Plenty to do and to see, the Bagger trend is still Hot in the USA, but Old School Choppers are very popular too. During the show two worldwide reveals got the public's attention; the new Kuryakin 'Rock, Rumble & Rebellion, not your fahter's 3 R's'industrial looking 'Sport Bagger' and the S&S Dyna, a very powerfull S&S T143 c.i. motor sits in the 2016 Dyna, outfitted with small bags and a huge fairing,reflecting the muscle car Shelby Cobra styling. Both bikes drew a crowd, with Kuryakin's big boss Holger More explaining everything about their bike and S&S inviting me to ride it on the dragstrip... Should I? are you f*ckin'kidding me?! Yes, I will! More about that later.
Yellow Yellow, as most Hamsters come to the Donnie Smith Show, plenty of them, of their work and bikes are to be seen, pure eye-candy for all custom bike lovers! Dave and daughter Jody Perewitz, the Ness family, Chris MCGee and his MagnaFlow exhaust systems, Dennis Kirk, Kuryakin, S&S, Sturgis Buffalo Chip, Lucas Oil, Led Sled Customs, Metzeler Tires, and so on, all were there at the Donnie Smith Show 2017.
Too many famous builders to name were at the show, having a great time and enjoying the conversations with other builders and the public. And so did we, a BIG THANKS to all the Hamsters, especially Greg Wick and Donnie Smith for your hospitality and friendship!
