2018 Building Custom Striders

Custom Bike Builders in 2018 Building Custom Striders

The following list of builders participated in the custom Strider build for the 2018 Flying Piston Builder Breakfast Benefit. Each Strider is customized to the builder’s taste. Only one requirement:  the Strider logo on the cross bar of the handlebars. And “most” of the builders complied with this one requirement. 🙂

Each bike is fitted with a custom stand and then presented at the breakfast and at other events in and around Sturgis. Throughout the year,       the bikes make their way to rallies and events including the Blue Ridge Run AMD Custom Bike Show and AIMExpo. After traveling for a year, they make their way back to the 2019 edition of the Flying Piston Builder Breakfast Benefit to be raffled off at the charity breakfast.
