Bike Build-Off Returns For Gettysburg Bike Week, July 9 – 12, 2015



This year’s Gettysburg Bike Week motorcycle rally will see the return of the bike build-off contest. Three custom builders will compete, completing their design-and-builds pre-rally, then displaying them during Gettysburg Bike Week 2015, July 9 – July 12.

“The bike build-off is always a crowd favorite,” says event coordinator Kelly Shue. “This year it’s back in style with three top-flight bike builders.”

This year’s Gettysburg Bike Week 2015 bike build-off combatants:

Greg Carter and Scott Fisher operate Vicious Cycles, Inc., out of a 3,500-square-foot facility with four service bays and a retail showroom. Carter started the company in 1999, and Fisher joined him in 2005. Fueled by the passion of its two principals, Vicious Cycles has produced some true one-off custom machines and its designs have won various awards and been featured in many magazines.

Tom Keefer started Franklin Church Choppers in Dillsburg, PA, ten years ago, and it’s been growing and prospering ever since. Priding himself as an all-around motorcycle specialist, Tom says no job is too big or too small. From routine maintenance to full-on design-and-builds, Tom brings the passion, experience, and expertise of a true motorcycle master. Compelling design. Competitive pricing. Kick-ass craftsmanship. Franklin Church Choppers.

Hellion Custom Cycles is veteran owned and operated by Bill Raber. And what better place to run a custom-build bike shop than Mechanicsburg, PA? Custom bikes are Bill’s heart and soul: performance engines, Bagger builds, choppers, bobbers, café racers–you want it? Bill can build it. And don’t forget: all armed service veterans enjoy a ten percent discount at Hellion Custom Cycles.

All of the bike builders will be on hand at Gettysburg Bike Week, July 9 – July 12, 2015, to display their bikes.
