Iron Horse Saloon Sturgis Hosting Grease & Gears Garage Round Two!
Industry leading builders and craftsmen to hold live demonstrations throughout the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally for the second year in 2017.
Sturgis, SD July 2017 :Last year Cycle Source Magazine and the Iron Horse Saloon launched a brand-new type of rally entertainment, the Grease & Gears Garage. Over a six day span some two dozen individual builders from the custom motorcycle industry took the stage to present to onlookers the nuts and bolts of what they do. Segments on welding, suspension, frame building and working the tools in a fabrication shop were all played out in front of the entire crowd at the Iron Horse Saloon but also to the world audience via FaceBook Live.
After such a huge success at both the Sturgis Rally in 2016 and the Republic of Texas Rally this year, Grease & Gears is running once again. Rally goers can see some of the top builders and craftsmen doing their thing, up close and personal, while answering any questions about how it’s done. To give you an idea of the incredible talent that’s been lined up for you this year, you can expect to see the likes of Billy Lane of Choppers Inc. working on a Sons of Speed Chassis, Will Ramsey of Faith Forgotten Choppers jig up a custom frame and build a one of a kind springer front end. RJ Powel of Cutting Edge Customs will bend handlebars and speed hole a custom fender. Xavier Muriel will show you how to properly align your drivetrain in a custom build using an S&S Motor and Baker Tranny. Tom Keefer of Franklin Church Choppers will give us all an education on the S&S family of carbs and demonstrate the rebuilding of the E and G models, live on stage. These one to three-hour demonstrations will be scheduled daily throughout the week beginning Sunday, August 6 through Friday August 11. Each performance will be interactive and allow for Q&A from the audiences on site and FaceBook Live via Cycle Source Magazine’s page. Additionally, there will be live interviews with some of the industries greats like Sugar Bear, Mondo Porras and Steve Massicotte of Paughco. There won’t be a bad seat in the house as monitors located on both sides of the stage will carry a live video feed and capture the up- close action.
There are more seminars and names being added to the lineup daily. Information will be available at www.cyclesource.com or www.ihsturgis.com. If you or your company would like to participate in a demonstration please contact Heather at firstname.lastname@example.org.
