Custom motorcycle enthusiasts have a rare opportunity to join renowned U.S. and international custom builders and industry luminaries for a meet and greet to benefit educational scholarships during the second annual Flying Piston Charity Breakfast at the Sturgis Buffalo Chip.

Builders displaying in the Buffalo Chip’s 2016 Motorcycles As Art Exhibition, curated by Michael Lichter, will gather with other invited top-name builders to shake hands, sign autographs and pose for pictures with fans and friends. The event, organized by The Flying Piston and sponsored by Jekill & Hyde Exhaust and Yelvinton Cycles, takes place Sunday, Aug. 7 beginning at 9:30 a.m. at the Big Engine Bar in the Chip’s free-access CrossRoads.

Ticket holders will also enjoy a catered breakfast and a silent auction of selected items autographed by the builders, plus the chance to meet the Chip’s own Rod “Woody” Woodruff, photographer Michael Lichter and special surprise guests.

Guests will have the opportunity to visit with the likes of Bill Dodge, Eddie Trotta, Paul Cox, Roland Sands, Kevin Baas, Aki Sakamoto, Jeff Cochran, and many more to get the inside scoop on their one-off customs in this year’s exhibition. Cycle Source Editor Chris Callen and Hot Bike Editor Jeff Holt have bikes in the exhibit and will be on hand.

A limited number of builder breakfast tickets are on sale now for $20 each at www.BuffaloChip.com/FlyingPistonBreakfast. All proceeds benefit the Buffalo Chip’s Scholarship Fund established to help high school graduates and U.S. military veterans pursue motorcycling as a career. Silent auction items are provided by Harley-Davidson Footwear, Revere Seats, Artist Darren McKeag, Low Brow Artist Atomic Bob, Aeromach, Cycle Source, Jekill & Hyde and others.
