The Black List Tour Hits Full Throttle

Full Throttle is one of those must-see venues for Sturgis, which is why The Black List Tour is bringing its high-octane mix of customs, art, music, and extreme sports there for the rally.

An all-star roster of the nation's top custom builders and athletes teamed up to produce this ground-breaking entertainment platform called The Black List Tour. It's a hard-core fusion of skateboarding, Moto X, hot rods, custom bikes, music, and art, designed to redefine rally entertainment and provide a platform for cross-generational expression. According to Tour Coordinator Chad Petit, "Our goal for the tour is to showcase the custom lifestyle on a whole new level. We all like bikes, cars, moto-cross, skateboarding, snowboarding, and a good mix of music from punk to rock-a-billy to hard-core rock-you name it. The Black List Tour will allow people to experience custom culture on a new level."

The Black List Tour 2007 Sturgis participants are:

Twisted Choppers

Defined by their metalworking mastery, they were winners on Discovery Channel's Biker Build-Off, featured in Michael Lichter's coffee-table book, Choppers-Heavy Metal Art, and have had more than 30 national and international magazine features.

Sucker Punch Sally's:

Leaders in the charge to bring the bobber back into style and bring customs to the average guy while still making head-spinning one-off projects, with more than 20 international magazine features and a growing manufacturing operation.

Leroy-Thompson Choppers:

Winners on the last episode of the new season of The Learning Channel's Biker Build-Off and featured in the book The Art of the Bobber, as well as in every major motorcycle publication. Each of their projects has a unique appearance, while they still retain their expert craftsmanship.

Led Sled Customs:

A rising star in the industry, creating one-off masterpieces out of Sportsters and other unlikely sources, most likely stirring things up with flaming burnouts.

These talented builders will collaborate and build a complete bike on stage during Sturgis Bike Week that will be given away-that's right, no $20, $50, or $100 ticket-at the Black List Area in front of the Full Throttle Saloon to one lucky individual on August 10, 2007.
