About Us

Bikers providing a hand up

The Flying Piston is an organization that produces charitable events to assist in raising awareness and funds for non-profits and individuals in the biker community.

Good things happen when great people get together for a reason. That is evident at the annual Flying Piston Builders Breakfast held at the Buffalo Chip CrossRoads on the first Sunday of the Sturgis Rally. Invited custom motorcycle builders whose bikes are featured in the Chip’s Motorcycles As Art exhibit gather with industry notables and enthusiasts to raise funds for technical education scholarships and veterans with PTSD.

Our most recent project includes the Charity Breakfast in Sturgis for veterans and students entering in the Powersports career.

We work with our sponsors to increase their brand awareness and integrate their participation with cause marketing. We do this by providing materials that they can use to use for their outreach and to increase their effectiveness.
