polycarbonate. Our state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques combined with this high quality material provide outstanding clarity and strength characteristics unmatched by any windscreen maker worldwide. Our exclusive Quantum hardcoating makes the VStream 30x more scratch resistant than acrylic, and 10x more than standard hardcoated polycarbonate -- ensuring that your windscreen will stay clear and strong for many years to come. 
National Cycle's Polycarbonate Windscreens Are Protected By a 
3-Year Warranty Against Breakage and Are Proudly Made in the U.S.A.
Available in three configurations: the Low Windscreen with a Dark Tint (Part #N20433), the Touring Windscreen with a Light Tint (Part # N20432), and the Tall Touring Windscreen with No Tint (#N20431).

ShockStrap RATCHET STRAP with Safety Strap

32' ShockStrap Ratchet Safety Strap Now Available! 

Sandy, UT - ShockStrap is proud to introduce their new 32' ShockStrap Ratchet Safety Strap with an industry leading 2 year warranty to their product line up. 

They incorporated a Safety Strap on one side of the ShockStrap which is there for 2 reasons:  1) if a catastrophic accident happened and the ShockStrap breaks, the Safety Strap will keep the tie down tight and in place. 2)  Safety Strap also acts as a limiter so you won't over-tighten 
and stress everything you are trying to secure. 
The commercial grade ratchet has an outside release for ease of use even with gloves on. 
It is bolted on so you can replace it in the future and keep your investment working.




ShockStrap is made from our own formula and is not affected by most chemicals, sunlight, oil, salt water, fungus and moisture. The strength of our product is to make everything work together so that the ShockStrap maintains constant pressure on the strap when hitting bumps or having side pressure applied to it.  You won't be pulling over every 50 miles or at a gas station break to retighten ShockStraps...EVER! 


Polyester webbing is used because it has superior attributes, it stretches less, is more resistant to rot and mildew, and has a higher strength rating and a softer feel in your hands. The 2" Polyester webbing has a heavy duty ratchet, a 5000lb breaking strength and the overall Ratchet Safety Strap has a 1533 lb. working load limit. We doubled the hooks and added yellow zinc chromate finish, which offers better weather resistance and durability compared to standard chrome plating. Next to each hook there is an integrated soft loop. This lets you use the soft loop when the hook won't fit so that you can wrap it around an axle or handlebar and pull it tight against the hook. 



ShockStrap Safety Strap Features:

Industry Leading 2-year warranty

Ratchet Safety Strap is rated over 4600 lbs. breaking strength
Safety Strap around one side of ShockStraps
Commercial grade ratchet with outside release that is field replaceable
2" Polyester webbing rated at 5000 lbs. breaking strength
Integrated Soft Ties near both ends
Double Steel Hooks
DOT Approved-Working Load Limit of 1533 lbs.

Available in black only in 9', 18' and 32' lengths for your BIG Toys!

ZODIAC'S NEW SOFTAIL BOBBER MOTORCYCLE KIT

ZODIAC'S SOFTAIL BOBBER MOTORCYCLE KIT


It is no secret that old is new again in the customizing world and the Bobber Style Harleys are more popular than ever before. A brainchild of American World War II flyers returning to the USA that started racing these bikes on the roads are the inspiration of many custom bike builders today. 


But one thing Bobbers were definitely not made for: Comfort. The Zodiac Softail Bobber motorcycle kit is a perfect combination of these "Old Skool" Bobber looks, but with 21st century comfort and reliability. 

 We designed this kit around the famous Kraft/Tech Softail frame with all the best components we could find. It is available with the S&S 80CI or 96CI Evolution-style engine with Super E carburetor and Super Stock ignition, and there is a Euro-3 version available with the S&S 113CI Evolution-style Euro-3 engine and BSL's Euro-3 approved "Hot-Shot" pipes. Rivera/Primo re-designed their powerful 1 3/4" SlimLine open belt drive kit to accept a billet belt guard inspired by the classic tin primary for this project. We fitted a "Slim Bubba" front fork with a Harrison "Billet 6" caliper, all to give the bike a sleek and narrow appearance. To give it a custom twist, our popular Mustang Ribbed fuel tank with matching ribbed front fender are used, as well as our Zodiac Custom Products handlebar controls with petite switches and billet forward controls. 

