Calling For 2019 Custom Strider Builders

Paul Yaffe’s version of Captain America

We are Looking For Our 2019 Custom Strider Builders

We are looking for our 2019 Custom Strider Builders to participate in the Strider promotion for the 2019 Flying Piston Builder Breakfast Benefit. Each Strider is customized to the builder’s taste with the only requirement being the Strider logo on the cross bar of the handlebars.

The bike is then presented at the breakfast and at other events in Sturgis and across the country. At the following annual breakfast they are raffled off at the charity breakfast. Fairless, Yaffe and Jody Perewitz are just a few of builders that participated in 2018. For details on our 2018 breakfast, click here.
