Ormond Beach, FL (February 22, 2022) — Custom builders, industry celebs, and riders in the know will be at Bruce Rossmeyer’s Daytona Harley-Davidson on Sunday morning, March 6, 2022, for the Flying Piston Benefit Builders Breakfast. For the second year in a row, this stellar meet and greet brings the motorcycle industry together to kick off Daytona Bike Week and support new rider initiatives.
The signature feature of the Breakfast is the IRONe16 Build-Off presented by STACYC showcasing four professionally customized IRONe electric bikes, which will be unveiled and auctioned that morning.
“This Flying Piston Breakfast revives the builder breakfast events of the mid-2000’s when Bruce Rossmeyer himself welcomed us to gather the riding community in support of local charities,” said Marilyn Stemp, co-founder of Flying Piston Benefit. “We’re delighted that Shelly and Mandy Rossmeyer are carrying on the tradition, making a place for riders to meet legacy and emerging custom builders and to support the motorcycle community.”
The 2022 class of IRONe pro builders includes:
- Cory Ness of Arlen Ness Enterprises,
- Gina Woods of Open Road Radio
- Brian Schaffran of Skidmark Garage
- NASCAR legend Rusty Wallace with his son Steven Wallace of SouthernCountry Customs.
Each builder customizes Harley-Davidson’s top-of-the-line model: the IRONe 12 Brushless and extended range lithium ion battery-powered electric balance bike.
“The first step to a motorcycle license is learning how to ride a bicycle,” said Mandy Rossmeyer, Director of Marketing & Events at Bruce Rossmeyer’s H-D. “We are excited to again bring the Flying Piston Builder’s Breakfast to Bruce Rossmeyer’s Daytona Harley-Davidson at Destination Daytona and proud to support motorcycling in our local community by enabling an All Kids Bike training program at Ormond Beach Elementary School.”
Added STACYC’s Matt Schumann, “The team at STACYC are always excited to grow the next generation of riders. Supporting programs like the Flying Piston Builders Breakfast and the Rossmeyers are great ways to share the love of riding. We can’t wait to see the creativity these builders share.”
In the spirit of such events held at Bruce Rossmeyer’s over a decade ago, dozens of world-class custom builders have been invited to attend for the meet and greet. Names will be released as invitations are accepted. Along with the unveiling of the five custom IRONe bikes and a hearty breakfast, attendees can bid on original artwork and other gearhead items.