The front wheel is a 2.15x21" chrome rim with 40 spokes and a MH90 B21 tire, while the rear has a 3.5x16" chrome rim with 40 spokes and a 150/80 B16 tire. A modern 6 speed transmission is fitted, with a Tsubaki 530 chain to drive the rear wheel. For those who really want an authentic old appearance, we have a kit bike available with a Springer front end and the S&S 93CI Knucklehead-style engine. As this S&S KN-Style engine was also designed to take a state of the art alternator style electrical system the bike can still be equipped with a high-power battery and consequently a high power starter motor, which will make starting a lot easier. These package deal motorcycle kits are comprehensively equipped and competitively priced. Order it, Build it, Paint it, Ride it.

ZODIAC'S BLACK PRINCE BIKE KITS

ZODIAC'S BLACK PRINCE PACKAGE DEAL BIKE KITS


Another stunning creation from "The Godfather", Zodiac's now retired General Manager Ton Pels. The "Black Prince" kits contain almost any part you need to build your own Custom motorcycle. All parts in this kit are from the industries leading manufacturers. 




Brakes from Harrison Billet and PM, wheels from Rick's, seat by Le Pera, wiring by Wire Plus. The kit comes standard with the famous S&S 96CI (1,530 cc) V-2 style power plant, or a Euro-3 compliant S&S 113CI (1,850 cc) SideWinder. For those that allready have a complete Evolution Softail DriveLine we also offer a Rolling Chassis kit that includes a RightSideDrive conversion kit for 1994-1999 Softail transmissions. 

The frame is a TÜV approved Fat-Tube Right Side Drive and matching swing-arm to accommodate for the Avon 300/35-R18 rear tire on the Rick's 10.5x18 wheel. The use of a Right Side Drive transmission keeps the rear wheel exactly in the center of the frame without the necessity to offset the primary transmission. The swingarm is wide enough to take Avon's 330 rear tire, when used in conjunction with a matching RSD transmission. This was the option Zodiac chose for when building the pictured bike. Primary drive is by an impressive 3" wide open belt drive. Final drive is by belt on the right side of the bike. 

The 96CI versions come with SuperTrapp Fat Shots exhausts that feature large volume mufflers for optimal performance and that rumbling V-Twin sound. The V113 comes with a Euro-3 approved BSL exhaust system. The front suspension is Zodiac's TÜV approved Fat Bubba that is 32" long and is fitted in a set of 3 degrees raked triple trees. Together with the 38 degrees neck rake in the frame and the 130/60x18 front tire this builds a very good handling bike. Anyone who has ever ridden it was amazed that a bike with such an extreme wide rear tire was so easy to steer and also how stabile it is on a long and high-speed straight. The pictured "Black Prince" is equipped with a prototype handlebar with integrated speedo, and a custom build two-piece rear fender. The kit bike comes with raw steel fender strut sides and base and a raw steel rear fender.

Note: Exhaust system for kits with 96CI engines are not EU approved.


Buffalo Chip Challenge Students Score at Black Hills Motorcycle Show

Buffalo Chip Challenge™ Students Score
 at Black Hills Motorcycle Show

Rapid City, SD (March 21, 2016) – Black Hills area high school students participating in the 2016 Buffalo Chip Challenge scored their first big win this weekend at the Black Hills Motorcycle Show. Just days after completing two world-class, custom baggers, the students unveiled the bikes at the Black Hills show and received two first place trophies. The students will now take the motorcycles on to compete at the prestigious Donnie Smith Bike and Car Show in St. Paul, Minn. on April 2 & 3. The program, developed by Sturgis Buffalo Chip® president Rod Woodruff and coordinated by Keith Terry of Terry Components, was designed to prepare the next generation of American motorcycle experts and cultivate motorcycle industry economic development.
