Last Saturday at the V-Twin Expo, photographer Michael Lichter announced the theme of his next art exhibition in Sturgis at the Buffalo Chip. The exhibit will focus on the explosion of interest and the passion for custom motorcycles seen over the last 30-years.
Named “Eternal Combustion – 30 in the Wind”, it poses the question, “How is this passion passed on through time?” by displaying 30 recently built custom motorcycles by 15 pairs of builders tied together by family, respect, friendship or apprenticeship.
Michael Lichter will display his own work, something he has not done recently. and will celebrate his 30th anniversary of attending Sturgis Bike Week.
The builder teams highlighted within the show include: Arlen Ness & Paul Yaffe, Carl & Matt Olsen, Dave & Jody Perewitz, Donnie Smith & Brian Klock, Eddie Trotta & Todd Silicato, Kevin Baas & his Kennedy High School Chopper Class, Gard Hollinger & Satya Kraus, James & Dave Kaye, Jerry & David Covington, Kirk Taylor & Brian Schimke, Roland Sands & Drake McGillroy, Ron Finch & Gary Maurer, Ron & Hunter Simms, and Sugarbear & Counts Customs.
