Limited Edition Duo Glide Replica To Be Auctioned At Sturgis Annual Legend Ride.

To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Duo glide, a limited edition Duo Glide Replica called “Destination Duo™” presented by Bruce Rossmeyer’s Destination Daytona and built by Sucker Punch Sally’s will be auctioned off during the First Annual Legends Ride, Celebrity-Charity Event Sturgis 2008. A total of 50 “Destination Duo” will be built and will feature a Panhead™ style power plant, a 5-speed kick or electric transmission, an original style 2 into 2 exhaust combination, a functional custom leather seat, an optional buddy seat and a choice of a Springer or hydraulic front-end.The bike encompasses the look of the first year of the American fully-suspended, functionally-driven motorcycle. This is the 1st of many projects that Sucker Punch Sally and Bruce Rossmeyer’s Destination Daytona are partnering in. Scheduled for Thursday, August 7 during the 2008 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, the Legends Ride presented by the legendary Buffalo Chip and sponsored by the City of Deadwood has already raised over $30,000 for the Kids & Chrome Foundation, which in turn benefits the Children’s Home Society and the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum. After enjoying a variety of entertainment at Deadwood Tobacco Company and an exclusive appearance by the Playboy Playmates at The Silverado-Franklin Gaming Complex, Legends Ride participants (including well known custom builders) will be escorted on a beautiful, 50-mile ride through “The Hills of Dakota” on the way to the Legendary Buffalo Chip for food, drinks and concert featuring the red hot country duo,Sugarland and rock and roll hall of famers ZZ Top. Tickets for the Legends Ride may be purchased for $150 online at Legends Ride or for $200 the day of the event.  Participants will receive a souvenir gift pack which includes an official event T-shirt, poster and other sponsor items, plus food, drinks and concert admission.

Correction On July 21, 08. Hey Cyril, Lon Nordbye with the Buffalo Chip in Sturgis.  Thank you so much for posting the information on our Legends Ride celebrity-charity event in Sturgis and the bike we are auctioning off that was so graciously donated by Sucker Punch Sally’s and Destination Daytona.  In our excitement to get the word out about this development, which will allow our event to raise tens of thousands of additional dollars for the Children’s Home Society and the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum, we accidently submitted the wrong version of the press release which included a picture of Sucker Punch’s “Swinger” motorcycle from their 2008 model lineup which is not the limited edition “Destination Duo” that will be auctioned off highlighting the conclusion of the Legends Ride.  
So with that being said, I would like to kindly request that you post this reply so that Sucker Punch Sally’s and Destination Daytona can get the proper focus and credit they deserve as being two of the main contributors for our event which has already raised over $30,000 for the Children’s Home Society and the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum.  Again, we apologize for the inconvenience or confusion this may have caused your readers and we will be happy to post pictures of the Destination Duo bike in our post event coverage as part of this successful and worthwhile event in Sturgis. They deserve nothing but positive feedback for their efforts as this event would not be possible without their support and generosity. 
Thanks,

    It’s a good looking bike, but I wish they had tried a little harder to make it look more like the classic Duo-Glide. I understand taking liberties like modern brakes and electric start, but that’s a straight up Evo, which looks nothing like a generator Panhead, I mean, couldn’t they at least put the Xzotic pan tops on it? It isn’t pictured but I guess the primary is also wrong (if electric start)… the oil tank is all wrong, exhaust is wrong, front end is way wrong, and the pogo-mount seat is nowhere to be found, no floor boards either.
    After market companies have all the parts to make a very good “imposter” Duo-Glide with all the modern elements cleverly disguised to represent the classic style, and they’re not even expensive, in fact it probably cost more to assemble the bike pictured above, than to have used the more period correct parts I just mentioned… I don’t get it.

    That ain’t no Duo Glide. This is what sickens me about this market. Hocus Pocus. It’s really too bad that the folks that don’t have a clue about the notorious Duo Glide will see this bike and think that this is what the Duo Glide was all about. You cannot call this a replica Duo Glide!

    You are only making 50. Why then wouldn’t you be authentic? The market value would be higher for re-sale and offer the charity a pretty penny at auction. This just misses the mark. Harley Davidson should protest in order to have the integrity of the marketing scheme changed completely.

    What the hell is the Sucker Punch boys doing with Rossmeyer?

    Rodent, That was my inner question. I guess “follow the money” at any cost is in play.

    Thanks for the Comments on the bike you are all absolutely correct in your comments, because THAT IS NOT THE BIKE. That is our Swinger model from our 2008 model line at Suckerpunch Sallys. The bike absolutely has a Panhead motor, is kick and electric, has period correct shocks, lights, frontend, lights, fenders, pogo seat, custom leather seat, tool box, floor boards, on and on. We are big fans as anyone knows of the classic american bikes and the Duo is no exception. Everyone will be more then happy with our representation, we have worked our asses off to make it correct. Please don’t let the photo that shouldn’t be up there sway your opinion until you see it in person. We think you will love it. We don’t cut corners. I don’t know how the photo got up there but I will try to get the correct one up there ASAP.
    Thanks again,

    Thanks for the heads-up Christian. I think all of us commenting are well aware that you guys know your stuff… that’s why we were a little freaked out by the photo accompanying this article. I look forward to seeing the real bike, and apologies all around!
