Gary Maurer “No Reservation” Bike
Gary Maurer of Kustoms, Inc. brought in the “No Reservation” bike. This is just one of the many quality bikes from the Detroit round.

It was a pleasure to see many of the builders standing by their bikes and talking with the crowd. After poling a few of the custom bike builders we found out that a couple of them had lined up projects with attendees of the International Motorcycle Show.

Well it’s finally here, the 70th annual gathering of bikers where the (Black) hills are alive with the sound of full-throttle engines, plenty of music, and an estimated half million bikers and their friends from around the world. This once-a-year gathering runs today through Sunday in Sturgis, S.D., and is hands down the biggest biker bash on the planet.

We ended the day at the preview party for the 2010 of the AMD World Championship of Custom Bike Building. The first person we ran into was our friend from Medford, Oregon, Mark Daley of Thunderstruck Customs who is entering a bike in the show.
