Sturgis students begin building custom motorcycle


Students at a local high school begin work on a stock motorcycle that some say could become one of the top custom bikes in the nation.
Sturgis Brown High School kicked off the 4th Annual Sturgis Buffalo Chip's Student Build Challenge Tuesday.

Over the next several months students will get their hands dirty transforming a 2012 Harley Davidson Road King into a one of kind, show quality bike.

The challenge is a unique opportunity for students to get hands on experience with guidance from motorcycle industry veterans, which can benefit them in the future.
"We're really excited about it, it's a once in a lifetime opportunity, a lot of these kids might not even be going into a field that relates to this, but they learn so much from it that it can be applied anywhere," says SBHS Senior David Owen, one of the 15 students who will be working on the bike.
The completed custom bike will be auctioned off in support of the Legends Ride charity event on August 5th.
