Sturgis Buffalo Chip Challenge. Custom Harley Road Glide Completed By Students.

The finished motorcycle that a group of 11 high school seniors built for the Buffalo Chip was unveiled at Sturgis Brown High School on Monday, April 30. It is the first time in the history of the Buffalo Chip Challenge Program that the one-of-a-kind custom Harley-Davidson® was built by a dedicated group of local Sturgis high school students.

The custom bike will be auctioned off in support of the Legends Ride, a charity event that has donated more than $200,000 to local Black Hills charities.

The auction will be held during the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally at the Legendary Buffalo Chip Camp Resort after the 5th Legends Ride on August 6, 2012. The Sturgis Motorcycle Museum and Hall of Fame and the Black Hills Special Olympics will receive the proceeds from the bike’s auction. Auction information and Legends Ride tickets are available at Buffalo Chip.

The Harley Road King donated by Black Hill Harley-Davidson, was torn down and, with high end aftermarket components and design modifications, customized by the students of Sturgis High School under the tutelage of Keith Terry of Terry Components, transforming it into a ridable masterpiece of metal art. “The Buffalo Chip Challenge program gives students hands on education that is not possible at any other high school that I know of” says Keith Terry of Terry Components. “Students use skills they learned in classes like geometry and art in a practical, real world environment. This 21st century learning environment is what helps make the Buffalo Chip Challenge program so unique and rewarding to all those involved.“

Black Hills Harley-Davidson donated the Road King to the project. Avon Tyres, Black Widow Cams, Corbin Seats, Dakota Digital, Inc. Dakota V-Twin, Dimension Custom Paint & Body, Handy Industries, Hawg Halters, Inc., Hawg Wired, Inc., Hot Leathers, K & G Cycles, Inc., Klock Werks Kustom Cycles, Legend Air Suspensions, R.C. Components, Sinister Industries and Thunder Cycle Design, Inc. also donated parts for the project.

    Congrats, good to see others doing this with the students in school. I have been building bikes in class at the high school I teach at since 2003 in my classroom and it is great for the kids. Our school website is kennedy chopper Let Keith know if he ever needs any help with the school end of things to get a hold of me. He says he didn’t know of any others doing this but since I started my class we have gotten 5 others schools involved in similar school builds, it’s good to get all the schools on board together to collaborate.
