Every year, several thousands of Sturgis rally goers come to visit Michael Lichter’s exhibition of “Motorcycles As Art“. This year, from August 7th to 13th, the exhibit is named ” “Eternal Combustion- 30 in the Wind” and will focus on the explosion of interest and passion for custom motorcycles over the last thirty years. It is intended to show the public at large how passion is passed on through time. 30 custom motorcycles recently built by 15 pairs of builders tied together by family, respect, friendship or apprenticeship will be on display at the impressive 6500 square feet Lichter Exhibition Hall located on the grounds of the Sturgis Buffalo Chip.
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 McElroy, Ron Finch & Gary Maurer, Ron & Hunter Simms, Sugarbear & Counts Customs, Laura Klock and Athena Ransom.
In addition, Michael Lichter will celebrate his 30th Sturgis Bike Week and will celebrate this milestone anniversary by displaying the best from his archives of limited edition prints, including many images being premiered for the first time.
The most eagerly anticipated exhibition of its kind, the “Motorcycles As Art” exhibition provides Sturgis rally visitors with a unique and unforgettable experience.
