This is the second stop on the 2017 Grease & Gears tour at The Iron Horse in Sturgis and we will be coming to  several other locations  soon to be announced, so stay tuned for more.


The Iron Horse Saloon is coming to town. That’s right, quite possibly the world’s most iconic and famous biker fun spot is setting up shop on the corner of Lazelle and Junction in the previous spot of Easyrider Saloon.  Now the name is  changing,  the style and atmosphere will change to fit more into the Horse World System but what will stay the same are the people behind the establishment and the level of  entertainment that people have come to love over their 5-year history. During that time, the spot on Junction and Lazelle has made some incredible  headway  in the  type of facilitythey run.  3 incredible  restaurants  inside their building; a  proper sit down dining location on the first floor,  afast food joint with pizza and hamburgers on the 2nd floor,  and all the way up top  all you  can eat prime rib and crab legs in their 3rd floor restaurant. They have some of the most notable names in music regularly grace their stages with Lynch Mob being the first announcement of this year and much more to follow.  In their huge  courtyard a  giant  pro audio stage sits  as the center  piece  that can be viewed from  anywhere you sit or stand. If there is any chance that you might not have the best seat in the house, two giant LED screens hang at both sides of the stage to give event goers  a  firsthand look  at what’s happening right  up front. There are porch type deck walkways all around the upper level and seating throughout. Day time activities have always played a huge role in what they do;  this  year will be no different  as they  already have The Cycle Source / Michael Lichter Ride, The Perewitz Paint Show on Wednesday  and The Cycle Source Custom Bike Show  on Thursday that will be awarding a  complete rolling chassis  to the Best  of Show  winner on the calendar.  There are a  few things  in the works right now  that I can tell you  will be absolute game changers,  but you  will have to watch the web  site for  all the announcements.

Additionally,  the signs  that adorn the building will change  to display the iconic name, Iron Horse Saloon, that began in Daytona over 30 years ago but more importantly they are going to do their best to bring the feel of  that unmistakable property  along with it.  I am thrilled to have the honor  of  announcing the return of  the original Broken Spoke.  Many people don’t  know  that the real reason the original Spoke disappeared from this location was the result of a massive snow storm in 2014. The damage left to the building when the roof collapsed left it an unrealistic proposition to rebuild. The plans are to re-create a structure at the exact spot where the Spoke stood for so many years to honor the OG and give people a meeting point  that will be just like the feel of  its roots  and heritage.

While we at Cycle Source have heavy hearts as we mourn the passing of the torch as it pertains to the Campground at County Line, our longtime home in SD, the news of the World Famous Iron Horse Saloon and original Broken Spoke location sets the tone for the beginning of a  new  decade,  and one  that we can’t wait to see flourish on Lazelle.
