Lynyrd Skynyrd and the World’s Best Motorcycle Builders Join Legendary Sturgis Buffalo Chip® Lineup in 2020

80th Anniversary of the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally

Sturgis, SD (February 14, 2020) Few entities and people have stood the test of time and can rightfully be called legendary like those joining the Sturgis Buffalo Chip lineup today. The Buffalo Chip’s self-proclaimed house band, Lynyrd Skynyrd, is continuing a legendary tradition by finishing off their 40-plus year career with an ultimate send-off on the Wolfman Jack Stage on Sunday, Aug. 9. This is Skynyrd’s second stop at the Chip as part of their three-year “Farewell Tour.” In keeping with the theme, 36 of the world’s most celebrated motorcycle builders have accepted Michael Lichter’s invitation to create and display a motorcycle in the style of their choosing for the Sturgis Buffalo Chip’s 2020 Motorcycles as Art exhibit titled “Heavy Mettle: Motorcycles and Art with Moxie.” All invited builders have completed at least 20 custom builds and been in business for at least 20 years. The one-time exhibit will also feature photographs captured by Lichter over his 40 plus-year career. The exhibit is free and open to the public at the Sturgis Buffalo Chip Event Center from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 8 through Friday, Aug. 14, 2020.

NOTHING SHOWS THE BEST USE OF AFTERMARKET PARTS LIKE SEEING THEM ON A BIKE

(Mitchell, SD) February 1, 2016 – There are thousands of ways to customize a motorcycle. Some are loud and bold while others are modern and muted. Rocky’s Harley-Davidson and Parts Canada teamed up with Klock Werks to produce a 2015 Road Glide that is bold and clean, but not too over-done. This bike, according to Laura Lang, National Marketing Manager for Parts Canada, was a collaborative effort meant to show consumers a finished product they could be inspired by. And there was no shortage of inspiration at recent custom motorcycle shows in Canada.

“The Fat Front Tire Road Glide Rocky’s put together for Parts Canada using a variety of our Klock Werks parts turned out amazing,” said Makel Juarez, Sales Manager at Klock Werks.

The 180 front tire brought the bike to a new level and turned a lot of heads. The blacked out look further emphasized the aesthetic and can be achieved by anyone with Klock Werks precision fit parts.

Ian Daniel, Parts Manager at Rocky’s Harley Davidson, said the opportunity to work with great companies like Klock Werks and Parts Canada really got them excited. “This Road Glide was a blast to put together and is truly a mean-looking bike,” Daniel said.

Rocky’s Harley Davidson, a Harley dealership in London, Ontario, assembled the bike using almost a dozen Klock Werks parts. Randy Rothlisberger, R&D at Klock Werks in Mitchell, SD, shaved the lower fork legs and modified a Klock Werks Benchmark Front Fender to fit the larger, 180 mm front tire. Painting was completed by Brad from The Factory Match.

Juarez attended the North American International Motorcycle Supershow in Toronto January 8-10, and he said the bike was very successful. According to Juarez, show-goers loved the bike and there weren’t many moments it didn’t have a butt in the seat. Favorite features included the fat front tire, blacked out parts, and the Klock Werks adjustable KlipHanger Handlebars.

Klock Werks innovative, machined “klamps” on the KlipHangers allow the control/grip portion of the handlebar to be positioned exactly where you want your wrists to be, limiting strain and fatigue on the back, shoulders, arms, and wrists.

Klock Werks innovative parts add visual appeal, and also improve your ride. The Flare™ Windshield has been called “the last windshield you will ever buy” as it eliminates bobblehead, or wind buffeting, and reroutes air for improved stability. Klock Werks makes it simple to achieve a look that matches your style, and they back their parts with pride and unmatched customer service.

“We are very excited to be able to work hand in hand with our manufacturers and dealers to put together “show bikes” like we have this year for our Canadian consumer motorcycle shows,” Lang said.  “Nothing shows the best use of aftermarket parts like seeing them on a bike.”

Lang added that seeing parts on a shelf just doesn’t have the same effect.

The Fat Front Tire Road Glide was shown in Toronto, the Northlands, and the Vancouver Motorcycle Show at the Tradex Centre in Abbotsford and will be shown at the Montreal Motorcycle Show and The Congress Palace of Montreal February 26-28. After the bike makes the rounds, it will be returned to Rocky’s Harley Davidson to be sold.

(Mitchell, SD) July 6, 2015As South Dakota gears up to welcome the predicted record breaking crowds to the 75th Annual Sturgis Rally, Klock Werks is preparing to welcome riders to its 9th Annual Pre-Sturgis Party in the home of the “World’s Only Corn Palace”, Mitchell, South Dakota. “Every year our Pre-Sturgis Party gets better! Riders bring more friends and the city of Mitchell opens its arms even wider,” said Brian Klock, Klock Werks President.

The Klock Werks Pre-Sturgis Party has become a favorite tradition to many Sturgis bound travelers, and is held annually on the Thursday before the first official Sturgis Rally weekend. An easy day’s ride to the rally, off interstate 90 and a mere 301 miles from Sturgis, Mitchell offers plenty of campgrounds, motels, and restaurants for an overnight stay. And what other city can boast that it is the home of the “World’s Only Corn Palace” AND the home of the “World’s Only” Klock Werks?1235201_10151662157112857_696518819_n

“Noticing many riders stopping in Mitchell on their way to Sturgis, I mentioned to Brian that we should invite them all to the shop! In 2006, we did just that,” says Laura Klock, VP of Klock Werks. “Our event is now filled with custom bikes from all over the world, celebrity appearances, custard from our friends at Culvers, a chislic truck (google it!), and so much more!” The Pre-Sturgis party is part picnic, part open house, and it’s a chance to tour the Klock Werks facility and meet not only the Klock Werks Krew, but lots of industry people and new friends that travel through.”

This year the krew has released a small number of Limited Edition Brian The Bobblehead figures available for sale, is offering contests, new 75th apparel, and a few surprise guests. As new information is released, you can be notified if you join the event on the Klock Werks Facebook page.

While Klock Werks would really love to see you at the Pre-Sturgis Party, regardless of when you ride to Mitchell, SD, you’ll receive a warm welcome. Here are a few dates you will want to remember!
