Custom builder Brian Klock will remember 2006 as an exceptional year for him & his dedicated crew. First, Brian was invited to participate in a Discovery Channel Biker Build Off. Second, he won this TV competition with a custom Bagger, which was very unusual since all competitors until now prefer to show their skills on high tech radical customs or retro (May I say neo retro?) builds. After his victory, Brian felt like having wings. So, he decided to take his Build Off winning Bagger to the Bonneville Salt Flats to make some speed testing. Brian’s a gentleman, so he asked his fiancée Laura Ellifson to pilot his custom bagger on the flats (she is not a beginner, far from it). When the flag man called a speed, Laura 1st pass came back at 137.575 mph. After attempting a total of 6 passes, the custom bike was clocked at 147.359 mph, a new AMA national record for the fastest bagger. Laura & Brian impressed so much each other (him with his build, her with her speed) that after the race he proposed to her and she accepted. Congrats! Although Brian Klock has built bikes of all styles in his shop of Mitchell, South Dakota, he has always been the “Bagger Guy”. 2006 is not over. So, Brian is busy at designing & manufacturing a new line of WFB (World’s Fastest Bagger) parts specifically designed for touring models.
