Motorcycle Missions recently held a build-off between one team in Dallas and one in Austin, that was supported by Indian Motorcycle who donated a couple of Indian Chief Dark Horses. The two teams worked to build these bikes and now they are being auctioned with all proceeds going to Motorcycle Missions. This auction will help Motorcycle Missions continue to host veterans and first responders with unique wrenching and riding programs and outreach events.
The two bikes will each be auctioned in Sturgis at the Black Hills Rally. The auction is on Tuesday, Aug. 6, at the Deadwood Mountain Grand Hotel and Casino, but you can start your bidding now online. You do not need to be present to bid and the new owners will be announced at 7 p.m. at the Deadwood Mountain Grand.
The bikes can also be previewed at the following locations leading up to the auction:
- Aug. 3 – The Iron Horse Saloon Garage Build Bike Show, 12-5 p.m.
- Aug. 4 (morning) – The Builders Breakfast at The Flying Piston at the Buffalo Chip, 9-11 a.m.
- Aug. 4 (afternoon to evening) – The Deadwood Mountain Grand leading up to the auction (following the IMC Riders Group Ride)
- Aug. 5-6 – The Deadwood Mountain Grand, both days leading up to the auction
Each bike reflects the stripped-down nature of their Indian Chief Dark Horse donors but taken to an extreme and built through the Motorcycle Missions program. They represent the strengths and sacrifices of those who chose to stand the line for their fellow Americans, and that pride can be seen in the details on each of the bikes. You can bid online as well or at the Deadwood Mountain Grand on Aug. 6.
